HEAD, HEART & HANDS
One a year, we bring all of the child-centred people we know together for an inspiring and informative day of innovative practice. Stimulating keynote speeches. Motivating practical workshops. Leading practitioners delivering to a crowd of likeminded professionals from all corners of the inclusive education and mental health sectors.
This years’ Nudge Remarkable conference followed the theme of 'Head, Heart and Hands'. The morning included keynotes and the afternoon brought workshops, all from highly regarded professionals within their fields. It was a day of valuable conversation and personal development with a focus on neuroscience, proximity, productivity, neurolinguistics, mental health, behavioural change strategy and more… Until next year!

HEART: “RELATIONAL PROXIMITY OR PROFESSIONAL DISTANCE?”
Bystander intervention vs. bystander apathy - why do people get involved in helping others? Or not? Why is understanding the various kinds of proximity key? How did ‘professional distance’ become the orthodoxy? How do we transform broken systems and challenge practices that are clearly not working?
