About the speaker
Hello, I’m Kathy Weston – academic, motivational speaker, wife and mother to two boys.
My aim is to help young people to flourish. Combining my passion for parenting with my extensive academic expertise, I am committed to giving schools and parents the practical tools they need to bridge the gap between educational and family life.
About Keystone Aspire www.keystone-aspire.com
I firmly believe we should inspire young people to aim high. That is why I founded Keystone Aspire – to help aspirational teachers, parents, and young people to achieve their full potential. I do this by sharing relevant research on topics such as parental engagement and aspirational parenting, in a straightforward and thought-provoking way. I’m thrilled to already have helped countless people with my motivational talks, parenting course and 1:1 mentoring sessions.
My doctorate in criminology gives me a unique insight into psychology, sociology and medical anthropology, all of which underpin my work in parenting and behavioural change. Eight years as a research fellow within Higher Education has also developed my interest in parental engagement and its impact on children’s lives..not to mention my full-time job as a mum!
I’ve spent over half a decade co-producing a weekly radio show for parents on Radio Verulam 92.6FM, where I have been lucky enough to interview some of the biggest names in the world of education and parenting.
I am a regular contributor to the Huffington Post and am a trained Parentzone Digital parenting facilitator.
