POSTPONED: Inspiring Leadership Conference 2020

This event has been postponed until further notice.

Inspire yourself, inspire your school
4-5th June, Birmingham

When you sit on a plane and watch the presentation from the flight team, you are instructed to ensure, in the hopefully unlikely event of emergency, you put your own oxygen mask on first. It may be drastic circumstances and even school leadership may not reach such a full-blown emergency, but it is a powerful symbolic reminder to all of us that we need to focus on ourselves first to keep our inspiration, optimism and resilience high. Being an inspired and confident leader in schools has never been more important – whether it’s galvanising and motivating pressured and time-stretched staff, reaching out to and engaging with children, parents and families or explaining where your school might be on its journey to any external agency (including your own Trust or LA). We know we are going through a period of diminished resource and greater challenges and how school leaders act and respond in this climate is so important. This is why we choose ‘Inspire Yourself, Inspire Your School’ as the theme for our conference.

This will be Inspiring Leadership’s seventh conference. Our theme, ‘Inspire Yourself, Inspire Your School’ has, in itself, inspired our programme selection and will included those from both outside and within the school systems. It will include keynote addresses and workshops, using the same formula which proved so popular. You will hear from truly inspiring leaders sharing their experiences and telling their stories. We hope you’re able to head from the conference inspired to lead your school even better and to greater impact.

This conference will give leaders at all levels within schools, the opportunity to come together and hear from the best speakers and to be inspired by leaders within and beyond schools. There will be plenty of opportunities to network and learn from fellow participants.

We look forward to welcoming you to Birmingham, in June, 2020.

Rob Campbell, Member of NAHT National Executive
