Don't miss this opportunity to hear from one of the most inspirational leaders of our time, Richard Gerver. Joining us from across the pond in the UK, Richard will share highlights with us from his latest book, Education: A Manifesto for Change. This call to arms will inspire all those involved in education to consider how our school system can be made fit for purpose in our turbulent 21st-century world. Renowned educationalist, Richard Gerver, argues that educators must work together to find innovative, creative strategies to prepare students for lives ahead of them and to teach them skills and knowledge that will be valuable far beyond formal education. Schools must collaborate with people and organizations beyond their normal experiences, so they can be the catalysts of a better, more connected and more coherent future for today's children - tomorrow's adults.

With unique insights from global figures, including Barack Obama and Steve Wozniak, perspectives from elite sports coaches, and international examples, this book is an empowering, optimistic vision for a new year forward for educators everywhere.
