“Your education is your number one key to unlocking a whole world of opportunities”
Jim Roberson
Jim Roberson is a man who leaves an impression. Whether he’s working directly with staff or with young people who need to seriously improve their game when it comes to school, Jim’s work is direct, passionate and powerful.

He combines his own experience of the importance of education (and sport) growing up in New York with his many years’ experience in challenging schools across the UK. Using practical, common-sense ideas delivered in his own inimitable style, he genuinely puts the young person in control. For Jim, responsibility, accountability and preparation are critical to success along with the understanding that it’s not about ‘behaviour’, it’s about the self-discipline needed to do the right thing when it needs to be done in the way it needs to be done - and do it that way every time. In this way this self-styled ‘Discipline Coach’ has transformed the lives of many, many young people.

Feedback from recent events include:

"Jim was amazing! "

"Skyla thought Jim Roberson was "amazing", she hasn't stopped talking about him all week, and he has been a real influence on Skyla. Mum believes Jim has given Skyla a really positive boost for the exams....so thank you!"

"We have had the privilege today of working with Jim Roberson in the Isle of Man. Despite his plane being delayed, Jim was flexible ‘on point’ (to use his phrase) and absolutely brilliant. He was entertaining, provocative, challenging and inspiring. We more than received our money’s worth with staff informing me that he has provided the most motivational training of their careers. More than that, there were lots of practical strategies that colleagues could use in the classroom. We will certainly work with Jim again"

“You are inspirational, I won’t forget what you taught me and my year group. You have really motivated me to do my best”

“An absolute privilege to be there to witness this awesomeness that is Jim Roberson. Like a pent up inspirational tiger!”

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.
