What do thought leaders across the world identify as the top trends facing education today? Join ed-activist, researcher and consultant Ian Symmonds as he gives a not-so-typical, 30,000 foot view of future trends facing private education today with a decidedly business application twist.

His talk will be a featured talk at the Independent Schools Association of Northern New England Business Officers Conference in Portland, Maine on January 11, 2017.
