Following the success of last year’s Milton Keynes Leadership Development Conference we are delighted to invite you to attend our 2nd Annual Conference. This year we focus on the theme of ‘Inspiring Leadership in Challenging Times’ and are excited to be bringing inspirational speakers from across the country and from within Milton Keynes to bring a rich national and local perspective.


Our main keynote speaker is Mick Waters who has consistently been a down-to-earth voice in the increasingly complex world of education. Professor Mick Waters is President of the Curriculum Foundation and formerly Director of Curriculum at QCA. He has regularly endeared himself to school communities in the UK and overseas by talking the sort of sense they need to hear – practical, challenging, inspiring, insightful, engaging. His unique perspective, closeness to the classroom and ability to see innovation in terms of its impact on learners mean his views are always worth listening to. With wry reflections, humorous insights, astute asides and simple ideas to change the system – and the future – for young people everywhere, he is very skilled at communicating across the primary and secondary phases. It is exciting to have him here in Milton Keynes!


Our afternoon keynote speaker is Stephen Tierney, Executive Headteacher of St. Mary’s Catholic College and Christ the King Catholic Primary School, Blackpool – known to 1,000’s on twitter as Leading Learner.


The day will also include the opportunity to attend 4 workshops to maximise your engagement with our speakers. Delegates will be asked to select 2 from option A and 2 from option B.
