Local author Errol Lawson celebrates World Book Day at TGBS!

Local author, entrepreneur and leadership coach joined us at Turves Green Boy’s School on Thursday 7th March to promote reading for World Book Day. Errol, from a challenging background in inner city Birmingham, gave a series of talks for all pupils over the course of the day.

The talks reflected on his struggle to escape a life of gangs through reading and remaining focused. His key messages of taking responsibility for your actions and being courageous resonated with the boys. His powerful manner of sharing his experiences allowed the boys to think about their current and future actions.

We chose Errol Lawson, as an entrepreneur, to coincide with our wider work during Careers Week.

As well as giving talks about his books, a few selected pupils were chosen to take part in one of his workshops based on his book ‘teenpreneur’. Pupils heard a little about how Lawson set up his initial business before having a go at pitching themselves. The boys were nervous to begin with, however, each one found the courage to stand up and speak in public. Errol gave the boys the confidence to promote themselves positively and think about their futures.

Look out for more from our World Book Day celebrations.
