After Jackney and I did our first motivational talk to over 100 year 13 students at The Bryanston School, we were delighted to have received some brilliant feedback! Here is the feedback that I received...
I would just like to thank both you and jack for your incredibly inspirational talks at Bryanston on Saturday. I know I was one of many who sat in your talk trying my hardest to hold back the tears (and trust me I never cry) as you both shared such amazing, brave stories, stories that a lot of us would find hard to relate to, as we have been fortunate enough to live, work and grow up in 'the Bryanston bubble'.
I just wanted to let you both know the impact that both your talks had on me. I walked out feeling very lucky with what i have in life and it has definitely taught me to stop moaning and grumbling about petty little problems which in no way could really ever compare to what you two have faced.
You say on your blog that your aim is to help and inspire other people and you have definitely inspired me.
I hope you reach your dream of being a world champion kick boxer. Never give up."
"Hello, The talk you gave on Saturday was very inspirational to all of us. The mix of humor and emotion was entertaining and very motivating, achieving my aims suddenly became a much more plausible option! The whole thing about 'reaching your dreams' always seemed to me to be quite a clichéd expression, but when you hear about real people aiming high and doing extremely well with their pursuits, certainly made me realise that it is possible for me to do myself.I thoroughly enjoyed the talk and I shall keep up with you on your blogs.I wish you two the best of luck!"
I am in year 13 at Bryanston, and I wanted to thank you for the talk that you and Jack did last Saturday it was soooo good. It was really inspirational and I really enjoyed hearing your story.
I wish you the best for the future, and the Boxing!
Thank you so much!"
"Hi guys, Thank you so much for a very inspirational talk on Saturday.I found it thoroughly interesting, and it made me want to find my passion and reach my own goals.Our whole year found the talk very moving, and maybe we will see you back at school some time!I hope you both reach all the goals that you wish to achieve, and goodluck with the future!"
And finally here is a message which was sent to Jackney and forwarded to me...
"As for feedback, I would love to help in any way I can after your humbling talk, but sadly there is nothing constructive to say. You were an amazing speaker, as was Tyler. You were both very confident, very amiable and had fascinating things to tell, helped in the slightest by the amazing things you both have already done. I thought you were funny when you wanted to be, but altogether fantastic motivational speakers. I can promise you that everybody left the lecture theatre with a completely changed perspective.
Now your blogs are just as entertaining, Tyler, I have been lost for days scrolling down thought all the funny/thought provoking material you post, along with very funny photos.
The only criticism I could think of for your one Jackney, is that you haven't posted enough! What you have done, I loved and very much want more, you both write better than half our school.
Thank you both for coming and spending your Saturday with us, and providing such a humbling speech, and for both being so kind to us in your blogs."
Once again a massive thank you to all the students at Bryanston for making our day so brilliant!!
