To excite and inspire young people

20 years ago, businessman Matt Watson was invited to deliver a careers talk to students at a Derby school.

Teaching staff were amazed at how he managed to connect with, inspire and interest their disaffected students. For Matt’s part, he thoroughly enjoyed the experience and wondered how he might be able to motivate a larger number of young people.

Matt became passionate about transforming the provision of work-related learning in schools and this inspired him to form Bright Futures Experience with the mission ‘to excite and inspire students to learn’.

Drawing on his business, design and communication experience, he set about creating a set of imaginative workshops with energetic delivery methods and exciting, real-world activities at their heart.

Since then Bright Futures Experience has inspired over half a million young people to make things happen and realise their potential through self-discovery and tenacity. Our workshops help students to develop essential life skills and build the self-confidence they need to grab opportunities with both hands.

Our team of professional presenters are passionate, enthusiastic, inspirational people, who deliver motivational workshops in schools throughout the UK. They have a wealth of personal experience gained from running their own businesses and deliver workshops to a consistently high standard. As entrepreneurs themselves, they draw from their own first-hand experiences to bring each activity to life and give students a taste of the real working world.

We want young people to have brighter futures by taking control of their own lives.
