About the Speakers

Wendy Smith

Wendy describes herself as a ‘helper’. She spends the majority of her time helping others discover the potential that all people hold within themselves. Through teaching awareness of self, people are able to uncover their limitations and discover how to drive themselves towards successful outcomes. 

She works in many different arena’s including banks, public service sector, education, sports and mental health services. 

Wendy received an Essex Achievement Award for achievements over adversity. 

Qualified as a Level 3 Basketball Coach, Basketball Tutor, Sports Psychologist, Sports Massage Therapist, EFT Advanced Practitioner, Trainer of Spectrum Emotional Therapy and is a NLP Master & Trainer, she has many tools and years of experience in Personal Development and Emotional Intelligence. 

A Trainer and Business Coach by profession, Wendy runs workshops and Practitioner Courses based around human potential. She enjoys sharing knowledge that can help people reach that next level of performance. 

She has a Therapeutic arm to her business that allows her to work with people who are stuck in life, maybe through trauma, PTSD, abuse, phobia’s or debilitating experiences and cannot find a way to move forward. Wendy uses re-coding techniques to release these states and assist people in moving on without being re-triggered. 

Something that fulfills Wendy deeply is working in schools with small groups and individuals helping reset their belief systems and allow them to then function in school and life. Her experience in this arena comes from her own journey throughout the schooling system where she was herself labelled as a ‘problem child’, this knowledge enables her to understand and connect with the children she works with. She believes there is not a ‘bad’ child on this planet, just faulty programming. Working 1-1 allows her to help free children from the patterns and beliefs they hold which create the negative behaviours they run. 

All of the above became possible through a series events that began with a high-speed motorbike accident in 1989 and the prognosis that she would never walk again. It was at this point that Wendy began her own journey into the power of the mind, the belief systems we hold and the positive or negative effect that they have on our behaviours. She has spent over 20 years studying neurology, self management and personal development/philosophy to physically help herself recover and to create the business she has now and the ability to share real experience with people to help them overcome daily adversity which allows them to become resilient in life. 

She has one goal in life... to run again! 

Gavin Damant

Gavin has over 10 years experience working in the Police Force. He works with a disciplined structured approach and believes awareness is the key to success in life. Gavin has spent many years training others in all disciplines from martial arts to personal development. High performance coaching is his specialty. 

Gavin became seriously involved in the mindset game when he was diagnosed with Chronic Fatigue Syndrome in his late 20’s. He was told by the medical profession that it would be near impossible for him to continue his career and that he would experience great bouts of fatigue that would wipe him out daily. The doctors said he would now have to manage his energy expenditure if he was going to live a balanced life. Gavin decided that this prognosis was not for him and decided to research cures. He discovered John Eaton who works with reversing such conditions and he booked an appointment straight away. Within 6 months Gavin was totally clear from CFS and living a perfectly normal life. He actually found that through the reverse therapy model he had created a good motivating mindset and wondered how he could help others do the same. 

He studied NLP and Spectrum Emotional Coaching as well as reading up on neurology, personal development and psychology. This lead Gavin into the space of becoming a Training Provider and Personal Coach. He works with individuals and groups helping create the mind set for success. Truly believing that success is an ‘inside job’ he runs workshops raising awareness, creating ownership which then leads to massive personal change. His aim is to take as many people past their previous limitations and help them experience their true potential in life.

Pioneering Change is a collaboration of passionate and driven trainers/coaches who want to help others achieve success in their lives and businesses.

Pioneering Change is driven by experienced and qualified training and coaching specialists. We provide both professional courses to the private and public sector and one-to-one coaching sessions for individuals from all backgrounds. 
The former is aimed at improving and developing the way people perform as part of a team, whether in the workplace or anywhere else where results matter. The latter is a holistic process aimed at helping people improve their personal performance. 
The courses we deliver achieve this by creating a fun and thought-provoking environment, with material bespoke to their requirements, and with a focus on generating excellent results through recognising the importance of developing each individual, and the team as a whole, maximising potential and creating their own lasting success. 
The one-to-one coaching we deliver achieves transformational change because it addresses the biological, psychological and social aspects of the individual, and recognises how their attitude or 'state' is the critical component of performance and that means as emotional awareness is created they identify their own powerful resources and can make better choices. 
Both the coaching and training harness the methodology and techniques contained within 'Spectrum', Neuro Linguistic Programming (NLP) and other useful psychological systems, including brain-friendly learning.

Your trainers for the day will be:

Gavin Damant has over 20 years experience in Policing and High Performance Training.

Wendy Smith is a former Paralympian and has 25 years experience in Mindset, Personal Development, Self Mangement and High Performance Training.
