“School is not just about finding yourself, it is also about truly creating yourself”
Dr David George
At a time when the idea of working with 'Gifted and Talented children' seems to have fallen out of fashion (again), Dr David George proves that it is really about understanding and stretching all children in our care.

For David, ‘G&T’ is not about elitism or favouritism but about finding the talents and gifts that all children have and working to bring those special qualities out in a way that ensures everyone wins. After all, as he often likes to say, ‘A rising tide lifts all ships’.

As a world-renowned speaker, academic and the writer of many books on the subject, David has long been at the forefront of helping schools bring the best out of their children and students. He is Founder President of the National Association for Able Children in Education, a consultant to the British Council and UNESCO and an executive committee member of The World Council of Gifted and Talented Children.

Feedback from recent events include:

"Just a quick note to say how well we enjoyed David George’s INSET session this morning. He was, in the words of colleagues, inspiring. He was informed, informative and had the rare knack of sustaining teachers’ attention for an extended period of time. Thank you!"

"Such a wonderful presentation of ideas, connections, strategies and poetry - was quite magical"

"A brilliant and totally fulfilling experience "

"A truly inspirational speaker"

"Very practical but also strongly backed by philosophy and ideas"

Getting It Right for the Gifted and Talented Learners

With Dr David George. Strategies to ensure ALL learners get the best from your teaching.

Parent Event

For many schools, getting parents to the school for an event is something that is only beaten in difficulty by getting the right parents to school for an event. That said, the parents who do come to our Learning and Motivation for Parents Events always head home buzzing with ideas that are not only helpful in dealing with their children but also very relevant for their own careers and personal development.

Governor Event

Being a governor is an incredibly important task these days so we are delighted when we are asked to support them in their work in all sorts of schools around the country. Apart from ensuring the event is an entertaining and enjoyable one for all, especialy as it is so often on a rainy Saturday, we make sure our input is informative, relevant, up to date and guarantees all governors go back into their schools knowing what to look for, what to do and the rights sorts of questions to ask.
