Gavin Oattes

Part child, part David Bowie, Gavin is one of the most talented and sought-after Keynote Speakers on the planet. An award-winning entrepreneur, he’s somehow mastered the art of transporting audiences back to when they were five years old, a magical time filled with wonder and zero fear.

He has worked directly with over 1,000,000 young people in Scotland alone and is in high demand by organisations ranging from NIKE to the NHS. He also happens to be the bestselling author of SHINE, Diary of a Brilliant Kid and the current smash hit Life Will See You Now. His inspiration all comes from where he began his career...Primary School Teaching.

Gav will bring his honest, funny, and sometimes sweary approach to inspirational entrepreneurship and self-help for an event that will be a SURE cure for any lockdown blues.
