"It was a privilege to hear Jen speak at the Age Schools Summit in April. It was a riveting keynote on the Future of Education which drew on Jen’s breadth of experiences. I really liked the way her key ideas and learnings were encased within the stories she told of her travels overseas, working in schools across the world. The keynote also featured some really potent ideas around how to maximise your impact on the world through empowering others, which will stay with me for a long time to come."

“As we consider the future of education, how do we empower those around us? When we look for opportunities to empower those around us, we create a ripple effect that is far greater than we could achieve on our own”. An inspiring keynote from Jen Buchanan.
Jen’s understanding and ability to connect with such a diverse audience was apparent from the moment she stood on stage. Having such a incredible story and global understanding Jen provided a great insight to what it takes to lead a community.

John Stewart - Principal, The Living School
I loved hearing about the trailblazing schools and the mindset needed to implement change. I felt inspired by the idea of our children learning about things that would be of value to them to help them succeed in life like states of flow. I was excited about the idea of innovative education, moving out of our outdated institutionalised education.
