Stephen Hawking: born on the same day Galileo died, died on the same day Einstein was born. Pi day. Associated with greatness from birth to death. His contribution to science, culture and the world can never be quantified (or quantum-fied, should I say). Thankyou for the stars 💫

Retention is so complex especially in London. Happy to chat and exchange ideas.

Would love to hear more... can you DM

Suspect that all three keynotes at are going to focus on this important issue. Lots that heads in ALL settings can learn from what are up to!


Agreed. Myself and the Exec did that when we first took over. Half a day at least every support role. Gave huge insight and worth the time.


At staff briefing, thank with total honesty for behind the scenes effort like the premises team. Give them a round of applause even though they might not be there.


Thanks Andy. Would love to host you for a visit to swop ideas...

This week I was rehearsing ‘Forget You’ which I have been learning for a month. I practiced five times this week, once in my music lesson, twice during free periods and twice at home in the evenings.

Although I am confident with most of this piece, I have noticed that I often sing slightly out of tune at the end of the chorus.  In order to improve this section I just worked on that section, repeating it over and over again, slowing it down, speeding it up and recording myself and listening back until it sounded correct.    When I listened back to the recordings of myself, my awareness about which notes were out of tune was raised and I was able to identify which ones needed work.  If I had not listened back, I might have missed errors and not been able to improve them.  Once I had found the errors I worked on the small section over and over again so that I could correct just that section and ensure that I had the tuning absolutely correct without getting distracted by the rest of the song.  If I had been singing the whole way through the song, I would not have been able to make as much progress on that section.  My rehearsals this week mean that I am now confident singing the difficult section at the end of the chorus.  Although I couldn’t correct it immediately, regular practice throughout the week meant that it gradually improved.
