Director of Learning and Technology
Benilde-St. Margaret’s School

As technological advances progress, machines will take over more and more of the manual and cognitive tasks that we humans once performed. What will be left for us, and how do we prepare our students for that world? Developing student mindsets for complex communication, collaboration, creativity, and critical thinking is vital. This session will discuss curriculum design for maximizing mindset development.

The Role of CEO in Independent/Private School Fundraising

Fundraising is essential to the health, vitality and sustainability of independent schools.  The responsibility for generating development revenue through events, direct mail, phone calls and personal visits often falls to the CEO of the school, and in many cases, the CEO feels unprepared for the role.  Even in schools in which there is a development director or team, the CEO is responsible for creating and supporting a culture in which a development program can thrive.  In this session, the role of the school CEO in development, and ideas for creating a culture of giving in your school will be explored.

Steve will be presenting in person and also via webinar.
