Inspiring people through personal experience. Helping others see the potential they hold within.
Since 2012 I have been delivering keynote speeches and motivational talks to groups and organisations throughout the UK and Europe. The main aim is to help raise people's self awareness and empower them with tools and techniques to live life on purpose.
Overcoming adversity has been a bit of a life theme for me and by sharing my story and knowledge people get to look at circumstances through a different lense and gain an alternative perspective. For just over 30 years I have consistently strived to improve my physical and mental state following a serious RTA which left me with challenging mobility issues. It really has not been an easy ride and every day presents a new set of obstacles to overcome.
Learning to regulate my thoughts, utilise and appreciate my emotional states, reset my belief systems and take back control of my human system have been some of the most painful and joyful experiences of my journey so far. Knowing that everything is an inside job means that anybody can learn how to control stress, motivate themselves and retrain their brain. It's not easy, takes practice and commitment but the rewards are immense.
Thought creates everything and when people learn how to regulate and utilise this powerful process, they can generate massive change in their environment. Owning how you show up in your space and understanding other people's unique maps of reality can really improve how individuals & teams function.
The true power in life comes from owning who you are and what you do, it comes from taking responsibility for what you bring to the table and not blaming your experiences on other people. To become that powerful authentic self you have to strip back the layers or pre-programming, ego, judgement and bias and move back from the head to the heart.
As a speaker I have had the privilege to speak alongside Lord Seb Coe & Dr David Hemery C.B.E and also share knowledge and experiences to thousands of people in schools, the health & wellness sector, conferences and global corporations which include:
BACP (British Association of Counselling & Psychotherapy)
Everybody has gone through the same experience of being programmed by their environment and this can lead to some people never stepping out and shining their light because the limiting beliefs always hold them back. I love taking people on a journey of waking up to the program and challenging the aspects of self that are stopping them reaching for the stars.
“Wendy Smith attended a prestigious and highly sensitive ceremony held in recognition of the outstanding achievements made by vulnerable young people in the capacity of a special guest. In the presence of other dignitaries she presented herself as a model of professionalism yet inspiration through her personable demeanour and motivating words.
She demonstrated flexibility in her communication, motivation through her emotive expressions and encouragement in her empath". Kashif Nawaz, LAC Awards Organiser.

Her talk was awe inspiring and each and every one of our delegates was gripped by her story and came away realising that we can all achieve amazing things if we put our minds to it.
