Intro

Energy, enthusiasm and self-reflection. When it comes to these 3 things, you could say Gavin is an expert. He’s a six-time author, keynote speaker, Managing Director and owner of Tree of Knowledge, working with brands such as Nike, NHS, Shell, British Gas and more.

Gavin kicked off his career on the comedy scene, gigging across the world and creating bonkers sketches with his friends. With a Fringe award in his back pocket, he married up his love of comedy with his teacher training, and has been delivering inspirational talks and events with Tree of Knowledge since 2004, later leading a management buy-out in 2009. Since then, he’s inspired tens of thousands of school children across Scotland and the UK and continues to share his story about the definition of ‘making it’, managing anxiety and making the most of the journey along the way.
