Staff Inset Keynote

John has been referred to as the 21st century Aristotle, with the wisdom of the Dalai Lama, yet the looks and humour of Paddy McGuinness. (Adrian Bethune’s words, not mine)

Thought-provoking, inspiring and honest, John’s life journey follows the story of a young boy heading in the wrong direction, who later became a best-selling author and the founder of a global ‘Kindness’ movement that has gone on to transform the mental health and wellbeing of thousands of staff and pupils across the UK and beyond.

With great vulnerability, John will share with your staff his childhood experience of deprivation and how he overcame adversity, with a view to help your pupils experiencing:
