Inspiring Leadership

The Inspiring Leadership virtual conference package offers school leaders the chance to attend as an individual, with colleagues or as a leadership team.

The Inspiring Leadership Conference is the only conference of its type in the education sector. Nowhere else will you find such diversity of leadership speakers chosen not just for their leadership credentials but also for their ability to engage and inspire us to think carefully and deeply about what we do and why we do what we do.

Every year many school leaders send us their feedback on the annual leadership conference. The most frequently used words include; reflect, refresh, re-focus and realign.

Time is also often mentioned. Time away from school to slow down, time with colleagues and time to be inspired.

Taking time to invest in yourself is an investment in your leadership and your school.

Keynote speakers 

Our World class leadership speakers for 2021 feature a look into the future transformational potential of technology; how individuals respond in the face of a crisis; leading the delivery of the London 2012 Olympic and Paralympic games and what a concert orchestra conductor really does and what it means for you.

Insight library

Complementing our keynote sessions is a select group of expert practitioners who will provide a library of content on a range of themes and topics including Leadership Presence; Diversity and Inclusion; Community Engagement; Crisis Management; Mental Wellbeing and Remote Learning. 

More sessions are currently being developed and all will be pre-recorded and made available online during and after the conference.  

Sponsors and exhibitors marketplace

Featuring new and established brands from the education sector supply chain combine to create a rich mix of supplies, services and innovation to take back to your schools.

The on-site marketplace at the Utilita Arena Birmingham will largely be replicated online enabling delegates to engage either in-person or online with new and existing suppliers.  

Why should you attend?

This is the perfect opportunity for senior leaders to meet their peer group, share experiences and exchanges views and ideas to take back to the workplace. Delegates also have unrivalled access to updates on technology, products and services to improve their work environment via the extensive exhibition.

Look who's talking...

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, learn new ways to approach challenges from other leading thinkers, take away fresh approaches to try out and find new supportive colleagues from schools around the UK and internationally.
