The quality and depth of information that you get is unique. Other events simply do not compare in terms of having speakers and topics that directly answer the questions I am facing daily as a school business leader.” Previous delegate

What is agile leadership?

Agility is a key skill in the armoury of all school business leaders. Along with adaptability, financial expertise, resilience, negotiating nous, and entrepreneurial flair, as well as the ability to keep staff motivated and use fresh approaches in ever-challenging circumstances – these are all skills to harness and celebrate.

ASCL Conference for Business Leaders 2018 will explore agility in business leadership, now and looking to the future, and how to successfully navigate challenges at a time of rapid sector change, of growth in collaboration, and financial and resourcing challenges not seen for decades.

Our popular conference is a one-stop-shop providing all the essential information on key topics you need to know about now, whether you are a current or aspiring business leader working in primary, secondary or post-16, in an individual institution or across a group.  

Workshop topics include:

  • Through the lens of the new national funding formula - design, sufficiency and getting on with it!

  • Risk management - an "agile" due diligence process

  • Brand management for MATs and federations – developing and implementing a credible marketing strategy

  • Managing challenge and resistance in others

  • Employment tribunals - what you need to know

  • Agile governance

  • Building business capacity across a growing MAT

  • Collaborative working: leading your team through uncertainty and the unexpected
