"I believe that each of us should have the same chance to build a life we are proud to live, regardless of our past experiences."

- Tomasz Drybala

Driven by a passion for creating global change, I offer a wide range of seminars, courses, workshops and keynote speeches for charities and nonprofit organisations in the United Kingdom, Europe, Arabia, Asia and the United States.

My mission is to reach a billion people with my message and support those experiencing childhood traumas and the organisations that help them.

I support UNICEF to keep children safe with a primary focus on child protection and education. During the Flow Up Global ultra run (40,075 kilometres), we will conduct over 100 philanthropic events to raise funds and provide humanitarian and developmental aid to children worldwide.

Currently, we are raising funds for the UNICEF Ukraine Response #RunnersForUNICEF.

As the Wave Trust's Ambassador, I support the British group of the World Health Organisation (WHO) European Healthy Cities Network for Trauma-Informed Prevention of Adverse Childhood Experiences.

In the UK, we are working to reduce child abuse, neglect and other adverse childhood experiences (ACEs) by at least 70% before 2030. We call this goal the 70/30 Campaign. Together, we are building trauma-informed societies.


How UNICEF UK is helping children in Ukraine.

UNICEF UK has been working tirelessly to keep children safe since this conflict began eight years ago and is determined to remain in Ukraine to reach the most vulnerable children and families.

UNICEF UK is working closely with their UN partners in Poland, Moldova, Belarus, Romania, Slovakia, Hungary and the Czech Republic to help provide humanitarian support for children and families fleeing the war. UNICEF UK support includes, but it's not limited to:

  • Providing access to clean water and nutritious food for over 3.5 million people in affected areas.
  • Providing over 3 million women and children with access to primary healthcare.
  • Providing over 260,000 children with educational supplies to keep them learning.
  • Working with local governments and the UNHCR, UNICEF UK has created 25 Blue Dot safe spaces for children and women. Each Blue Dot has the capacity to provide support to 3,000–5,000 people per day. These Blue Dots provides key information for displaced families, psychosocial support, safe spaces for mothers and children, and protection for unaccompanied and separated children.
  • UNICEF UK partners with Warsaw and Krakow municipalities as they aim to support 800,000 children from Ukraine to access education and learning opportunities.

The impact of WAVE Trust's work:

Across the UK and internationally, Wave Trust have been influencing and catalysing change at many levels. Wave Trust work with all political parties, local champions, people on the front line and decision-makers because child abuse and neglect is everyone's business. Wave Trust's impact includes, but is not limited to:

  • Wave's work is used internationally by UNICEF in Asia and Europe and by healthcare experts (e.g. Italy, Australia, Iceland).
  • WAVE is an active member of the World Health Organisation's (WHO) Violence Prevention Alliance and is coordinating the British group of the WHO European Healthy Cities Network for Trauma-Informed Prevention of Adverse Childhood Experiences.
  • Training multi-agency professionals to work in a Trauma-Informed way to achieve large scale impact (using best practices and the latest science).
  • Brought preventive programmes (Family-Nurse Partnership and Roots of Empathy) to the UK which have benefitted over 80,000 children and families.
  • Established multi-nation, cross-sector workshops for senior decision-makers across the UK and Republic of Ireland, training them on child development and trauma, and solutions for prevention of ACEs.
