Inspiring Leadership Conference 2020

Inspiring Leadership
Inspire Yourself : Inspire Your School
4-5 June, ICC Birmingham
Inspire yourself, inspire your school
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 chose ‘Inspire Yourself, Inspire Your School’ as the theme for our 2020 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.                 

Each year, over 1,300 head teachers and senior leaders of education come together to listen to the awe-inspiring stories from the world of business, sport, the arts and of course, education. They leave feeling refreshed, energised and truly inspired, armed with new ways in which they can continue to make a difference by applying their leadership skills.

As well as a unique line up of internationally renowned speakers each sharing their leadership stories and experiences, this event brings together over 60 exhibiting commercial organisations to help make sourcing new products and services for your school much easier and the opportunity to take away ready-made tools and techniques for implementation back at the workplace with our masterclass and workshop programme.

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.

“Inspiring Leadership is a ‘must do’ in my diary and has been for many years. I have encouraged all my headteachers to attend the conference, it’s not just about the speakers and the content it’s about the people you meet…”
