Imagine if ALL young people grew up knowing they could 'make a difference' for a better world using their unique talents. 

Currently 'leadership' development is only an expectation of young people for young people in some private schools (ISI Framework), not consistently in state schools (no mention in Ofsted). 

Can you help a young person?

1) 'Making A Difference' Musicals
Helen works with both adults and children to create simple musicals about 'making a difference' with others.  Over time, they begin to model the skills of self-empowerment through factual or fictional stories. When performed using music, the stories become more powerful, both in effect and in growing confidence. 

Using her experience and skills in education, music and psychology (NLP Master Practitioner, Leadership Coach, Language and Behaviour (LAB) Profile Trainer) Helen works with adults and children in 'writing a musical' workshops to model some of the skills and processes necessary to child young people aspire, achieve and 'make a difference' in the world. She worked for over 30 years experience as Primary Teacher, Headteacher, School Improvement and Ofsted. Now with her band I-Sister, she particularly enjoys writing and performing musicals about women who helped change the world. See  'Musicals', 'Past Projects' and 'About Helen.'
