Ross has been involved in educating children, young adults and senior professionals for over 30 years, has visited over 1,000 schools, colleges and universities, and has probably changed the lives of one million people. In this time, Ross has developed not only his knowledge, but crucially, the way he tries to understand and engage with audiences.
Beyond this acquired professionalism, Ross has felt the real sadness of his own academic, health and life challenges. This has been borne out with him failing all his qualifications at school, going through acne face and body scarring, incurring disability and experiencing the devastating deaths of both his parents. It was a result of this devastation, of losing his ‘life mentors,’ that he decided to create a legacy to honour them both.
This started in 2017, when he released the CUPPA Book Series. This legacy of helping children reach their full potential in life, has been further bolstered now in 2019, with the release of Katy Cupsworth. Belief in oneself, and reaching for your potential in life is a precious gift that Ross’s parents gave to him, but which wasn’t fully appreciated by Ross until they had left him.
