Making Generation R Talks

Talks for First Responders and Frontline Services

One of the most effective ways to encourage resilience is through inspiration from others who have overcome difficulties in their lives.

That’s why the Making Generation R campaign supports injured veterans to take their inspiring stories about overcoming adversity to workplaces and educational centres across the UK, including First Responders and Frontline Services.

Empowering veterans

All veterans who deliver their story have taken part in an intensive 5-day training course delivered by West End theatre professionals and public speaking trainers who help them to structure their personal stories of disaster and triumph in an engaging way before they go out and share them with the workshop recipients.
