A motivational speaker can have a huge impact on young people. A motivational speaker isn’t just limited to conferences or events, but they are also hugely beneficial for schools. A powerful motivational speaker will instil confidence, inspire and help young people stay on the right path.
According to a recent government survey in 2017, one in twelve 5 – 19 year olds suffer from an emotional disorder. This is only expected to rise.
Now more than ever, it’s important for young people to have a role model to look up to. Importantly, someone who can encourage positive thinking and attitudes.
Here are just some of the many reasons why a motivational speaker will be a benefit to your school.

A motivational speaker will help you realise your potential. They will help you reach for the best version of yourself, in whatever career path you may choose to take.

Self-esteem is at all time low amongst young people. A motivational speaker will help give you practical ways of helping to become more confident.
Recognising and understanding your feelings and emotions is important. As a result, you learn how to turn negative feelings into positive ones.

It’s important to develop team-work and leadership skills from a young age, this can prepare you for when you hit adult life. A motivational speaker will help guide you on best practices.
A motivational speaker will communicate with their audience, asking for input where necessary. Talking about personal challenges will help inspire young people to talks about theirs.
Personal health and mental well-being
Personal health is extremely beneficial to mental well-being. For instance, the practices you learn through sport, helps young people to strive to be the best version of themselves, even if you are not sport orientated,

Young people relate to others that have ‘been there and done that’ which enables them to connect to the speaker. Young people will have the opportunity to listen to the speakers failures and successes.
A motivational speaker offers a different perspective compared to teachers. They often come from many different backgrounds and professions. This also allows young people to feel more represented.
A motivational speaker bares all on the stage, flaws and all. Young people will see their confidence shine through the talk and will be able to apply it to their life.
Motivational Speaker for your School or College
I believe that every child deserves a chance. Above all, I take great pride in the fact that I have helped change so many young people’s lives. Unfortunately, so many young people are easily mis-led and influenced, whether that’s by getting into the wrong crowd or by social media. I have a real empathy and understanding of these issues. This brings out my passion for helping guide young people to stay on the right path.
My motivational talks consist of inspiring and instilling confidence. More so, being a person for young people to look up to and turn to in times of need.
