You reminded me why I love my job – and what a privileged position I’m in – which, after many years of teaching and with all the stress of the new term – is something that I do occasionally forget! Thank you so much for your inspiring words!

Your talk was inspirational. You have found your rightful place as one who inflates balloons and inspires. Your delivery is faultless and your kindness and empathy are in huge abundance. The level of connection and engagement that was displayed on all the parents’ faces showed your affect on all in the room was profound.

James Shone’s talk should have been compulsory for all pupils! It made you realise we make everything a big deal and it’s really not. The room was silent, we couldn’t take our eyes off him - the best lecture ever.

I have rarely seen boys, staff and parents as moved and mesmerised as they were during all your presentations and the feedback I have received is testament to how many people you reached out to during the day. Thank you for sharing your personal experience in such a positive way and for inspiring us all.

I found your talk, inspiring, encouraging, upsetting, uplifting … I think I went through every emotion and really am quite proud that I held it together. I admire your courage and relentless optimism immensely and agree with all of your points.

I really can’t do justice to James’ incredible story nor the muscle of his messages so I’d implore anyone interested see him. You will almost certainly leave inspired and also perhaps irrevocably changed.
