An engaging, challenging talk which involves personal stories, theories, videos and discussion. An hour long presentation suitable for all pupils over the age of 11.
It resonated so clearly, and I wish I’d had someone speaking to me about things like I Can & I Am when I was their age. It lands with them, and they get it. It’s fantastic!
James Foster, Teacher, Cothill House School
James is not an instructor, but is passionate to see pupils being ‘proactively’ pastored. This presentation aims to inspire and encourage Tutors and Staff rather than inform.
Senior Management Team Session
James loves to spend time with pastoral decision makers. This is a forty five minute session.
James is a real believer in Schools & Parents working together for the best interests of young people. An hour long presentation with added time for Q&A.
Pastoral Proactivity Insets (Whole Staff)
James has delivered his inspired pastoral message to a number of whole staff insets.
The staff were totally absorbed throughout, they will have taken away a great deal
Sid Inglis, Headmaster, Elstree School
Pastoral Staff Training
James has visited a number of schools to speak, inspire & encourage key pastoral workers. Discussions, personal experience and central I Can & I Am principles prevail here.
There will be a number of Cheltonians who will have a better term because of you. Thank you
Crispin Dawson, Deputy Head Pastoral, Cheltenham College
James greatly enjoys speaking to groups of pupils who are leading the school community. An hour long presentation seeking to pass on key tenets of compassionate leadership. The pastoral heart is central here.
Assemblies/ Chapel Addresses
James has done many of these & his story of battling/overcoming a major life setback is great for pupils and staff to hear.
I have rarely seen our Year 10’s more inspired than after your chapel address.
An Eton Housemaster
Christian Union Talks
Faith is central to James’ journey & he enjoys speaking to groups specifically about ‘how’ hisfaith has got him through.
James has been asked to speak at a number of formal set pieces & his experiences have always been valued. E.g. Prize Giving
James was quite simply inspirational. His story and his message was clear and months later, parents still talk about him.
Parent, Hazlegrove School
James works with individuals, young people and adults, seeking to listen, empathise and support. James then tries to encourage and affirm them using I Can and I Am principles.
