A journey towards the tipping point
There is a community of educators that are changing the way people think about our profession and moving through a stage of transformation to tip the scale of traditional views and stereotypes. Join Naomi Hartl, as she delivers a thoughtful keynote on her journey towards the tipping point, the people who influence her, and how you can find your place in this community of changemakers. Malcolm Gladwell says “Look at the world around you. It may be an immovable, implacable place. It is not. With the slightest push – in just the right place – it can be tipped”.
