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.
Ian was incredibly passionate and interesting when talking about the importance of soft-skills such as resilience and determination, skills he’s used throughout his life. These are skills young people develop doing a DofE programme, and Ian inspired and motivated both the young people receiving their Award, and their guest! Thank you for your donating your time to speak at the Gold Award Presentation at St James’s Palace.
