A Chat with Domestic Abuse Survivor, Inspirational Speaker Andrew Pain.
9th Sep 2021
Domestic Violence Isn’t Gendered – a Keynote
As a long-term survivor of domestic abuse in his former marriage, Andrew Painknows only too well the impact of domestic abuse on performance at work: from the extraordinary levels of sick leave to the excessive and lengthy personal phone calls each day, and falling asleep on the phone to his clients mid-way through the conversation due to sheer exhaustion!
Andrew is keen to highlight that domestic abuse isn’t gendered – that men can also suffer from abusive partners…
Watch Andrew’s TEDx Talk below –
On leaving the abusive relationship, Andrew undertook life coaching and youth impact coaching qualifications, simply to become a better dad (he had no intention of becoming a professional coach or speaker) but once he explored the world of coaching, he never looked back.
Within 18 months, he’d set up his own coaching business, delivering stress management, influencing and time management programmes for his clients.
At Great British Speakers, Andrew delivers 5 thought-provoking and insightful keynote sessions for busy leaders who want to be more effective in their roles and more efficient with their time.
