We’re entering the final days…on May 23 EdExec LIVE will be bringing the pages of EdExec to life in 30 Euston Square, London! A host of SBMs, consultants and industry experts will deliver seminars and workshops that provide take-home solutions – tailored to school business managers. So, what’s on?
Here’s a taster:
Pupils at a premium – do the right thing; show that you’re doing it

Having recently joined a MAT, and changed role from school business manager to chief operating officer, Nicky Gillhespy shares her experiences and the many tips she picked up on what was a steep learning curve. Nicky brings her unique knowledge and irrepressible optimism and reminds us that – whatever the situation – if you have confidence in yourself you can find a way to make it happen!
Look after your staff and they will look after you
Andrew Cowley, deputy headteacher at Orchard Primary school in Sidcup and co-founder of @healthytoolkit
How is your school addressing the issue of wellbeing amongst your staff? Is it fair and equitable or haphazard and unplanned? By approaching wellbeing from a principled and values driven perspective rather than treating it as a tick-box exercise, schools can motivate their staff to work at their full potential. In this session Andrew Cowley, deputy headteacher at Orchard Primary School in Sidcup, tackles wellbeing from a practical viewpoint, drawing from the experience of a small London primary school.
See me…hear me…
Justin Smith, MD of Chameleon Training and Consultancy
Your brand is your ethos writ large. So, what does your school say to prospective students, parents and teachers? Justin Smith explores how you can harness marketing to boost your school’s reputation in the community, attract, recruit and retain new students and teachers, and, importantly, how you can maximise the impact of your marketing budget.
