Students Ask Questions – Cameron Parker – For those of you who follow me on social media; I recently put out a few ‘Snapchats’ & Instagram stories asking people if they have any questions because I will be doing a Q&A video. I was actually very surprised of how many messages I received and I am grateful for everyone single one of them! Before I continue with the blog watch ‘Students Ask Questions – Cameron Parker’ below:
I had a 3 day road trip ahead of me inspiring in schools all around the UK and I brought my camera team from Gagetline with me to film the whole thing. On the first day; we were both full of energy and I wanted to film as much as possible.
That is the reason I put on my social media pages that I intended to do a Q&A and I am really happy I did because now it holds us both accountable to actually film and produce some quality content.
‘Accountability’ was the key word there; in all honesty the first and second day was incredibly busy, we didn’t get back and settled in the hotel until late, and the last thing I really wanted to do, despite my rugged good looks, was stick my face in a camera and talk – again!
But this was the only opportunity we had – so we grabbed it; we filmed it after 22:00 and, as you can see, energy levels were running low but we managed to get the job done. Everyone always expects a motivational speaker to be full of energy and positivity all the time, it’s not reality.
People relate to me because I am honest and keep it real with the people who listen to me. Therefore I think it’s important to show every aspect of my everyday life.

You can tell the success of a speaker within 5 minutes. This reduces to the first 1 minute when the audience are young people. They either get the students attention or they don’t. Of those that manage to capture their attention, few manage to keep it, especially for 60 minutes. Cameron achieved both.
