Calling all Educators/ Education Service providers and products

Are you interested in promoting your educational products or services at a workshop geared towards parents who want to support their children to thrive in school?

If so, then this is the workshop for you!!


Why you should exhibit at Start the Year Right

Exhibiting at STYR is a very productive and effective avenue available for educators and education service providers to reach and network with intentional parents who want to improve their children’s lives through better education.


Having a presence at this event will provide you with the opportunity to put your business / product or service directly in front of parents and also other like-minded educators or education service providers who are eager to buy from or even partner with you.  


Research upon research has shown that exhibiting at trade events and workshops are the most cost effective ways to advertise to a target market and create brand awareness, leads and greater sales.


By exhibiting at STYR you will:


  • Meet potential leads for your business face-to-face
  • Put your business / product / service in front of those who have already come with an interest in education and are therefore ‘ready to buy’
  • Generate brand awareness of your product or services
  • Make fruitful, long lasting business relationships
  • Network, generate leads, make sales and future contacts


This is all for only £50.

In 2018, our guest speaker was Lucy Parsons. She’s an Academic Coach and empowers ambitious students to get the top grades in their exams and into their first choice of university.

Lucy shared how from a very young age, she decided she wanted to study at Cambridge University and how she motivated herself to get there. She didn’t know how it was going to happen, as she was an ordinary state-school girl without the advantages of a student at a top private school!

What she knew was that she’d have to get exceptionally good grades!

She shared her secrets to helping your child get academic success at the STYR Parents Workshop Event!

In 2017, we invited Sulette Synman, an expert, to speak to the parents on how to maximise their children’s learning ability and concentration. All the parents gave a positive feedback about how it greatly helped them.

Shola Alabi gave tools and tips on starting the school year right and how to finish strong. She demonstrated to the parents some planning techniques that helped them get organized, set goals, measured progress and reduced stress.
