The Festival of Education was a HUGE success again this year, attracting teachers, students and educational professionals from all round the country to the beautiful Wellington College for another action-packed two days. You can check out videos from The Telegraph’s event on the Festival’s YouTube page here.
We were absolutely delighted to be an exhibitor at the event, along with the likes of Schools Week, Microsoft and BBC Learning. We met some incredible individuals who were all there to help improve the lives of our country’s young people.
There was plenty to do at the festival, from holding reptiles, to circus skills, to watching the great performances going on outside. This was all topped off with an array of talks from influential speakers such as Rory Bremner, Germaine Greer and Piers Morgan, to name but a few.There were so many people coming over to us throughout the festival explaining how they were excited about our MD, Carrie Starbuck speaking on both days of the festival about Memory Matters. 52 attendees squeezed into a small classroom to watch Carrie talk on the Thursday, and Friday’s session was the busiest speech of the day in that room. It smashed our expectations! You can find out more about Carrie’s motivational talk here, where she has also uploaded the slides and transcript.
Overall, the festival was AWESOME and we would like to say a huge thank you to the The Telegraph for asking us to participate again!
We’d also like to say a massive thank you to the teachers, students and educational professionals we got to meet – We came away truly inspired.
We can’t wait to see what next year has to bring!
