Jay Gardner is better known for being a favourite on the MTV hit Show Geordie Shore. He rose to fame as an original cast member taking part in series 1,2,3,6 & 7 as well as appearing in a number of Geordie Shore specials. Before entering the world of bright lights and celebrities, Jay graduated from Northumbria University with a Quantity Surveying Degree, he then went on to complete a two year graduate programme. After being made redundant Jay saw an opportunity to take some time out and travel the world, it was during this time that he was introduced to Geordie Shore where he was introduced to a whole new world of reality TV.
As a main cast member of Geordie Shore, Jay has experienced what it’s like to take part in a main stream reality TV show with a major presence and reach across social media. Following this TV exposure and the associated social media presence, Jay is fully conversant with the pitfalls and often negative impact of social media. Jay is now taking this experience and motivating and teaching young children about the dangers of social media and how to stay safe across these platforms. With such a relevant and major issue for young adults in today’s society, Jay is passionate about providing the truth behind reality TV and social media. One of the main issues Jay will address in his speeches is the topic of fake and false imagery in social media. He feels that young adults try to emulate images that simply are not real. Jay will also speak about the issue of online bullying, advising children and young adults how to deal with “trolling” and how to stay safe. Jay also provides valuable advice on safety, building personal confidence and generally motivating young people to focus on what really matters in life.
Using his experience as a Quantity Surveyor, Jay would like to build a sizeable property portfolio over the next 15 years.
