Consilium in conference, 2017

Birmingham, Lisbon, Oxford and Dubai

Members  of the Consilium Education team have been addressing conferences in Europe and the Middle East this year. Sustainable Schools, Digital Marketing in the field of education and listening skills for teachers are just three of the subjects we have been invited to talk about. In July our first conference was addressed by four leaders in the field of education and philosophy, including Professor Mick Waters and Sir Tim Brighouse.


Connecting Teachers Conference at the Joseph Chamberlain Sixth Form College 

Organised jointly with Joseph Chamberlain Sixth Form College, and hosted by Elly Tobin, College Principal and Consilium consultant, this was Consilium Education’s inaugural conference. Delegates enjoyed two lively days of networking and teacher-led workshops, with keynote speakers Professor Mick Waters, Sir Tim Brighouse, Teacher Toolkit founder, Ross McGinnis and social philosopher Roman Krznaric, getting each session underway with a series of thought provoking and inspiring talks. Consilium Education’s Peter Hudson was also in demand as a speaker on the subject of listening for school leaders and teachers.
