Great leaders have a bias for action.

They recognise that taking action provides opportunity for faster learning and represents deliberate movement towards a purposeful goal. Audacious actors don’t wait for the perfect solution, or to develop a foolproof plan, they dream and then do something about it. When there is a choice, choose action over inaction.

Take "Audacious Action" at The School Leadership Conference 2022.

Creating a Thriving Challenge Culture – Getting Beyond "Nice"

We often struggle with moving out of a place of "nice" or "stuck" to a dynamic, robust environment where challenging the status quo and deeply reflecting on our own practice is the norm. This dynamism creates a buzz of forward momentum and shift.

Engage in a masterclass that will give you practical and actionable steps to lift the culture in your school to a place of deep and authentic collective efficacy. Participants will receive access to the Buzz Diagnostic, a whole school aggregated report on how your staff see the Collaborative Learning Culture at your school, as well as a special QASSP access opportunity to The Buzz Academy.


9:00 AM - 3:00 PM
Optional Experience | Inner City School Visits

The John Cochran Lecture | Dylan Alcott, Award-Winning Athlete

Dylan Alcott is a dual sport athlete and the youngest ever wheelchair basketball gold medallist. Impressively, he has represented Australia in wheelchair basketball and wheelchair tennis since the age of 13.

Born with a tumour wrapped around his spinal cord and without the use of his legs, Dylan was able to beat the odds and achieve more than the doctors ever thought he would, becoming one of Australia's most recognisable and successful Paralympians. Dylan is a firm believer in the idea that you have to buy a ticket to win the raffle, and tells stories of the importance of pushing yourself outside of your comfort zone in order to achieve your dreams.
