Title of presentation:

Henry V – Inspirational Leadership

Who is it for

All delegates

Brief overview of the presentation :

We use Shakespeare’s play to look at major educational leadership themes at every level of school life.  We believe that anyone involved in the teaching, mentoring or supervision of young people is in a key leadership role, whether they are currently aware of that or not.  Henry V is the story of a leader who unites his people around a common goal, overcoming many obstacles in his path on his way to achieving a remarkable victory against significant odds.

School leaders and teachers need to be visible. They need to communicate vision and purpose in a way that inspires their teams and truly reflects their passion and commitment with authenticity. Participants will be introduced to the story of Shakespeare’s most inspired and inspiring leader, Henry V.
