Description

My next one will be at Buckland Commuity Cenre and lets see if we can bet my last attendence. If you live in Portsmouth then you can claim a free ticket.

Who is this talk for?

This talk is for anyone who believes life will never change, this is for anyone who feels its everyone elses fault that there life is as it is.

So who am I?

My name is Gethin Jones and I am now an Inspirational Speaker, Trainer and Coach and have created a business called “Gethin Jones Unlocking Potential”. My motto is “I unlocked my potential, now let me unlock yours”. The story is one of my own transformation that I now want to share with others who may be trapped in services, systems and believe they will never achieve more than they have…

Take a moment to read my story…

I was born in Portsmouth and Social Care were present from birth. They were in my life due to historic family situations that were out of my control. I was a ‘happy go -lucky’ child but inside I felt lost, I was not a bad child but I was and unable to deal with my emotions and this expressed itself through negative behaviour.

Before long I was beyond parental control and I was eventually taken into care, this led to many placements including secure units and a huge amount of Police involvement. I have an extensive criminal record and my first conviction was at 12 years old and my first custodial sentence was at the age of 14. My lifestyle and choices catapulted my life in to a pattern of self-destruction which included spending 8 years of my life behind a prison wall, a dependence on drugs and destroying all my personal relationships.

Hear how, 10 years ago, I started on a journey of change that has led me to being both personally and professionally successful:

  1. I went from being unemployable to being a Service Manager within Portsmouth City Council and Public Health, overseeing a staff team of 40.

  2. I went from having no qualifications to now being educated to degree level equivalent.

  3. I went from being totally isolated to having amazing family and friends in my life and I can support them as much as they support me.
