Educational Talks

BLOWN AWAY - EDUCATIONAL TALKS

Educational Talks

I love giving educational talks to children and young adults about the power of potential and determination.

SMH

I have delivered Educational Talks to a diverse group of students, from Primary Schools, through to Secondary Schools and Colleges. Engaging with children and young adults is a privilege. I feel I can really make a difference in the way they think and feel. Inspiring and motivating those at a young age to get the best from what is available to them. There is always someone within a school or college who suffers with a short or long term restriction.  It’s important to show that everyone can be achieve their goals, but maybe in a different way.

How the Educational Talks work:

Generally I spend half a day with the each school or college. In the past I start by delivery the school assembly. I take the time to visit each class to answer questions for the pupils. There is no question off limits. Questions I have answered:

  • Do you have feet in your shoes?
  • How do you drive? Can you run?

I can discuss with the client individual requirements or formats.

Pricing £250 – £500 plus travel expenses

There is an alternative option:

The Blesma Community Programme provides free inspirational workshops in schools across the UK focusing on resilience and overcoming adversity. Run by
veterans and supported by workshop facilitators. This is a ground-breaking programme that we would like to bring to your school to inspire and motivate your
students.

The workshops will enhance your PSHE curriculum whilst great benefiting your students. Through listening to the first hand experiences of a wounded veteran and taking part in the supporting workshop. Your students will learn:

  • what resilience means
  • how they can apply it to their lives
  • which will give them the confidence to achieve their goals. 

If your school is interested in taking part in The BLESMA Community Programme, please contact info@thedriveproject.co.uk to book your FREE workshop.

An outstanding and entertaining speaker Simon Harmer engages his audience with warmth and humour. Out of personal experience as a solider in Afghanistan he illustrates the realities of twenty-first century warfare and how the individual can overcome tragedy and adversity. His story leaves those who hear him with a lasting reminder of the resilience of the human spirit and the power of positive thinking.
