“Best, most engaging and inspiring day of in-service in my 30 year career”

“Very much appreciated the opportunity to interact with colleagues and have our work treated so respectfully. I think ADs are the forgotten people in terms of professional development. This seminar gave us the opportunity to have professional development tailored directly to what we do. I will come again.”

“Good information. Great opportunity to mix with other ADs about the issues they are facing relating to the conference topics. Always valuable time spent.”
