Feedback form is now closed.
The moment you walk through the door of a school you can feel the energy and often determine if it's a place you would want to send your children. The number one wish of parents worldwide is for their children to be happy. What is it that makes some schools happier than others? What does the science of happiness teach us about leading schools? Come listen to stories and share best practices of ideas that unite and inspire at the classroom, school and district level. Participants will leave with new ideas they can use tomorrow to improve their own levels of happiness in their personal and professional lives. Come as strangers, leave as friends.
