** Afternoon Sessions:

We will come prepared to present on any/all of these topics—the more of these sessions we do, the more we find that the wishes, needs, hopes and dreams of the participants will vary.  Rather than imposing our schedule on the participants, we’ll listen to you at the beginning and design the day to make the best use of everyone’s time.  Flexibility is an important skill for any educational leader to possess and we’ll do our best to be flexible to maximize the value of the day.
