Empower your teachers to make the impact they always dreamed of

Empower Your Educators

An Urban Strides keynote is engineered to ensure your team of educators walk away with fire in their bellies and passion in their hearts. Using inspirational real world stories and the latest research in the fields of educational psychology, neuroscience and bio chemistry your teachers will enjoy what the education revolution will look like first hand.





The hours can be long, the paper work doesn’t stop and what feels like endless emails can sometimes feel like teaching is no fun at all. We all need a reminder. A refresher. Why we got into teaching in the first place.

Education is about sparking fires, not filling buckets. We all need guidance to keep us on track, remind us of our strengths and why we do what we do and to ensure we’re all in this together, going in the same direction and beating the same drum.

: Fact not fiction

Techniques that work

During your keynote your team will enjoy strategies and cognitive frameworks that work in the real world. Not a death by power point stream of data. Informed techniques that are proven to work. It goes way beyond a ‘traditional’ keynote and is part rock concert – part academic adventure. Tied up with engaging true stories that build rapport with your teachers and ensure the messages are heard and acted upon.

: We’re in this together

Picture this…

Your team walk out of the keynote with a spring in their step. Reinvigorated with new ideas, new concepts and new techniques, itching to put them into practice. Your key messages have been listened to, engaged with and explored. Now you have an empowered team of educators chomping at the bit to crack on and inspire their students with a renewed passion for delivering high impact educational experiences.

“Our session with Andy was absolutely fantastic all the teachers have come out energized! The most impactful techniques for me were the use of movement and vocalization to drive energy, invigorate and transform a child’s mindset into a positive one. I think this training will make a massive difference to young people and particularly those that could be facing mental health challenges, If you have the chance you should definitely do this training not only will it help the children it will help you too!”
