For Roy, the personal growth of the adult is linked to the development of the organisation. It is when we strive to address these two factors, uncomfortable though that can be, that we can really unlock the ability in all children. This is something he calls the ‘Butterfly Model’ and is something he is also successfully delivering through online educational communities that combine his personal input with a self-sustaining collaboration between teachers that is genuinely making a difference in schools.
Feedback from recent events include:
"We have had an amazing afternoon with Roy. We covered an enormous amount of information in such a short time, nevertheless, it was all hugely beneficial and I'm confident it will have a very positive impact over a long period of time. The feedback from staff was extremely positive and enthusiastic as we start our new year"
"Roy was engaging, entertaining and informative and delivered important messages regarding personal responsibility for learning. These messages were delivered with significant impact and demanded personal reflection from audience members in both sessions. Staff who attended the session were very impressed with Roy’s delivery and also the reference to the changing world we live in and the significance of developing multiple intelligences"
"I feel like I'm now inspired and motivated to change and teach these pupils"
"Just wanted to say a huge 'thank you' for coming to our school and doing the staff INSET - it was amazing to see so many people inspired and motivated. The afternoon session with Year 13 was a great follow-on from what you did with them last year and my tutor group found it sparked their enthusiasm again"
"I feel like I'm just on the verge of something significant. I want to be a fantastic teacher, I think I can be. Today I think will help me go forward with strength and hopefully change the world"

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.
