Hear inspiring keynotes from seasoned leaders who have faced challenges like the ones you are facing now, and get one-on-one help.

“I found all of the keynote sessions to be very engaging and relevant. Each of the presenters was knowledgeable about the content and shared tips and practical strategies to assist site administrators in building and sustaining culture. As a high school principal I found the final keynote to be the most valuable to me. Mr. Jones was outstanding and it was nice to hear the perspective of a high school colleague. Thank you! ”

Tony Newman, principal/assistant, Ramona High School, California

“The information was amazing. I left with a new drive to improve our school culture through PLC.”

Nicole Overton, principal/assistant, Overhills High/Spring Lake, North Carolina

“I appreciated the 'why' combined with the 'how to'—and I felt that the presentations were done in a way that demonstrated how we can present this information to our school site.”
