The World has changed. Now it is time for education to catch up.

Educational Leaders must be at the forefront of this innovation agenda.

  • Kia ora Simon
    Brilliant presentation and exactly in the same thought space as I am in - I have been inspired by the book 'Surfing the Edge of Chaos' by Richard Pascale etc which applied many of the same ideas to business - I agree whole heartedly with you that we now need to promote the same level of innovation in reconfiguring the social architecture of our education system!
