Inspiring Leadership
Conference 2017

7 – 9 June ICC, Birmingham


Conference programme

A carefully curated event where education leaders get to tackle recurring issues anew, and take back to the workplace new thoughts and ideas to implement which deliver improvements.

Inspiring Leadership is the only conference of its type in the education sector; nowhere else will you find such a diversity of leadership speakers chosen for their value to you,  combined with the opportunity to work hard with your peer group on the issues that challenge you. On leaving Inspiring Leadership, we believe you will not only be feeling refreshed and energised, but be walking away with improvement plans formulating, new supportive contacts made, and a reminder of the difference your leadership can make.

The overall programme can be viewed here.

Our keynote speakers come with a wealth of stories; some have found their lives under fire and yet flourished, some have successfully challenged the status quo against all odds and others have changed lives through the smallest of actions. All however are inspiring. In a year where major challenges facing the sector are as pressing as ever, learning from other leading thinkers, ways in which you can approach challenges will help you leave with new methods of problem solving, new approaches to try out, and new supportive colleagues from schools around the country.

Our main stage sessions will be facilitated by Jane Creasy, an independent consultant with experience of educational leadership at school and national level, as well as other firm favourites such as Steve Munby at his final Inspiring Leadership as CEO of Education Development Trust.

Being mindful of the safety of their pupils and parental concerns, Music Junctions' participant schools have understandably decided to withdraw from their performance at the Inspiring Leadership Conference.
