Jermaine Harris

Jermaine Harris

Creating 'HAPPY' Children

It took a major car accident – and then one year later nearly having his leg amputated – to turn Jermaine Harris’ life around. Prior to this, Jermaine had been living a self-destructive lifestyle of excessive drinking, gambling and womanizing. At times, he drank as many as 24 bottles of wine and vodka per week, was in nightclubs 6 nights of the week, and was £30,000+ in debt.

When firemen cut him from the wreckage of a car, it shook him up momentarily as he thought he’d never walk again. But it was a football accident a year later – when he was told, “You may have to lose your leg” – that finally convinced him to change his life.

Since then, Jermaine, who has a Sports Psychology BSc (Hons) and MSc (Dist), has read over 380 self-help books in the space of 4 years and left behind his destructive lifestyle. In this time; Jermaine lost a stone of Body Fat, put on 10 Pounds of Muscle, cured himself of asthma, ran a Half Marathon and the London Marathon, started a Business, wrote a book, became an award winning speaker, met the woman of his dreams and is now a father.

Jermaine now works as an Empowerment Speaker and Trainer, helping children and adults with their mindset, confidence, happiness, motivation and more. Overcoming further adversity, Jermaine is a keen fundraiser for the Cystic Fibrosis Trust after his son was diagnosed with the condition at 4 weeks old in 2015.

Jermaine, who is based in Cardiff, has condensed his experience and wisdom into his book ‘THE RUT BUSTER: The Secrets to Taking Control of Your Body, Money, Career and Life’ . Soon to be followed by 'THE LITTLE BOOK OF H.A.P.P.I.N.E.S.S. - Self Development for Children'.

Testimonials from Teachers

“It was a great way to start the first assembly of a new term with a motivational speaker of Jermaine’s calibre. He has a presence about him and got the pupils engaged immediately. He was inspirational, full of energy and has a real passion for his work!This was the talk of the school for the day from both pupils and staff who attended the inspirational talk!”

– Matt Todd, 6th Form Pastoral Manager, Radyr Comprehensive School​

“The level of positive energy that Jermaine was able to unleash in the children was actually new challenge for the teachers as their minds had been opened to a whole new ‘zest for life’. The children absolutely loved Jermaine and were chanting his name and giving three cheers at the end of the session. That says it all.”

– Catherine Ogle, Head of School, Reepham Primary​

“I introduced Jermaine to the children as someone who was going to bring some ‘Positive Vibes’ to our assembly and he did that and even more. You really can sense his positivity and how much he loves sharing it with the children. The way he relates his ideas to the young people is very clever and they found it all so fun.”

– Kay Swann, Headteacher, Cawston Primary​​
