Every cloud has a silver lining, and this one is called Kevin.

Due to unforeseen circumstances, we are sorry to announce that keynote speaker Caroline Sidell will not be able to join us at the WMPESS Conference  next week. We hope to collaborate with Caroline in the future so that you don’t miss out on hearing from her, so watch this space!

Don’t be too disappointed though (and don’t think you’re getting an extra long lunch!) because every cloud has a silver lining: Kevin Pace has kindly agreed to step into Caroline’s place.

An experienced teacher, school governor and author, Kevin is Director of the SUMO4Schools Foundation, a community interest, not-for-profit company which works with schools and other organisations to improve the lives of young people, professionals and parents.

Kevin’s keynote - Resilience in the Classroom starts in the Staffroom - will explore ways in which SUMO can support the wellbeing of staff and students in education settings. 

He summarises it in three points:

  • Resilience is not a birth right. It is a life skill that anyone can learn, and that we can teach (and PE is a great way to do it). 
  • Words are Powerful: A SUMO Checklist to identify students (and staff) engaged in critical self-talk (and what to do about it). 
  • Same storm, two boats: Why is it some students can move on immediately after a setback and others can't? (And how a beachball and a simple formula can help)

Kevin is a highly engaging presenter and we think you’ll agree that it sounds like an interesting talk.

If you haven’t got a ticket to the conference, there’s still time to sign up!
