Imagine being paralyzed, and having the strength and determination to come back from this, learning to walk again as an adult - twice. Your business team will learn powerful transformational motivation and ‘can-do’ attitudes from Gina Gardiner story.
“Your motivational speech was inspirational and well received as usual, and at the end of the day several members commented on how 'spot on' and knowledgeable you are. One lady told me that, after listening to you yesterday, she felt as though she had received the proverbial 'rocket', which had re-energised her commitment to business development. We were all very grateful for your time and energy at yesterday's meeting, and would highly recommend your services.”

Read more about Gina Gardiner
Gina Gardiner is a powerfully inspirational person who suffered a terrible skiing accident at age 29, which meant she was paralysed down one side of her body. This incident led to many physical challenges that would have seen many other’s accepting that they must be confined permanently to a wheelchair and living a highly restricted lifestyle. The prognosis was not good. But Gina is not a person who accepts what she is told!
Through the many years since her accident Gina has continued to deal with significant pain and physical issues, but she believes passionately that every problem has a solution. The trick is to have a positive mind-set and see every challenge as excellent opportunity to learn and push forward.
For certain, Gina’s determination and unwillingness to accept the dire prognosis of her doctors is the core reason why she was able to run a large U.K. primary-school, receiving multiple awards and accolades for the quality of education, all the while suffering from the aftereffects of her accident. But her professional success is also due to her pragmatic and empowering leadership style, which enabled her to build a skilled and highly motivated team. Under her stewardship, they were able to make the school one of the first prestigious ‘Beacon Schools’ in the country and appear twice on the “Best 100 Schools” list during her tenure. An achievement that few fully ‘able-bodied’ professionals are able to achieve!
Since taking early retirement from the world of education, Gina has not rested easy!

She also runs a collaborative online membership coaching organisation that is designed to help individuals benefit from Gina’s considerable expertise and motivational approaches.

Our Sixth Formers are now much better equipped not only to secure the all important first interview, but also to ensure that they make the most of their induction period in order to achieve promotion.”
