Attendee Testimony I was totally blown away with Mike Reist.  He is the best speaker I have ever seen or heard. This does not mean that the other workshops weren't great. If it wasn't for Gord Kerr, I wouldn't have known about a few things that I will now bring up at the next council meeting.  He has also given me the strength, assurance and knowledge to pursue many things that have not been happening and should be. Thank you to all the speakers. This conference also allowed me to find out what was going on at other schools and gave me ideas to try and get into play at my school.  I have been on the school council for about five years and I never heard about the Ontario School Advocate newspaper, until this year.  It is a great paper and gives a lot of information that I can use.  Keep up!” -- Angela Vagg S.C.C.Chair, Orton, ON I think this conference was excellent.  It gave me ideas for my school, my work and my family.  This was my first time attending an Ideas & Inspiration conference.

Special thanks to all of the Speakers and Presenters of this event for giving us all the “Ideas & Inspiration” required to carry on enthusiastically in our efforts of school advocacy! Brought to you by:
