Taking risks in education – how to drive change and promote innovation


Within this session Steve will talk about how, outside of education, organisations approach taking risks and innovating to enable driving meaningful change. Steve will relate these lessons to the education sector and provide practical examples of how schools can build their approaches around innovative practice that many other leaders would deem to be too risky. There will be a clear focus on mapping out strategic risk in order to ensure that when change and innovation take place they are given the best chance to succeed and grow. Throughout the session Steve will be advocating a non conformist approach to education.

Across two days, over 250 sessions will take place at the Festival. A full timetable of sessions will be available from late May 2019. Until this point we will only be announcing the day(s) sessions will be taking place.
