Boosting the UK’s digital skills
We are excited to be a part of the new future.now coalition with leading companies and civil society groups working in collaboration with government to boost the UK’s digital skills. The future.now aim is to inspire behavioural change across society that could lead to a genuine cultural shift. The focus is on lifelong learning and developing the digital skills people require for work – helping them identify the skills they need and showing them where to get them.
"The Flossy and Jim pledge to the Future.Now coalition is to ensure no young person is left behind with digital technology"
As part of this pledge we are now offering free creative digital workshops! Please get in touch via the 'contact' page for more information on all of our workshops and to make a booking! 😀 😃 ⠀
Motivational talks and workshops to promote resilience and growth mindset
Have you ever stood in front of a 'scary mountain of doom?' We LOVE talking about these mountains at schools, colleges and universities. We think life is full of these mountains. Maybe you just got a fat stack of homework to do, or you have to tidy your really messy bedroom. Maybe you have an even scarier mountain to climb, maybe you have exams coming up, a work placement or you are thinking about going to college or university? These tasks can fill us with fear and that horrible doom feeling. In our talks we discuss how we can use these feelings to drive us up the mountain and reach the top where all the good stuff is waiting. If you fall down climbing your mountain you MUST get back up. Never stop trying to get to the top. Once you reach the top of the scary mountain, you realise it was never that scary after all. Always remember...be kind to yourself and be your own cheerleader. Keep being brave and just keep climbing. If you can do this, you can do anything and THAT is when life gets very exciting.
Our inspirational talks have had fantastic feedback from children in primary school and all the way to young adults at University...
"Flossy and Jim were really funny telling us their story. I laughed my head off at the funny poodle who is a cheerleader and now I am going to be brave when I do my spelling tests." (Harley aged 6)
"This talk was so inspiring and completely shocking at how much you can build on not much of a foundation. It’s inspired me to pursue my passions and get a better education. Honestly nice people and they really connected with everyone in the room." (Gabriella aged 13)
"I have learnt to use my 'armadillo of anxiety' to push myself further to my full potential. The talk and workshop was really motivating and encouraging. I was feeling a bit rubbish about my exams but now I'm ready for the challenge." (Harry aged 15)
