Anthony Inspires New Line Learning
On June 18th New Line Learning Academy welcomed Anthony Bennett, an inspirational speaker who came in to deliver motivational speaking sessions to our pupils.
Anthony began his motivation speaking career with Great Ormond Street Hospital Children’s Charity, securing a £7.5m charity partnership to fund a brand new wing at the children's hospital.
From that point on, Anthony has been travelling the globe delivering powerful speeches to many different audiences and industries; his latest audience being New Line Learning Academy pupils.
Hopefully, Anthony's speeches opened up the mind's of our young people, giving them inspiration to push themselves and achieve their goals.
We would like to thank Anthony for taking the time to come in and talk to our pupils. It was a pleasure meeting you.
When the motivational speaker came in, he told us about his story. How he had been taken to hospital for serious medical help and how he got resuscitated 12 times. This was really sad for all of us as it started from a school trip to Disneyland. During his time at hospital, they found out he had three really dangerous illnesses and was about to give up. Amazingly, he survived and didn't stop fighting. He set up his own charity called Anthony Inspires. After that, he was invited to share his story with the world. His words were "if you say no, nothing changes, but if you say yes, amazing things can happen". He helped us not to give up and still carry on. - Amelia Appleton
