Positive Disruption Day at Shropshire Virtual School


When a client gives you carte blanche to design a conference that makes a ruckus and includes a takeover from care-experienced young people – well they had me at hello!

Together we planned a day including an interactive keynote from me, followed by a workshop with the young people, and then the takeover element.

The workshop was incredibly humbling and powerful to hear the young people verbalise how they wanted to be seen by the adults fighting for their highest good.

“I wish that when you talk to me you would do it as if we were equal”

and questions like:

“How can you help me repair relationships with friends and adults around me when things go wrong?”

The Positive Disruption Day included an incredibly difficult balloon activity for the adults and a choice of free T-Shirt Of Truth for the students. They all independently chose my Positive Disruptor tee, with one saying “ This is so me! I’m going to wear it next non-uniform day!”

This day was beyond special, not only did I get to talk to the everyday heroes of Shropshire Virtual School but I got to spend time listening to the aspirations of these remarkable young souls. Then the wonder that is Mark Finnis brought the day to land!

From discussions at the boardroom table, challenging conventional answers, and navigating the complexities of foster care. We got to listen to what these young people truly felt and wanted!

It was more than a workshop; it was a celebration of resilience and the power of youthful voices.
