Berg has joined up with Dame Kathy August DBE to host an exclusive event, supported by
HCSS Education and
TheSchoolBus. The thought leadership summit takes place on the 4th February 2015 from 4pm until 6.30pm. Aimed at Academy Headteachers, Governors and Business Managers, it is a unique opportunity to bring together current leaders in the academy landscape
with other experts in the field.
The event provides an invaluable opportunity to consider the practical steps your leadership and governance team can take to ensure that they work together effectively and maximise the benefits which they each can bring to the development and success of your
academy or multi-academy trust.
The event will be chaired by Dame Kathy August, who was awarded the DBE in the 2014 New Year’s Honours List for services to education. In 2003, Kathy took on the major challenge of becoming the first Principal of the Manchester Academy in Moss Side, which was
one of the first city academies in the UK and had previously been described as “one of the worst gang infested comprehensives in the country”. Just over five years later, the Academy was judged to be outstanding by Ofsted.
The event will take place at the Lowry Theatre, one of Manchester’s leading arts and education venues. Delegates will be welcomed on arrival with tea and coffee and can finish the session with networking and a bite to eat.
