Keynote Speakers

Lizzy Yarnold

We're extremely excited to welcome winter olympian, twice gold medalist, Lizzy Yarnold OBE to The Education People Show this year.  

Kent born and raised, Lizzy has been working with schools to encourage healthy role models for young people, in particular, Lizzy feels very strongly that she wants to use her success on the track to help young girls feel better about their body shapes and to take up more sport and activity.  Since her Olympic win Lizzy has visited over 50 schools across the country spreading that message.

Session Details - Getting Tough: Building Resilience in the Next Generation

After her sensational wins at the 2014 & 2018 Winter Olympics, Lizzy Yarnold captured the hearts and imagination of the British Public, as the humble young woman from Kent who never gave up on her dreams and with frightening determination reached the pinnacle of a thrilling and often dangerous sport: the Skeleton Bobsleigh.

Using her experiences from the world of elite sport and having studied ‘Mental Toughness’ at University, Lizzy will talk about education’s role in developing essential life skills such as personal resilience, self-awareness and an ability to work towards specific objectives - and the impact of these important character traits on young people’s ability to reach their full potential.
