About I Can & I Am
I Can & I Am’ is a charity with a passion to inspire confidence in every individual and enable them to get to know who they are and what they are able to do, rather than focussing on what they can’t. Founded by teacher James Shone we raise funds to enable the messages of ‘I Can & I Am’ to be spread to as many school children as possible across the UK.
The charity’s patron is Sir Anthony Seldon.
what we do
Many young people leave school with a developed sense of “I can’t” and “I am no good”. James delivers a series of inspirational presentations to help redress this issue and these can be tailored to suit any sized group of either pupils, parents or teachers. His original, passionate, personal and light-hearted approach ensure that his presentations receive high praise wherever he goes.
James also runs tailor made sessions for businesses large and small where he shares his life changing story and discusses how best to respond to serious set backs. In delivering many of the key messages of ‘I Can and I Am’ James provides a refreshing alternative approach to discussions of leadership, team building, customer service and confidence.
