Stockholm 3

Today was a great day, I met so many brilliant colleagues and made so many friends...

The Stockholm Inspirational Leadership Seminar was at Norra Latin, in central Stocholm, and I talked to colleagues from across Stockholm. We then drove to Sollentuna to have lunch with Maria Stockhaus, Leader of their Education Committee, and Camilla Wallstrom, their Director of Education. We then drove to their municipal centre to deliver the Inspirational Leadership Seminar in their fantastic new conference facility where they also hold their council meetings.

There is so much we can learn from each other, to help us both build brilliant provision consistently across our two great cities. Camilla gave me a copy of the 'lonely planet' city guide to Stockholm as a thank you and to encourage me to come back some time to explore their beautiful city!

Hi Chris,
I trust that you and Richard had a safe trip home. We at ICG are very pleased to have hosted your visit here in Stockholm over the past 3 days and feel strongly that due to your inspiring seminars to combined over 220 senior educators and leaders and the very useful and benefiical meeting with the leader of the Stockholm City education committee, Lotta Edholm and compulsory schools education director HÃ¥kan Edman, that cooperation will proceed well between Stockholm and Leeds. There is a real willingness we believe between the two cities to create better outcomes for our children through shared practices and development. We look forward to seeing you here agian in May as well as our visit to Leeds in April woth a strong group of Heads from Stockholm and Sollentuna,
Best Wishes John & Jonathan
