I use my experiences as a professional footballer and writer to teach the power of resilience and inspire reluctant readers.
More recently, I've worked with some of the world's biggest YouTubers to tell their stories.
My books cover a broad spectrum. I've ghostwritten and edited non-fiction football and YouTube books, while also authoring children's books on football.
Because of this, I've got extensive experience of talking to audiences of between five and 300 in primary and secondary schools, universities, and businesses.
I've also appeared multiple times on live television and national radio to discuss my books, most notably on the BBC and TalkSport.
I'm most comfortable either giving talks on resilience, careers in sports or my own experiences as a footballer and writer. I also run workshops on ghostwriting (giving pupils tips before asking them to ghostwrite each others' autobiographies), creative writing and persuasive writing, which is a key part of my role as an ambassador for Loughborough University's school outreach programme.
However, I'm always willing to step out of my comfort zone and try something new - both in terms of writing and speaking.
Described by The Daily Mirror as 'a captivating tale', The Boy in Brazil has been used as a set text to teach English and humanities in several schools, with one even giving an exam on it for their year 8 class. The topic also naturally lends itself to sport and has seen me lead PE lessons. Football's Coming Out has also been used by schools to discuss homophobia in football, as well as helping to spark an advertising campaign for a leading sports brand.
I am currently based in Stamford but am willing to travel anywhere in the UK and abroad. My usual fee is in line with the Society of Author's recommendations.
'Seth has been kind enough to visit my school twice. On both occasions he has captured pupils' imagination and interest. He speaks brilliantly and is able to engage youngsters. They wanted to know more and ask questions. It was fabulous from the perspective of teaching them about Brazil. However, Seth went further in inspiring the pupils to think out of the box and have ambitions - both from the football angle and also in writing a book. I would have Seth in again without any hesitation.' Nene Park Academy, Peterborough
'Seth has always remained punctual and professional - preparing any work to deadline - but, most importantly, he is a really personable character with an inspiring story that manages to truly capture students' imaginations.' Loughborough University
Brilliant day, and the students who took part really enjoyed themselves.
Seth joined us for two days at three campuses. Over the course of both days, Seth led an online assembly, delivered several writing workshops, and judged a competition we had been running as part of our World Book Day celebrations. Seth was professional and flexible, and his delivery was pitched perfectly to meet the needs of our pupils. Pupils engaged well with him and enjoyed asking a variety of questions. We would highly recommend Seth to other schools.
