Symposium is a series of rich live learning experiences for school leaders who value alternative and refreshing perspectives.

We bring world-class speakers to your laptop every month to create highly engaging and thought-provoking interactions. We invite you to continue your learning and reflections in our network with the speakers and each other.

Wild Leadership and Outdoor Intelligence

With Fi MacMillan
Through guiding leaders to cultivate connection to nature, the primary system we all belong to, Fi has witnessed them find a deeper sense of stillness, presence, wisdom and creativity.

In Symposium, your collective learning is brought together under three simple themes:


By befriending your inner world and expanding your self-awareness, you choose to be centred in your most resourceful self, even under pressure.


Be inspired to think differently and challenge the assumptions and beliefs that have served you until now.


Take skilful action from the foundations of your most resourceful self and best thinking.

Faculty Workshop

Wild Leadership and Outdoor Intelligence

With Fi MacMillan

Why Fi?

Fi has developed a theory of ‘outdoor intelligence’ and how it serves leaders to spend time outdoors. Through guiding people to cultivate connection to the primary system we all belong to, she has witnessed them find a deeper sense of stillness, presence and wisdom.

What will you learn?

You will experience a deeper connection to and between the natural world and your inner world.

What difference will this make for you?

You will touch on the possibility of creating more space for your thinking, dreaming, processing and planning.

Coming up in Symposium

A neglected area of school leadership, Nic will guide us through global technology trends that you need to be aware of. She will explore the opportunities and pitfalls presented by edtech.
With Charmaine, we will explore what it means to decolonise leadership in the context of international education.
Poetry distils the essence of complexity in a way that cuts through the noise of confusion. To read and write poetry creates welcome companionship and connection in times of upheaval.
