Victoria Griffiths, healthcare specialist and author visits London Churchill College (LCC). (30th January 2017)
HND Health and Social Care students attended a lecture on 30th January 2017 from experienced professional Victoria Awele Griffith. As founder and CEO of Spectacular Woman networking platform, as well as the author of Unshakeable You: A Journey of Resilience, Self-discovery and Healing from Domestic Violence, Griffith was the an ideal guest lecturer for the Professional and Personal Development unit lead by lecturer Tina Poyzer. The lecture covered evaluating personal effectiveness in promoting and supporting the rights of the individual and ways to resolve issues encountered in professional relationships.
Tina’s invitation of Griffith was partly motivated by the guest’s depth of experience as social policy teacher and now speaker who runs a company empowering women going through social and personal challenges.
“We’re looking at professionalism and partnership and how to be the best you can be [while] working to promote the rights of people using the services” states Tina. “Victoria has been both a service user and professional who the students can really connect with. They feel inspired and empowered by how personal stories can shape their own professionalism in the future.”
Through lectures, open discussion of personal stories, and short exercises, Griffith gave Health and Social Care students an enlightening and empowering session. “The beauty of teaching and learning can only produce one outcome, and that is to empower the learner to reach their highest potential as they go into the chosen field of work”, said Griffith. The lectures concluded with a book signing of Griffith’s latest release.
Guest lecturers in the curriculum inspire our students and stretch their aspirations by their professionalism and personal stories. Students learn from these and from the behaviours and attributes the speakers demonstrate.
