A must attend event for headteachers, executive headteachers and senior leaders. In this online summit, you’ll learn how to create a better performance development and appraisal system. With inputs from researchers, successful school leaders and HR professionals, this summit will explore how we can replace bureaucratic and ineffective systems of performance management with systems based on the latest science of performance improvement.

With internal and external assessments disrupted, online learning and isolation changing the way we work, it’s time that our approach to appraising and developing staff caught up. In this one-day summit we’ll explore the research, review the examples, and replace demotivating systems with something better.

Feedback from previous TDT online summits:

 “Fantastic effort in putting this event together as a virtual conference at such short notice. The structured networking was impressive, as was the smoothness of the technology to deliver all aspects of the day. I look forward to receiving the slides to follow up further.”

“I think David was a superb chair and enjoyed his opening presentation immensely. His command of the zoom conference was impressive and he put everyone at ease and encouraged us all to participate. As a cautious first time delegate to a virtual conference, I thought it went extremely well. The range of speakers and content was excellent and I found the whole day thoroughly interesting and useful, if delivered a little fast at times! Many thanks for organising such a professional and helpful event.”

“It was perfect – a great combination and such rich expertise.”

“A very enjoyable day, managed so well in the circumstances with appropriate planning and meeting the needs of the audience.”
