We had the joyous time collaborating with Tom on our The V&A touring exhibitions team Away Day, December 2015. We literally needed to get creative as a team at 8am in the morning as we joined together to move 50 djembe drums from outside The Royal Opera House in his van to upstairs in the swiftest time as possible… creative thinking, team work (almost instantly) and lots of good humour came up with our creative solution… play the film

Every Child Needs a Mentor - Herman Stewart's global vision for change

Every Child Needs a Mentor – Herman Stewart’s global vision for change

Anna B. Sexton had the pleasure of supporting Herman Stewart with the bringing together of his top selling book ‘Every Child Needs A Mentor’. A book that champions the very heart of Herman’s vision with a call to all adults to consider the power of being a mentor and what can be done to give every child the start in life they deserve.  Herman is setting up mentoring schemes across the UK and would love to hear from you about potential partnerships www.hermanstewart.co.uk

Anna's insight into the human experience was remarkable which will go far in her mentoring capacity as she helps others.
