WHAT IS Transformative Leadership Summit?

Since starting the Transformative Principal Podcast, I've wanted to create an annual conference that would serve as the catalyst for savvy educators around the world to easily transform their schools to be the best places for kids. It doesn't matter what your role at your school, you contribute to the powerful impact schools can have on students.

It's called Transformative Leadership Summit, and it will bring thousands of teachers, principals, leaders, and key influencers together from July 31-August 8 for an 8-day journey through optimizing every aspect of the school experience. Focusing on the Student Experience, Parent Experience, Teacher Experience and Administrator Experience.




Transformative Leadership Summit and Transformative Principal Podcast

Join host Jethro Jones as he interviews over 3 dozen world-class educational leaders to learn how to improve the School Experience.  

The Transformative Leadership Summit will focus on improving the * Administrator Experience * Teacher Experience * Student Experience * Parent/Community Experience  

Each interview will give you actionable steps on making your school better than it has ever been, even if you are already an awesome school.  

There’s something here for everyone!

As a school principal my world revolves around my campus and our kids. I have great team members in my district, but I also find so much value in looking outside our box to better support and drive our school forward.

Last year I was excited to benefit from the Transformative Leadership Summit. I was able to listen and watch on my own time, during the day, after school, and on my commute. 

I learned from various leaders and innovative thinkers - giving me new perspectives, ideas, processes, and innovations. In addition to that, I also had the all access pass which provided me with the relevant documents and tools available to modify for my actual campus (and all the videos to reference again later). 

When I heard early bird registration was available, I jumped right on it.
