Sharing Stories Inspiring Growth
LIVING A CARELESS LIFE
The experience of living in care.
This inspirational and motivational keynote speech will provide you with personal experiences of what it is like for a child growing up in care of the local authority, provide you with a deep understanding of the power of relationships and remind you of that passion that got you into working with children.
Redefining 'leaving care'.
In this keynote we look at leaving care and its impact on young people. Through storytelling we hear authentic experiences of a young persons successful journey from care to independence, sharing with you how they choose to take control and 'lead' their own care, not 'leave' it.
LIVED EXPERIENCE LEADERSHIP
Incorporating 'lived experience' into service.
Living in care, leaving care and all the experiences in between can be both enlightening and challenging. Each time you move home, you learn adaptability, when you meet new social workers you learn soft skills, when you are homeless you learn how to survive. This talk redefines experience and shares how these can revolutionise leadership for children's social care.
The stories we tell literally make the world. If you want to change the world, you need to change your story. This truth applies both to individuals and institutions."
