Education Conference

02 December 2015

Our annual Education Conference for independent schools will be held on Wednesday 2 December at The Tithe Barn, Loseley Park near Guildford. The conference is aimed at the School's SLT, the Governing Body and any person involved in HR.

Our guest speakers this year are Professor Joe Nellis and Sir John Jones. Joe is Professor of Global Economy and Director: Policy Sustainability & Performance Community at Cranfield School of Management. He will consider the drivers of change in the 21st century and comment on the challenges and opportunties for Generation Z. Sir John will enlighten us on the skills we will all need to thrive, namely creativity, ingenuity, portability and flexibility. He will describe how teachers of great imagination, who are passionately commited to the relentless pursuit of excellence, will make a difference to the children in their care.

Members of our team will cover some topical issues. There will be ample time to ask questions and to speak informally to our guest speakers and to members of our team.

The conference will close at 1:00pm and be followed by lunch.
