Today was Osiris Educational’s ‘Growing Mindsets Convention 2014’ in London. As well as a programme of excellent speakers, including Carol Dweck, Matthew Syed and Barry Hymer, it was also an opportunity to spend some time with EG Schools colleagues – Dan Brinton,Pete Jones & Zoe Elder. The day didn’t disappoint and provided many thought provoking moments. A summary follows.
The day got underway with Professor Carol Dweck – and a photo opportunity not to be missed!
“I don’t divide the world into the weak and the strong, or the successes and the failures…I divide the world into the learners and non-learners.”
– Benjamin Barber
