Thanks ECIS: great conference April 18, 2011

Posted by Alex, Managing Director in Conferences.

Back in the office this morning after returning from Istanbul and the European Council of International Schools (ECIS) April conference. It was another well organised and inspiring event from the ECIS team: thank you from John Catt Educational.

Highlights included the three keynote speakers: Michael Thompson, who spoke on the importance of courageous leadership in schools; social entrepreneur Wendy Luhabe, on the values and principals needed to thrive in 21st Century life; and Kyung Hee Kim, who discussed her recent study, The Creativity Crisis.

It was great to also see in attendance so many contributors to John Catt Educational publications over recent years: Mary Hayden and Jeff Thompson, editors of the newly-released and much talked-about Taking the MYP Forward, along with contributors Wilf Stout and Dominic Currer; Adele Hodgson and David Willows, editors of Effective Marketing, Communications and Development, along with contributors Beatrice Caston, Marcia De Wolf, Mary Langford, John Moser; and of course many of those who have contributed stories to International School (is) magazine over the years.

Finally, thank you to all those who attended our celebration to recognise the remarkable 30 years of the International Schools Journal, our joint venture with ECIS and CIS.

Attached are some photos from the wonderful boat trip up the Bosphorus on Saturday evening, on our way to the gala dinner at the Adile Sultan Sarayi.

We look forward to the ECIS November conference in Lisbon.
