KEYNOTE SPEECHES THAT TRANSFORM YOUR UNDERSTANDING OF CHILDREN AND YOUNG PEOPLE

We share powerful stories about lived and professional experiences that educate and inspire children’s services.

Powerful stories of lived and professional experience to challenge, inspire and motivate

Our keynotes are designed to challenge, inspire and motivate. Training and development that does not contextualise theory and system challenges can leave staff uninspired or overwhelmed. We provide the context of powerful stories of lived experience to bring these challenges to life and to offer new insights and new inspiration about what can be achieved. More than ever in our challenging working in environment there is a risk that people feel disconnected and isolated; we provide opportunities that bring people together to learn and be inspired by stories that will sustain the energy, motivation and understanding they need for their work with children.

When lived experience is missing from training and development and training is focused on theory, it can often be difficult to relate it to our day to day work with children. With COVID-19 services are having to adapt to digital making it difficult to provide development opportunities for staff and meaningful engagement for young people. More than ever there is the risk that people feel disconnected and isolated.

Our keynotes are opportunities to bring people together to learn and be inspired by stories that will enable them to build better relationships with children.
