WELCOME TO THE HEART OF LEADERSHIP, A CONFERENCE FOR EDUCATIONAL LEADERS TO BE HELD IN HOBART, 2015.

Our theme attempts to capture some of the complex dimensions of leadership which can become lost in the day to day urgency of principalship.

In particular, we are looking to emphasise the characteristics of trust, integrity, relational skills and how we as leaders create cultures in which individuals can flourish.

Our intention is that conference sessions should synthesise these characteristics and reflect the theme of 'heart'.

We have developed an experiential conference in which we hope emotional connection with the programme themes will feature as importantly as cognitive engagement. Our focus is to provide strong stimuli for conversation, collaboration and imagining the widest scope of leadership.

We want the Conference to be a learning experience in the fullest totality of that word. To do this, the pedagogy of the Conference will be predominantly 'Arts' based and our invitation to participants is to experience and enjoy!

Speakers include
Professor Pedro Noguera
Dr. Bob Brown
Dr Simon Longstaff
Brendan Spillane
