How to start 4: The 2005 Conference

Being asked to organise and chair the first real National Education Conference where stakeholder feedback was sought exceeded all expectations - the 750 invited guests actually became over 800 for the opening event, prior to the splitting into detailed workshops. All government teachers and school staff were present along with representatives from: Education Department, Schools'Inspectorate, pre schools, the tertiary sector, private schools, local businesses, parents, past students, media and the community
To see so many people wanting to be there to help make a difference was just fantastic! The two day conference was incredibly hard work but one of the most professionally rewarding experiences I have had in my life!
