Apollo Underwriting

Thank you for your time yesterday, I have received some really positive feedback today from your session yesterday and we have today sent out the recording of the session to the whole company along with all the information you sent over yesterday. That was a moving and inspiring story as you have clearly turned your life around and it touched a lot of our staff. Yesterday was one of our highest number of attendees for our lunch and learns which is fantastic. It clearly shows the importance of your message and I am delighted you got it across to such a wide audience.

Patrick Foster’s story is compelling and important. He holds every audience – whether younger pupils, sixth formers or parents – spellbound with the power of the message he conveys. Gambling addiction, and indeed all forms of addiction, are a very real risk for the pupils in our care. I think that we have made great strides in forewarning them and giving them protective factors through hearing his message. Top-notch INSET and PSHE, and a charming person to meet and have around the school for a day.

The personal story had a huge impact on all pupils and staff who listened to him, and this topic needs to be at the forefront of all PHSE programmes

Our daughter was absolutely blown away by his honesty and said that you could hear a pin drop during the talk and everyone was incredibly impressed and full of admiration for him. Such a sobering subject that they all walked out and talked about it for hours afterwards and felt they had learnt so much.
