Proposal summary

Purpose & objective

Education draws passionate & talented individuals to its ranks. These professionals are completely dedicated to student learning, and strive daily to connect with each student to help them achieve. Often, these motivated individuals get driven into a ‘bunker’ mentality by forces beyond their control, and take refuge in making the learning environment the best for those students within their scope of influence.

Learn how educational leaders break out of these confines and stretch their entrepreneurial muscles through innovative public-private partnerships, contests, outreach and other efforts. Inspire the entrepreneur in all educators – using successful examples to give them tools and techniques to move even the most reticent educational institutions forward for the benefit of all kids.

I will provide attendees with several immediately applicable ways to transform the culture of their school or district to provide students with the best possible opportunities for success.

I will also propose a new model for evidence of success: the innovation index.
