Waltham Forest Head Teachers’ Conference & Exhibition 2021

Event Dates and Prices

Wednesday 29th & Thursday 30th September 2021

“Face Any Challenge Together

 

Working together with Waltham Forest Headteachers and the local Borough Council, we are delighted again this year to be assisting with the organisation of the Waltham Forest Headteachers Annual Conference.

The conference is being held over two days with an exhibition running alongside the conference on the first day.  The excellent facilities of Down Hall Hotel have been chosen as the venue and Headteachers are invited to attend for the two days, including accommodation and dinner, and Deputies and Senior Leaders are invited to attend for the day on either or both of the two days.

The event will include top keynote presentations and it is hoped that around 20 education suppliers will take stands to complement the first day.

Delegates wishing to attend should please register below.  The cost per delegate is £369.00 inc VAT for a two-day Headteacher place and either £120.00 or £180.00 inc VAT for a one-day place for Headteachers, Deputies and Senior Leaders, depending on the day attended. Other options are available and may be found on the registration page.

Companies wishing to take a stand should kindly contact us as soon as possible as space is limited and can only be offered on a first come, first served basis.

Down Hall Hotel, Matching Road, Hatfield Heath, Essex CM22 7AS

Hope Virgo

Hope Virgo

Author and Mental Health Speaker. Hope is the Author of Stand Tall Little Girl, and a multi award winning international leading advocate for people with eating disorders. Hope helps young people and employers (including schools, hospitals and businesses) to deal with the rising tide of mental health issues which affect one in four people and costs employers between £33 and £42 billion annually. She has been described by Richard Mitchell, CEO of Sherwood Forest Hospital, as "sharing a very powerful story with a huge impact". Hope is also a recognised media spokesperson, having appeared on various platforms including BBC Newsnight, Victoria Derbyshire, Good Morning Britain, Sky News and BBC News. For four years, Hope managed to keep it hidden, keeping dark secrets from friends and family. But then, on 17th November 2007, Hope's world changed forever. She was admitted to a mental health hospital. Her skin was yellowing, her heart was failing. She was barely recognizable. Forced to leave her family and friends, the hospital became her home. Over the next year, at her lowest ebb, Hope faced the biggest challenge of her life. She had to find the courage to beat her anorexia.
