"We sometimes assume that success is bestowed on the lucky few, but the truth is that success is much less about luck or chance than hard work"

Floyd Woodrow MBE DCM is not what you think.

He came to our attention via Associate Julie Rees who was a delegate on Floyd’s unique 48 hour non-stop training programme. The best leadership training she had ever done, she told us.

What makes Floyd stand out isn’t that he was among the youngest ever members of the SAS, that he received the DCM and the MBE for his work in Iraq and Afghanistan, that he led the UK’s Counter Terrorism Unit and has ‘Hostage Negotiator’ on his CV. It isn’t even that his current clients include the Welsh and Scottish Rugby Football Unions and the English Cricket Board.

What makes Floyd stand out is that he has done it all with a clear focus on values, integrity and compassion and this is what comes through loud and clear in his work on leadership with adults and on achievement and motivation with young people.

"Floyd was amazing!"

"I would like to say a huge thank you...after 10 years I can say that you really were the best keynote to end a conference that we have ever had. Your session was first-class, you certainly finished conference with clear messages that they can take away and thread into their respective areas of work and lives"

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.
