IFL Application to Contribute 2020
Welcome to the International Festival of Learning and thank you for your interest in speaking or suggesting ideas!
Please be aware that Steering Group policy is such that we are not in a position to pay individual speakers who are directly linked to education, but we do offer lunch and full, free access to the festival for you and a colleague. The IFL has become one of the most sought after speaking slots for people who have something to offer, and who also wish to maintain and develop their profile among some of the most prolific and exciting speakers around.
WHY SPEAK AT THE IFL?
As a not-for-profit premier event, led by a steering group of headteachers, CEOs, business leaders and local authority representatives, the philosophy and atmosphere is unique because people want to be part of a movement of people with a passion for education. It's a great opportunity to enjoy a mutually rich experience within a 'honeypot' network of other professionals, as well as giving you an opportunity to promote your brand or service. There are some wonderful speakers and content, and we hope you will enjoy the day!
