Opened by Sir David Carter:

A truth presented from a committed experience (40 years) to building and sustaining school and improving classrooms for all children. #rEDBerks As ever, more questions than answers from @Carter6D

Eloquently closed by Beccy Allen.

The full presentation is here.

Thank you to the organisers the event.
