Description

Highly sought after and world-renowned speaker, Sir John Jones, will explore a groundbreaking set of forward thinking methodologies. These will include an in depth analysis of the current changing world, the demands such ongoing global adjustments will result in, and the impact they will have in the greater scheme of things for young peoples' learning.

Sir John will get to the heart of the topic at hand, exploring the reasons behind people’s resistance to change, going on to scrutinize the array of myths that surround the education system. In addition, he will reveal to his audience how to transfer focus to our own paradigm shifts that occur within our individual thought processes, and how to effectively embrace a positive adjustment in mindset and outlook.

He will draw inspiration from his best-selling book: “The Magic-Weaving Business – Finding the Heart of Learning and Teaching”. He will explore the secrets behind a great teacher, and how they think, say and do. He will also focus on school leaders, and the qualities they possess that make them such great members of their institution.
 
This is a day not to be missed!
