Conference Presentation Outlines and Speaker Biographies

Conference Information

This year we are privileged to have the entertaining and passionate Maggie Dent as our Keynote Presenter. Her Keynote Address - "The Importance of Silence, Stillness and Calmness in Children's Lives" - will make you come away eager to try out different ideas on how to calm children in your classroom after the holidays. In her Masterclass - "Really Surviving Teaching" - she will examine the role of stressors, teach how to develop protective factors and explore ways to de-stress and relax to deal with the unique challenges of our teaching profession.

We have five other Masterclass Presentations this year and as a result of the delegate feedback from last year, two of them will be held in the Lunch-Time Session. All of the presenters are well respected in their field of expertise and are consummate presenters. We also have another 28 workshops to choose from. Please find below the Conference Date Claimer which we would ask you to distribute through your networks to other colleagues.

Last year there was no price increase to Conference Registration. However, due to increased catering and other costs there will be a slight increase this year but still below the cost of other similiar one day Conferences.
