Attended by more than 10,000 senior leaders since it was first held in 2014, the conference has become a ‘must attend’ event in the UK’s educational calendar and attracts high profile speakers from the fields of education, business, sport, politics and the arts. Past speakers include Lords’ Sebastian Coe and William Hague, Dame Katherine Grainger, Lyse Doucet and Fatima Bhutto.

Each keynote speaker is selected not just for the inspiring lessons of leadership that they bring to the conference but also for the new ideas, different ways of thinking and moments of refection that they share with the audience. 

This year’s keynotes will cover a diverse range of topics including advice on how to create more empathetic, inclusive and courageous cultures, leadership lessons we can learn from the natural world, team motivation and insight into the improvements which could be made in education through the use of AI.  

To mark its tenth year, the conference will also include a discussion panel hosted by Professor Steve Munby, and Schools Week’s ‘Meet The Leader’ theatre where journalists will host debates and discussions with key influencers and leaders from the world of education.  

Delegates also get the opportunity to network with fellow attendees throughout the event, to attend the conference’s official dinner and to talk with a range of organisations which support the education sector in a dedicated exhibitor area.

“The NAHT was one of the founding organisations behind Inspiring Leadership and is delighted to continue its support of the event in its tenth anniversary year. Today’s educational leaders face as many challenges as ever and this conference continues to give them an essential opportunity to recharge, learn and connect with others in the educational sector.  The tenth Inspiring Leadership Conference will again enable leaders to step back from the day-to-day, to reflect on their own practice and to develop their leadership capabilities.” 

Paul Whiteman, NAHT General Secretary
