Sreela Banerjee is Co-Founder of the Life Skills Institute, a non-profit charity based in the UK. Its remit is teaching core skills to pre-adults that better prepare them for excelling in future professional work and life. Awareness/attention training and education in better understanding individual human spirit, form the foundation of the Institute’s curriculum. “If you develop a habit of ‘watching out’ and bringing your mind back to what you want to think or do, that helps to reduce stress, as well as increase productivity. ‘It is just like exercising and developing a physical muscle.”
Banerjee has an undergraduate degree from the London School of Economics – Joint honors in Economics and Economic History – and an MBA from Cass Business School. She was inspired to form the Life Skills Institute after a thirty year career that included consultancy positions in engineering, financial services, education and private management spanning multiple countries.

This fact highlighted for Banerjee and her colleagues the critical need for forming The Life Skills Institute.

There nobody knows you. Chances are you need to learn a new language, learn a new public transport system, find out where the shops are and how to read the labels, find out about school, try to make yourself understood … so there is a lot of disruption, your kids can feel shunted around (so can you!) and its hard to keep going. It puts lots of pressure on everyone.” . Currently studying for an MSc in psychology, Cutler has found Family Coaching a perfect way to support families in thriving amidst these multiple challenges and transitions.

Babajide Bayo-Yusuf is CEO and Founder of Tangtracker, a free online safety android app that permits parents to track and monitor several online activities carried by their children through their smartphone. Also an IT consultant, Bayo-Yusuf’s passion for improving digital safety was ignited in 2013.
It began with a growing concern for the increased risk children face in the digital age and frustration with existing security measures. “The question I asked myself was, ‘Do I have to wait until something happens to a family member before I act?’. He decided no and began researching how parents could use smartphone technology to better protect their children. This journey resulted in him creating Tangtracker. Bayo-Yusuf lives in the UK with his wife and infant son. He enjoys football, horse riding and brainstorming means Tangtracker can be improved.
Alan Wilson is the creator of “The Parent Champion” and “The Ethos of Empowerment” programmes. Core to each is the prioritization of culture and connection over content. Wilson’s path to becoming a Life Skills Empowerment Coach was anything but conventional. He began his professional career in advertising, then experienced a cascade of professional and personal trials – bankruptcy, nervous breakdown, divorce. These “catastrophic” events inspired renewed consideration of his life purpose and delivered him to a greater appreciation of spirituality and energy. “In 2002 I learned there was potential for a deeper level of connection beyond what is conventionally described by sensory-awareness and active listening – an energetic connection that delivers powerful positive personal transformation when respected and proactively cultivated.”
Wilson blended this awareness with the human applicability of an advertising concept on which he trained fellow professionals – USP (Unique Selling Point). The combination proved surprisingly powerful when he began volunteer work with teens. Children normally deemed “difficult” or worse began thriving under Wilson’s tutelage. This unanticipated success motivated Wilson to write a variety of programmes culminating in The Parent Champion program in 2010. The essential message is when parents/teachers feel comfortable within themselves children are freer and more comfortable being themselves. The Ethos of Empowerment programme, launched in a Special Education Needs school in October 2012, expands the concept and supports teachers, staff, students and parents in creating a culture of empowerment in schools.

Personal Care Skills Panel
Niamh Hannan, Diana Dentinger, Ilene Dillon, Babajide Bayo-Yusef, Sreela Banerjee, Luison Lassala
Personal Care forms the foundation from which other Life Skills develop. Tragically, it frequently ranks last on lists of priorities in modern societies. Personal Care Thought Leaders inspire the reframe by being the first panel to present at P20 Talks 2014.
Organizational Skills Panel
Rosalind Cutler, Niki Williams, Edwina Neely, Marlaine Cover, Joanna Fortune
Organizational skills are core to the optimal functioning of every individual. Unfortunately, the educational process is most frequently defined by dictates and punishments. Organizational Thought Leaders facilitate a paradigm shift by providing new perspectives and methodologies for proactive education.
Respect for Self and Others Skills Panel
Annie Chisambo, Amelia Lambert, Blanca Vergara, Irene J. Murray, Elizabeth Douet
With the world ever more intimately woven, problems in one geographical region immediately impact also others. Respect for Self and Others Thought Leaders expand existing expectations to create a brighter, more prosperous and amicable future for all persons.
Communication Skills Panel
Elly Taylor, Diane Speier, Vivien Sabel, Jane Evans, Karen Shaw, Alan Wilson
It is widely estimated that over ninety percent of human communication is non-verbal. The spoken word, however, dominates focus in daily conversations and media headlines. Crisis management guides education and further impairs popular dialogue by flooding it with medical terminology. Communication Thought Leaders provide a much warranted redirect and reconnect.
Social Skills Panel
Bill Neely, Naomi Richards, Deborah McNelis, Vaughn Lauer, Reeta Passi
Efforts to superimpose homogeneity upon the diversity of humanity are at the root of most human suffering. Social Skills Thought Leaders emphasize why embracing education that respects innate intelligence and integrates differences is one of the most important Life Skills human beings can collectively commit to refining in the Twenty-First Century.
