Workshop 1
Building a Change Culture
This workshop will give you the chance to hear about some of the key lessons in making effective change and allow you to share your experiences and hear from colleagues on what has worked in making a difference

Workshop 2
Challenging Conversations
Especially in the current climate, School business managers are likely to have a lot of potentially challenging conversations. This session will look at how we can make these easier and explore how we turn difficult discussions into effective meetings

Workshop 3
Measuring Success
This workshop will ask lots of questions about what "success" looks like from the standpoint of a School business Manager. Is it survival, balanced books or something more and how will we know when we have achieved it? Like the earlier workshops this will be a blend of presentation and discussion
