Connecting schools with relatable role models
Nothing inspires aspiration like relatable role models. With an experience they can recognise, young people believe they themselves can succeed. And that’s our aim, to encourage self-belief within pupils at your school by introducing them to inspirational speakers who will motivate them to achieve great things.
Arrange a guest speaker
The city isn’t short of inspirational people, so if you’re looking for a speaker for your careers programme or to provide an inspiring assembly, let us know.
Mobilise your alumni network
Students who are successful after leaving your school are the perfect template for others. Their time with you makes them relatable to those you currently teach. Plus, they can offer life advice that’s specific to their local community.
Our role is to help you create this network, giving your school a story of achievement and camaraderie that lasts long after a pupil leaves.
What schools we work with say
State Talking has been really beneficial in helping us connect with outside speakers. We are always looking for different ways to inspire our pupils and enhance their careers education and State Talking has played a really important part in ensuring quality provision.
St James RC High School, Cheadle Hulme
We have found State Talking talks very beneficial to the school since they have opened our students’ eyes to the world beyond St Matthew’s. We often speak to them about becoming the ‘best version of themselves’ and the talks are a great example of explaining to them first-hand how they can achieve this.
