Smart Savvy Family Seminars on February 9th 2013

I’m really looking forward to a new venture: the Smart Savvy Family seminars on Saturday February 9th 2013. I’ll be speaking with two other world class presenters, Terry Small and Poll Moussoulides, about how we can best learn in families (learning about the world and each other) with a view to having a more successful and thriving family and school life. Apart from sharing the stage, what’s new for me is that these half-day seminars are designed for parents and their children (aged 11-17) to attend together.
