My guest on Episode 12 of Confidence Conversation, the last in this series, is the inspiring Kate Harris who is the Founder and CEO of VotesForSchools.

This is a great conversation about confidence as Kate is possibly the most resilient person I know which I think naturally gives you confidence when you feel like you have nothing left in your tank.

We chat about lots of confidence things including visiting the bank manager in flipflops, and how the foundations of confidence can mean you either have a mansion on those foundations or you have a crumbling bungalow.

Kate began her teaching career in 2000 and very quickly found a passion for Citizenship, PSHE, and student voice.

Kate left teaching in 2014 to follow her dream of finding a way to support schools in developing SMSC & British Values, making it engaging to children and young people, and getting students to discuss the biggest issues affecting them today. Kate's Citizenship teaching days also developed her desire to see young people becoming more involved in democracy and voting.

Kate co-founded VotesforSchools which enables any teacher regardless of subject or experience to feel confident to discuss tricky subjects and then vote, VotesforSchools takes this voting data and uses it to inform influential people and groups about what young people think and feel about a variety of political issues.

I met Rob back in 2017 in the corporate world. I wanted him to join me on the podcast as he's someone I think of as naturally confident, so I knew it would be great to get his views on confidence and how he keeps his in check.
Give this one a listen, we talk about all-sorts of things obviously confidence related. It was so interesting for me to hear Rob talk about how his confidence is strongest when he's coming out of adversity and that what a rainy day meant 2 years ago now means something completely different. Knowing that lots of Rob's clients a Yapster are in the retail & hospitality industry I knew his business would be rocked to the core by COVID.
Rob Liddiard is co-founder CEO of Yapster, a mobile communication platform used by frontline organisations such as Next plc, Vision Express, Caffe Nero, Krispy Kreme, Marston's plc and many more.

A company lawyer (practising in London and Shanghai) previously, Rob co-founded Yapster in 2015 to provide organisations with largely 'offline' workforces a secure, inclusive and GDPR-compliant alternative to unofficial use of WhatsApp at work.

Over the past 6 years, Rob has become a specialist in the emerging field of Social Leadership, working with industry leaders to align and inspire hard-to-reach colleagues.
