I'm a firm believer that telling stories about our lives is key to building understanding and gaining insight into each other's worlds.
Having worked in a wide variety of settings, and lived through some challenging chapters of my own life, I'm able to share stories of conflict and its resolution, of hope and its fulfilment, and of recovery from despair and disappointment.
I am passionate about the psychology of change, and I love to connect with audiences who are interested in making personal breakthroughs and helping others do the same.
I also enjoy speaking about what real leadership looks like, its potential impact on people and organisations, and how groups can work together more effectively and successfully.
Director of Family Services, Royal Borough of Kensington & Chelsea
In April 2022 we organised an in person full staff conference and invited Jeffrey Wotherspoon to attend as the keynote external speaker. Jeffrey’s session entitled ‘Let’s think and talk about racism together’, was delivered to a staff group of over 150 social work and social care staff. Jeffrey’s delivery was engaging, challenging, provocative and communicated in a style and manner that provided a safe space to talk and think about the effects and impact of the social injustice of racism and how we all have personal responsibility to address this both professionally and personally.
He provided some useful frameworks and techniques to help facilitate challenging conversations and captivated the large audience. The feedback that we received on his contributions were overwhelmingly positive and I would highly recommend Jeffrey who is able to engage such large audiences and create an atmosphere that can contain and hold varied life experiences and enable different perspectives and debate to flourish.
