Great leaders have a bias for action.

They recognise that in taking action there is opportunity for faster learning and deliberate movement towards a purposeful goal. Audacious actors don’t wait for the perfect solution, or to develop a foolproof plan, they dream and then do something about it. When there is a choice, choose action over inaction.

Take "Audacious Action" at The School Leadership Conference 2022.

Creating a Thriving Challenge Culture – Getting Beyond "Nice"

We often struggle with moving out of a place of "nice" or "stuck" to a dynamic, robust environment where challenging the status quo and deeply reflecting on our own practice is the norm. This dynamism creates a buzz of forward momentum and shift.

Engage in a masterclass that will give you practical and actionable steps to lift the culture in your school to a place of deep and authentic collective efficacy. Participants will receive access to the Buzz Diagnostic, a whole school aggregated report on how your staff see the Collaborative Learning Culture at your school, as well as a special QASSP access opportunity to The Buzz Academy.

This event is also available to non-conference attendeesLimited Seats Left

The John Cochran Lecture | Gill Hicks, Bombing Survivor & Peace Advocate

Gill Hicks lost both her legs from below the knee as a result of the London terrorist bombings on 7 July 2005. Since that day Gill has been determined to make her life count – to really make a difference for world peace. And make a difference she has. She uses her experience to do all she can to deter anyone from following a path of violent action. She is a firm believer that we all have the strength and ability to make a difference and to create a world that is peaceful.

Gill founded the not-for-profit organisation M.A.D. for Peace, a platform that connects people globally and encourages “Peace” to be thought of as a verb, an audacious goal, as it’s something that we have an individual responsibility to “do” every day.
