Middle Temple Hall

Another day, another fabulous venue.

Middle Temple with it’s oil paintings, sweeping staircases and dark wood panelling is beautiful. The air of ‘traditional’ values hangs about the place, so it felt nicely disruptive to be working with a group of ambitious female teachers looking to thrive in senior roles and bring more diversity to senior management. By the end of just two hours it was exciting to see them standing taller, taking up space, breathing deeply and speaking with confidence.

Top tip from the day? When you are walking towards that meeting, assembly or interview think about something that will make you smile and feel happy! The endorphin boost will improve your cognitive function and memory – you’ll take that challenge in your stride!

Thank you Claire Burgess of Soar Development for inviting me to be part of your wonderful programme.
