Strategic Solutions team up with memory mastermind David Thomas for South West educational tour
Posted on: 16/09/2021
With the success of Strategic Solutions’ 2019 education tour, the financial planners are gearing up for a second round of tours, targeting four more state schools in Bournemouth and Poole.
The company are continuing to team up with former firefighter-turned world memory record holder David Thomas, who successfully memorised and recited the mathematical formula Pi to 22,500 places. He is also a world memory championships medallist and a Sunday Times bestselling author. In 2019 Strategic Solutions funded David Thomas visits to five state schools on the south coast and coached over 6,000 students on how to train their mind using powerful techniques to improve speed, retention, concentration and comprehension when studying for exams.
‘My greatest desire is to help students achieve their true potential,’ David Thomas explains.
‘Showing them how to pass their exams is a great start as it maximises their opportunities once they leave school. Strategic Solutions staff share my philosophy and have invested their own hard-earned cash to help make this roadshow happen. Thousands of children will now get access to life changing information through me that they otherwise would not have.‘
The four day tour kicks off with David speaking at Lytchett Manor School in Poole. He will then move to The Oak Academy and LeAF Studio in Bournemouth before making a final stop at Winton School.
The mission is driven by Strategic Solutions’ Community Foundation, which is chaired by Jeff Steninger. His current committee consists of Abigail Stidworthy, Russell Tonks, Allan Cruse,
Rachael Martin, Rob Silk, Dean Robertson, Lindsay Arnold, Kelly Roberts and Zoe Avery.
Every year the foundation offers Advisers at Strategic Solutions a voluntary scheme to give up part of their gross income to contribute to the fund, which in turn is matched by Strategic Solutions. Recent projects include supporting the Dorset Deaf Children’s Society, The Dorset Wildlife trust and other education projects such as this one involving David Thomas.
