The Good, the Bad and the Ugly: Learning from Business

Cognita Venue 3

3:20 pm - 4:00 pm



What can education learn from business? Should we even try? In October 2015, Chris Jansen was appointed Chief Executive of global schools group Cognita after 20+ years in the corporate world. Following top roles for the AA, Centrica, British Airways and Procter & Gamble, education marked a major career shift. Three years on, Chris shares insights from his experience leading positive change in what is often regarded as two opposing worlds. He challenges myths held on both sides and in so doing poses his own challenge for education leaders today.
