From Teacher to (Thought) Leader – what’s in it for you?!

Grzegorz Śpiewak


This is not about a set of new tricks, for you to take straight into your classroom. Nor is it about tried-and-tested activities or practical ideas. So, only come along if you feel you really need to sit back, pause, and think about what it is that you actually want to achieve, short and long term, how you wish to impact on those around you, and what you’d like to leave behind.
