Gavin is a truly motivational speaker. His inspiration for what he does comes from where he started out his career—primary school teaching. He is a firm believer that we as adults can be every bit as inspired by young children as they can by us grown-ups. Gavin transports his audience back to when they were just 5 years of age, a time when we feared nothing and embraced everything. You will laugh, you will cry, you will feel and you will never eat broccoli in the same way again!
Over the past decade, delivering on themes such as Leadership, Engagement, High Performing Teams and Creativity, Gavin has inspired literally hundreds of thousands of people to rediscover and embrace “that wee piece of magic”. Gavin is now regarded as one of the most talented and sought after speakers in the world.
This week, Tara Elie speaks to Gavin about how adults need to be more like children and how we should all give ourselves permission to play and enjoy life.
He offers suggestions for teachers on how to remain sane at Christmas with their classes and also reads his favourite book – you might be surprised to hear what it is!
