Sport and Business students were among those treated to an inspiring speech from Adam Lewis Walker on Tuesday 13 November here at Coulsdon Sixth Form College.
Adam is the author of ‘Awaken Your Alpha – Tales and Tactics to Thrive’ and is the host of the top ranked podcast ‘Awaken Your Alpha’. As a former teacher he commanded the room with students listening intently to his journey.
He spoke of his struggles while he was an international pole-vaulter when a freak accident in 2008 cut short his Olympic dreams. On crutches for about 2 years afterwards, he built himself back up and did compete again. Using a no-nonsense approach to health, family and leadership, Adam now helps others reach their full potential.
Head of Sport and Public Services Jason Gentles commented, “It’s important students hear from speakers who’ve experienced struggles so they know there is a way out. Adam’s talk was inspiring and very motivating. We are grateful he was able to visit during his busy schedule.”
