It’s with a real sense of pleasure, enthusiasm and anticipation that I return to Perth to present at the ECAWA conference this year. Special thanks to Lynley McKernan and the whole conference committee for welcoming me in my new role with Hobsons Edumate. I will do three sessions, a keynote on Thursday and two sessions on Friday. The keynote and one session will be on Next Era Ed and how to get there while one session will highlight how Hobsons Edumate facilitates the journey. I’m also looking forward to catching up with the other conference keynoters: long-time colleague Dr Tim Kitchen and Dr. Michael Henderson. If you are in WA, I encourage you to join us all at Scotch College in Swanbourne for what is always a stimulating experience.
