So far, the workshop has been successfully implemented and adopted by over 600 UK schools, colleges and universities with measurably improved results. It is also used as a business training tool in companies worldwide.
Goal Mapping gives students the boost they need to step up to the demands of the next level of education or, indeed, the step up from education into the workplace. It helps them gain clarity on what their ambitions are, what they need to achieve and how they are going to get there. Using a unique goal-setting tool students will set targets for themselves that are challenging enough to excite and realistic enough to achieve.
The workshop lasts for two hours for up to 100 students per session. Longer, more in-depth sessions can be arranged for smaller group sizes. Each participant will receive a set of resources and will have on-line, post-course access to further support.
Learning how to set goals is a vitally important skill that allows individuals to take immediate ownership of, and to develop a sense of responsibility for, their own future. It is an invaluable life skill used at the highest levels in business and sport worldwide.
Students are taught how to organise their thoughts and eliminate self-limiting beliefs to clearly identify their ambitions. They are shown how to set challenging but realistic goals for themselves and to clearly identify the pathways to success. Critically, they develop the ability to take each goal and break it down into time relevant, manageable and measureable chunks. This engenders a very positive ‘can-do’ attitude, helps to reduce stress and provides a clear map of the routes to success.
Visual Goal templates make excellent review material and afford students the opportunity to chart their progress to personal success.

The workshop was beneficial as a means of focusing the learners on their longer term goals. In general, the learners attending were those studying practical subjects, and typical comments are ‘It’s too early to think about what I might be doing in a few years’ time, I just want to be trained and get a job’. The workshop was therefore very useful to help them think a bit more about what they want to achieve and, importantly, their motivations. This kind of workshop therefore helps to raise aspirations and can improve an individual’s resilience and determination to achieve goals. Shenaz was a brilliant presenter. She engaged so well with the students and staff present, and worked very hard to enthuse and inspire. It was a challenging audience, and she managed them well, getting learners involved and engaged. The planning discussion we had before the session really helped too, we changed the layout and allocated staff to tables to be facilitators of activities – this worked really well. The first workshop delivered by the previous presenter (not Shenaz) suffered from not having this discussion beforehand, meaning that we weren’t as well prepared and weren’t able to best meet out learners’ needs.
Very good workshops, presenter (Natalie) interacted well with the pupils. The day went very well, thought the pupils took a lot from the day and hopefully remember a lot of the techniques used
Excellent presenter, content engaging and interesting – students were very positive about the session.
We recently had Shenaz from Positively MAD come in to deliver a session called 'Goal Mapping' to our Year 12 students. We were delighted with the session and the students excitedly described it as "the best tutorial we've ever had". Shenaz did an amazing job at inspiring the students, engaging everyone in the room and making the session personal and relatable. The students learned techniques that will support them through their A-Level study and encourage them to aim high. We would recommend this workshop without reservation.
The course was really well structured and allowed students to focus in on clear and simple techniques that they can take away and use in their A Level studies. The Goal Mapping session fitted well with the earlier Bridging the Gap session to provide some excellent ideas to students that they can use. The overall feeling from both students and the staff present was very positive. Rachel was excellent – well prepared, knowledgeable, with a relax, yet purposeful style – an excellent presenter. She was also able to hold the students’ attention for the whole session (no mean feat with 100 students for 4 hours!!).
I just wanted to send a quick email to thank you again for your help yesterday. I asked the students what they thought of the online sessions and it's very rare that we get such positive feedback, especially for the non-academic stuff like we covered yesterday, so I really did want to share and thank you for your support. Thanks again,
I attended a workshop last night at my sons school, run by Vicki. Fabulously inspirational, I am truly inspired. I am a 36 year old mother of three and am just starting a college course myself after last studying 20 years ago, I will take on board everything i saw and learnt and will utilise it throughout my study’s and the rest of my life. Vicki was a breath of fresh air and her energy will stay with me for a very long time. A big Thank you Helen
