Building Futures Conference

by Robyn Fletcher | Sep 10, 2015 | Blog, Education

The DRB Ignite team will be hosting the fifth Building Futures conference on 16th and 17th September at the Birmingham NEC, and the Learning Escape are looking forward to running an exhibition stand in the event’s Marketplace. DRB have a reputation for combining vision, passion and pragmatism to inspire delegates, who will include many head teachers, governors and senior leaders in education, and Matt would love to meet as many of you as possible next week.

The subheading of this year’s conference is “Leading Today for the World Tomorrow” and the programme has been designed to clearly illustrate the power of leadership to transform young lives. The guest speakers are set to take delegates on a journey to provide insight into the most effective leadership behaviours; to instil the inspiration to “be the change”, and to take back new thinking to their schools and enhance the life chances of their learning and wider communities.

Guest speakers will include Dame Dana Ross-Wawrzynski, Chair of the Head Teacher Standards Review; Vic Goddard, star of Educating Essex and, from New York, Geoffrey Canada who has been responsible for transforming the life chances of the Harlem community by revitalising education and family values.

Delegates are being actively encouraged to visit all the carefully selected exhibition stands, so pop along to let Matt stamp your card and take a look at how our eco-classrooms can help you create inspirational learning spaces at your school.

Once the day is done in Birmingham, he’ll be packing up and heading off to Newport ready to set himself up at the Harper Adams University, where we will be exhibiting at the Sustainability West Midlands event, Growing up Green and Global. This specialised one-day educational conference and exhibition for the West Midlands will be focusing on sustainability and global education.

The day is targeted at an audience with a specific interest in environmental and global education matters and in helping young people to become 21st Century citizens with a social and moral conscience. There will be a number of speakers and exhibitors, including the Learning Escape, who will guide delegates to discover new ways to ignite and engage pupils’ passion for the environment and create the future ambassadors for the change the world needs.
