Born a no one – still trying to be someone!


This session explains the journey of a bullied, nervous, young boy who grew to become the man he literally dreamt he would be…A leader. I explore the concept of whether Leaders are born or are they made? I suggest they (Leaders) are born and that we are surrounded in our schools with future leaders…but we fail to spot them at an early age. I use examples of my life journey when I felt empowered to make decisions but saw that empowerment quickly crushed by unforgiving teachers who fail spot those moments of hope that I harboured.

Across two days, over 250 sessions will take place at the Festival. A full timetable of sessions will be available from late May 2019. Until this point we will only be announcing the day(s) sessions will be taking place.
