A MESSAGE FROM KAMAL
“My aim is simple, I want to inspire and motivate young people to believe in themselves, raise their standards and aim a little bit higher!”
“WHOOP WHOOP!!!!!!!!!!! Sound the alarm....... Kamal was absolutely brilliant. Not enough adjectives to describe how wonderful Kamal was. I really wanted to email you yesterday but could not get back to the computer as the students were asking sooo many questions. I truly believe that he has made a huge impact on our students and it will be interesting to see how they are over the next couple of weeks. All the staff in the room(Many who did not have to be there) were impressed with this young gentleman. You must be very proud of him and I will be spreading the word. I know in years to come when they talk about great people that they will mention Kamal's name and I will be proud to say I knew him too. PLEASE,PLEASE pass on this email to him and all concerned. Hopefully we will work with you again.
Kind regards, A very happy Jen.” – Jennie Christie – Heartlands Academy
Kamal did an outstanding job on Friday with our Y11 students. Had comments from staff who did not see the presentation that the students were buzzing!! Also staff took the time at the end to thank Kamal for his input. I still can’t get over he is only 19!! He was so confident in his delivery! I am sure that we will look to use your organisation again in the future. – Mike Smith - Deputy Head Teacher, The Phoenix Collegiate
“Kamal’s presentation went brilliantly and was thoroughly enjoyed by both the staff and the students. I would definitely recommend him to others and would have him back again to present to students in the future. Kamal pitched his presentation appropriately for the age of the students and kept them engaged through out. Teachers who attended the seminar also commented that the presentation was insightful and delivered in a fun informative exciting way. I personally found Kamal to be organised, well presented and a great motivator to the BTEC cohort here”
