Thinking Leaders: Provocations and Opportunities

Registrations are now open for the 2021 PDN School Leaders’ Conference, taking place from Sunday 15th August to Tuesday 17th August 2021 (Main program 16 & 17 August).

While we made the difficult decision to postpone the 2020 PDN Conference, we look forward to bringing you this incredible program in 2021. We are also excited to announce that the PDN Conference will be presented as a hybrid event for the first time, with tickets available to access the program online or attend in-person.

Join Queensland’s top school leaders from the public, private, primary, secondary and special school sectors for the Professional Development Network's (PDN) 2021 School Leaders’ Conference.

The conference theme is Thinking Leaders: Provocations and Opportunities. With five keynote speakers, panel discussions and four workshops to choose from over two days, plus a special welcome reception on 15 August with guest speaker Professor Pasi Sahlberg, PDN celebrates 25 years of provoking leadership excellence.

Our presenters will examine the barriers and obstacles to improvement and innovation that confront school leaders and challenge the status quo.  You will be provoked to clarify challenges and seek opportunities to response with precision and purpose.

The PDN Conference is the perfect chance for your leadership team to culminate their shared experience in a rewarding, collaborative and stimulating environment that promotes networking across schools.

What to expect

PDN will celebrate its 25th Anniversary and 24th Annual Conference with a Welcome Keynote and Reception, with world-renowned Finnish educator, author and scholar Professor Pasi Sahlberg joining attendees to share some of his wisdom in an unmissable keynote presentation, followed by drinks and canapés.

This very special event is included in the full conference registration, or purchasable as an individual event ticket. Afterward, conference attendees can choose to have an early rest ahead of the big two days to come, or enjoy a team dinner and set your goals for the conference at one of the hotel’s inviting restaurants and bars.

Rise and shine, it’s registration time! Collect your satchels and complimentary coffee vouchers at the registration desk and fuel up for a jam-packed day of learning and strategic planning.

Jaya Hartley, student at Southport State High School, will acknowledge the traditional custodians of the land we meet on, before Professor Donna Pendergast, Dean and Head of the School of Education and Professional Studies, Griffith University offically opens the conference. Our opening Keynote speaker Jane Caro AM is a social commentator, writer and lecturer who is passionate about education.  Jane will come together with David Gillespie, a recovering corporate lawyer and author of eight bestselling books, and Prof Pasi Sahlberg in a panel discussion, cracking open the can of worms on provocations and opportunities school leaders are facing right now.

Take a morning tea break to discuss with your teams, before we return to the plenary room to hear pitches for our two workshop options - Laureate Prof Marilyn Fleer from Monash University will delve into leading by using and generating evidence-based practices with Conceptual Playwords for teachers in primary schools, and the Mad Hatters’ Society with Dr Shannon Morton will explore disruption, innovation and shame resilience. The difficult choice is yours!

Before we break for workshops, enjoy dedicated marketplace time where you can explore the wide range of activities, products and services on offer in our exhibition areas, before a delicious lunch is served.

Directly after lunch, attend your workshop of choice. Workshops have been extended to 1.5 hours this year to allow you to dive a little deeper. Grab some afternoon tea before hearing from our final Keynote speaker for the day, BOSS Magazine’s Young Executive of The Year and one of Westpac AFR’s 100 Women of Influence, Felicity Furey, who will give you a practical toolkit to empower current leaders to tap into, retain and attract the next generation of leaders.

You will have a couple of hours free to debrief with your teams or get glammed up, before everyone’s favourite part of the conference – the Gatsby themed Gala Dinner is the time to celebrate, laugh, and dance the night away!  Put on the ritz and don your swankiest 1920s attire for a night of glitz and glam, with special entertainment that will have you shimmying and swinging like it’s the Twenties all over again!

We hope you saved one of your complimentary coffee vouchers, because you may need an extra kick-start after the celebrations last night!

First up, hear from John Marsden, world-renowned children’s author and Principal of Candlebark School and Alice Miller School, on how he has successfully shaped some of Australia’s most sought-after schools. We enjoy an extended morning tea, marketplace and dedicated team collaboration time before we hear from today’s workshop choices - Simon Doble, humanitarian and CEO of SolarBuddy, will empower you to lead meaningful change, and Dr Michael Rosemann, Director of QUT's Centre for Future Enterprise will delve into trust opportunity. To keep things moving we offer a delicious express lunch before the final keynote, presented by Australian artist Tim Sharp and his mother Judy. They will share their incredible story about the power of love and art, following Tim’s journey from being diagnosed with severe autism to becoming an internationally acclaimed artist.

Let's not forget the prize draw before you depart.  Who doesn't love the chance to win something, especially the amazing products that the sponsors have donated!

Jabiru is a local, social-purpose, not-for-profit organisation. Jabiru partners with children, young people and families, particularly focusing on those experiencing vulnerabilities, by creating safe places and relationships that connect people, resources, ideas and communities.

Jabiru is more than a school-age care provider. Our deep-rooted history in community development and wraparound support services provides the cornerstone of our practice within a school-age care context. As a local not-for-profit community organisation, embedding ourselves in local communities is not an add-on. It is what we were created to do. It is in our DNA.

As an organisation, we not only deliver school-age care, we engage with a range of educational-based communities, including delivering student support services, employment and training programs and our own independent school – Jabiru Community College. We genuinely know the challenges of working within the educational ecosystem, including curriculum development, recreational activities, social and emotional support for children and families, and working within Education Queensland systems and structures.

We are renowned for innovation and industry best practice.

We have an excellent reputation in innovation and leadership. Our research and development partnerships with QUT and Griffith University inform the ongoing improvement of our programs. Author of the national framework for school-age care ‘My Time, Our Place,’ Dr Jennifer Cartmel from Griffith University, is a long-term collaborator who provides ongoing encouragement, advice and support in the development of our Communities for Kids program. Jabiru presented alongside Dr Cartmel at the World Education Research Network Conference on Extended Education in Stockholm in September 2019, on ‘Experiences of Community in School Age Care’. We are continuing this research in partnership with Dr Cartmel and will be presenting the paper ‘School Aged Care Services: A new neighbourhood for children’ at the World Education Research Network Conference on Extended Education in September 2020.

We are a social enterprise that is entrepreneurial, innovative and operates to intentionally tackle social issues, improve communities and provide people with access to resources, employment and training.
