Ian is an athlete mentor, attending many schools around the UK where he inspires both teachers and students to aim for new highs. Ian will work with your teachers in either a group CPD session or coach them individually to assist with Work/Life balance, Conflict Management and to remember the WHY they started teaching again. Ian also works with students in tailored confidence workshops, or will deliver a motivational speech at your school awards or assembly.
I heard Ian speak at my own child’s school and felt inspired by what he was saying, so I decided to get him in to my school. Ian worked with the children, parents, staff and governors at the start of the academic year, we left that day feeling upbeat and determined to succeed in own personal goals. He really supported staff in being focused on what was important and what needed to be done. Children were also able to use the techniques that were taught during the day to help them focus. Ian has a great sense of humour and all sessions had a great deal of laughter too.
