From Meeting the Moment to Meeting the Future

While the pandemic has undoubtedly wreaked havoc on the world, there are signs of positive change emerging in the education sector. There has been an explosion of innovation which creates a tremendous opportunity for private education in the future. Fixed mindsets are changing, as are schedules, assessment, pricing, and delivery. One could argue that, as a result, we soon might see a more impactful and resilient learning organization. Join Symmonds as he outlines the future opportunities he sees for our industry.
