Motivational Talks: From Classroom to Boardroom.

16th Jan 2019

Lee’s been the focus of a story in the ‘Northern Echo’ with his ‘Get good at School’ initiative tour;

“STUDENTS have been inspired by a motivational speaker to look to their future in the run-up to impending exams.

Motivational speaker and self-help author Lee Jackson addressed Year 11 and Year 13 students at the Wensleydale School and Sixth Form as they prepare to sit GCSEs and A Levels.

Billingham-born and now based in Leeds, Mr. Jackson will become president of the Professional Speaking Association in the UK and Ireland in October.

An award-winning teenage DJ and a youth worker, he has been speaking to audiences of all sizes for the past eight years as a motivational speaker in business and education.

He told students: “You are experts in education. The fact you are still here means you have the ability to do it. Up to this point, you have taken many exams so you know you can do them.”

“Ding is the noise your brain hears when you learn something new,” he said. “But learning only ever takes place when you put it into practice.

“Every second counts, and there is not enough time in the day to study and spend five hours online and on social media.

“Write down your ideas or you will forget them and it is the little steps that make a difference. Behave well in lessons and encourage your friends. Keep going as you are approaching the final hurdle.”
