You’re here because you work in higher education and you are passionate about seeing your students grow and flourish. But helping them to become confident, resilient leaders feels like an uphill struggle alongside all of the other plates you are spinning.
Take the stress out of your student development plans by booking training that does the job properly.
Fed up of death by powerpoint or tickbox training? So am I! I build interactive, self reflective and practical programmes that bridge the gap between knowing and doing so that your students can confidently apply the skills they need to succeed.
Every organisation has different goals and challenges – which is why I provide a bespoke training service that is designed around your needs.

I’m Gemma Perkins, a Personal Development Trainer.
As a teenager in 2006 I stumbled across a leadership training programme that changed my life. I went from an introverted outsider to a confident and driven educator.
Ever since, I’ve been working with organisations that support students. My mission is to equip other young people with the kinds of skills ‘they don’t teach you in school’ in order to help them become the confident, resilient and emotionally intelligent leaders that the world needs.
Book in a free 30 minute training consultation. On the call we’ll discuss your students skill development needs, some quick recommendations to support your planning and I will design you a no obligation training programme.
