Revolutionizing Education—From the Ground Up
Schools across Iowa and the nation are innovating to meet the ever-changing needs and challenges of the 21st century. Noted speaker Sir Ken believes a highly personalized approach to education that draws on today’s unprecedented technological and professional resources can and will engage the talents of ALL students. He will share inspiring anecdotes, insights and practical examples from around the globe and inspire YOU to rethink how you can help transform standardized education into personalized 21st century education.

Second General Session and Luncheon Keynote Speaker

Being ALL IN—A Relentless Passion for Excellence
As a Nationally Distinguished Principal, Hamish is constantly calling on his high minority, high poverty, underserved students to “Be Relentless.” Hamish uses a relentless, ALL IN attitude and passion to motivate his students to succeed, no matter the circumstances in their lives. Hamish’s leadership lessons will help you find out if you’re willing to go one more round—to advocate for every single person and child—and if you’re willing to take your school or organization to the next level.
