Type Of Speaker


“Rob Higgs is definitely one of the best speakers we’ve ever had. The way he held the students’
attention was extraordinary, and his opening 15 minute performance was mesmerising
and profoundly moving on so many different levels. The students were transfixed. The
presentation that followed was wonderfully informative and had tremendous pace. The
role play which involved two of our students proved particularly popular and was
managed brilliantly by Rob. He gave us an afternoon to remember, and we can’t wait to
have him back again!”

Kendal Mills, Senior Master, Stamford School.

“Rob Higgs has been delivering his drama presentation on Anti-Bullying to year 9
pupils for the last two years at Oundle School. His delivery is unique and engaging so the
pupils are immediately able to identify with the message he is putting across. His honest
and wide ranging approach appeals to this age group and they quickly involve
themselves in the presentation, volunteering to take part and asking pertinent questions
without embarrassment. The feedback from the pupils is always extremely positive and it
facilitates valuable discussions far beyond the presentation as well as providing a
platform for further work on this very important issue. He will certainly be invited back!”

Marianne Smith, Head of PSHE, Oundle School

“A thought provoking and engaging presentation that hits the mark. The right balance of
humour and gravitas that keeps the discussion rolling long after the event.”

Jon Ricketts, Senior Deputy Head, The King’s School, Worcester.
