Are you a teacher looking for a way to motivate and inspire your students?
Would you like to help years 10, 11 and the VI form become excited about the future?
Do the pupils at your school need a little more careers advice?
Shola’s talk for schools ‘Three Ingredients – the recipe for finding a career you love’ is fun, inspiring and down to earth. During her 45-minute to one hour talk designed for young people of both genders aged 13-18, she shares her childhood dream of becoming a singer and then discusses the outside influences and pressures that led her to abandon that dream in favour of studying The Sciences.
The core message of the speech encourages students to look within, get in touch with what truly motivates them and to use that as a beacon to guide them through the maze of exams, potential further study and ultimately, working life.
Shola’s talk is tailored to suit each school she speaks at. Depending upon the needs and interests of the students, Shola emphasises different aspects of her story and career path. She can focus on creativity, productivity, academics, the weight of family expectation and more.
Shola can take the students on a tour through her university studies as an undergrad at Cambridge and a PhD student in the USA, followed by a variety of careers including research science, teaching, corporate business, life coaching and the entertainment industry, pointing out the pros and cons, and highlighting the ideal personality traits required for each one.
Or the focus can be on how to find the confidence to stand out from the crowd and pursue a career you love.
She shares key life-lessons and tips on how to find the right path and how to resist outside pressures in favour of making decisions that are true to the heart.
