2021 ICT Management and Leadership Conference:

Embracing Opportunity - Vision with Action


How do we embrace the opportunities that have emerged in recent times to translate our vision, ideas and strategies into action? What technologies that were until recently seen as pioneering are now mainstream and need to be understood and embraced? What must I do – not just to keep up, but to continue to lead?

The focus of this two or three day residential conference is the management of ICT in schools; introducing new technologies, managing the change their adoption brings, and assessing the difference this has made.

This 16th annual conference is a unique professional learning opportunity with a program designed to address innovation, data, strategy, security, leadership, management and educational perspectives.

While there are exhibitors on the exhibition floor, you won’t find any sales pitches masquerading as workshops or presentations. The program is delivered by industry professionals and speakers, as well as your ICT admin, networking and management peers, all of whom understand the imperative to share authentic stories, solutions and problems with you, their colleagues.

While many delegates are from NSW, each state is represented on the organising committee and we encourage participation from all sectors across the country.
