Jaz Ampaw-Farr
Speaker Spotlight.
Jazz Ampaw-Farr

My ‘About Me’ is really all about YOU…
… and the impact you have when you show up as your full-fat self.

If you told my younger self that I’d be on the other side of delivering over 3000 international keynotes to more than one million people, as a CEO, TV presenter, government advisor and stand up comedian known as the British Oprah, I’d have laughed so hard a little bit of wee would have come out!

Mind you, getting to university, becoming a teacher and founding a successful training business whilst on maternity leave should all be totally impossible for a foster care kid, a homeless teen and a child abused by their own parents.

It’s not though. I know this because I’ve been all three.

Charley Hartley
Speaker Spotlight
Charlie Hartley

briym (Building Resilience in Young Minds) was founded by Charlie Hartley.

Following 20 years of teaching, Charlie realised that her passion lay in supporting the ever-rising number of students suffering from anxiety and mental health problems.

Charlie trained as a therapist in 2013 and has built a very successful private practice working with adults and young people. She also provides mental health support to organisations and schools. She is passionate about promoting and developing positive mental health and developing lifelong resilience to cope in an ever-changing world.

Charlie is delighted to be a key note speaker where she will teach you how to effectively manage the stresses of work and life.

During the presentation we will look at how your brain works and what happens to your body and mind in stressful situations and teach a range of positive practical techniques that can be used to control your mental health and promote positive wellbeing.

Joe Sparks
Speaker Spotlight
Joe Sparks

Joe is a former CEO and now a Leadership Coach and Speaker.

In 2011, he founded an organisation that runs three Alternative Schools. One on a street, one on a farm and one in a pub. All three rated ‘Outstanding' in 2018 and again in 2023. Joe describes these judgments as 'The least interesting thing about our schools the people who work in them.’

‘Words’ is a talk created to inspire change in you and your leadership. Delivered with passion and never afraid to ruffle feathers. You will leave the room ready to turn what you’ve heard into action.

Joe is a regular speaker and contributor for PiXL and works alongside their CEO writing national strategies for leaders. He lives in Devon and when he isn’t speaking or coaching you’ll find him surfing, growing vegetables and walking the dogs. He is the trustee of an NGO in Ghana helping people from remote villages access education, training and work. Not interested in raising a profile or causing controversy, Joe actively avoids any form of limelight, not on on any social media platforms or part of any national debate. Instead, he spends his time listening, thinking and talking with leaders. He believes in making a big difference to a small group of people and hopes to inspire others to do the same. No photos, no tweets, no hashtags. Just leadership. This one is for you and only you in the room.
