Inspiring excellence in education

It’s back… Save the date! 4 – 5 June 2020

Inspire Yourself : Inspire Your School

Already in its sixth year, and with a high percentage of delegates returning each year, Inspiring Leadership covers real depth and breadth, with topics spanning innovation, leadership, partnership, development and technology. The Seventh Inspiring Leadership Conference will return on 4 - 5 June 2020, to the ICC, Birmingham.

Why Are We Doing This?

Inspiring Leadership 2020 returns with an exciting itinerary of over 30 keynote, masterclass and workshop sessions led by the best and brightest from different sectors, all looking to provide a fresh perspective on leadership.

Benefits

This is the perfect opportunity for senior leaders to meet their peer group, share experiences and exchanges views and ideas to take back to the workplace. Delegates also have unrivalled access to updates on technology, products and services to improve their work environment via the extensive exhibition.

What People Say

“Inspiring Leadership is a ‘must do’ in my diary and has been for many years. I have encouraged all my headteachers to attend the conference, it’s not just about the speakers and the content it’s about the people you meet…”

LOOK WHO’S TALKING…

Our keynote speakers come with a wealth of stories; some have found their lives under fire and yet flourished, some have successfully challenged the status quo against all odds and others have changed lives through the smallest of actions. All, however, are inspiring. In a year where major challenges facing the sector are as pressing as ever, learn new ways to approach challenges from other leading thinkers, take away fresh approaches to try out and find new supportive colleagues from schools around the UK and internationally *.

* In 2018 delegates attended from Australia, New Zealand, South Africa, Singapore and Switzerland.

Conference dinner – An evening with Gyles Brandreth

The conference dinner in 2019 will be an evening with a difference. A departure from our traditional formal gala dinner ‘An evening with’ is a fusion of the formal and informal; an evening that combines food, entertainment and socialising. Retaining the glamour and quality of the evening we seek to broaden the appeal of the event making it more attractive to a wider cross section of guests.

We are delighted to have secured the services of Gyles Brandreth, writer, broadcaster, former MP and Lord Commissioner of the Treasury, now Chancellor of the University of Chester and one of Britain's most sought-after speakers. A veteran of QI and Have I Got News For You, a reporter on The One Show and a regular on Just a Minute. If you’ve experienced Gyles before you’ll want to see him again and if not, you are promised a rare treat.

Tickets for the conference dinner are £65 + VAT when booking your place on to the conference.

MASTERCLASS AND WORKSHOP SESSIONS

Inspiring Leadership is the only conference of its type in the education sector; nowhere else will you find such a diversity of leadership speakers chosen for their value to you, combined with the opportunity to work hard with your peer group on the issues that challenge you. On leaving Inspiring Leadership, we believe you will not only be feeling refreshed and energised, but be walking away with improvement plans formulating, new supportive contacts made, and a reminder of the difference your leadership can make.

SPONSORS AND EXHIBITORS

Why sponsor and exhibit at Inspiring Leadership…

Inspiring Leadership is an annual conference and exhibition showcase that excels in all that it does. The conference is already known for its positive, thought provoking and ultimately inspiring ambience, giving delegates time and space to learn, reflect and plan.

Now in its sixth year, it has built a reputation as one of the most inspirational and influential events in the education calendar. Each year around 60% of delegates from previous years attend, the majority of which are Headteachers, Principals and CEO’S.

As an exhibitor or sponsor at this event you’ll have access to over 1,300 leaders of primary and secondary schools, academies and early years’ settings - all important decision makers, keen to find practical ideas and solutions for implementing change and driving improvement in their organisations.

To maximise the opportunities for both exhibitors and delegates alike we’ve allowed ample networking time and longer breaks so that there is more time to talk, to meet as well as discuss and explore developing business relationships.

Flexible options for you and your company.

Sponsoring or exhibiting at Inspiring Leadership gives you a unique opportunity to raise your company profile and access this influential audience of leaders.

We offer a flexible range of options designed to suit your business needs and your budget, whether you’re:

• Simply looking for an opportunity to showcase your products and services
• Would like to demonstrate how your company is working with schools and others to innovate and transform education
• Wanting to connect with some of the really key individuals driving and shaping leadership for children

Bookings for 2020 will be open soon and we’d be happy to discuss your ideas on how you’d like to get involved.

Please email Jenny at exhibition@inspiringleadership.org to discuss further.
