Leadership: Passion, Pizzazz and Possibilities


Published on

This keynote focuses on the importance of leadership in education as a place of possibilities. We live in complex times and need to be able to navigate successfully in two ways. The first is to be passionate about our leadership - caring, curious and courageous. The second is to be focused on the future, stretching beyond boundaries, collaborating and networking.

Cheryl will take you to the world of possibilities, stretching your thinking, extending your vocab and challenging your neurons. She will share some global leadership trends and her observations as a Christchurch resident and leader. She will make connections back to the realities of education in your environment and provide you with three practical next steps in your leadership.
