Mind the Gap 2019

InterContinental London - The O2
23-25 January 2019

Join us in London for the 9th annual Nordic school development conference, in collaboration with Bett Show. Get on board and work with us in how we digitally, socially and ecologically can transform learning!

"Amazing keynotes, inspiring people, great ambience in an unbeatable location"

Participant at Lin's event in London 2018

Mind the Gap is a journey about gaps and the necessity of leaping them, but also about reducing the gaps. Join 600+ educators, teachers, principals and many other professions for an extraordinary experience in a fantastic setting, just across the river from Bett Show.

At our 3,000 sqm of event space we will create a gigantic variable program with seminars, workshops, inspiration and activities. And coffee. There will be lots of coffee.

Everything is managed and accessed easily through our event app. Mind the Gap is about exciting synergies and collaborations, learning from each other and helping reduce each other's gaps.

Gaps have been the story of our world and we all need to work towards uniting and bridging gaps to get a sustainable world. Get on board and work with us in how we digitally, socially and ecologically can transform learning.

This is what we did in January 2018. We promise you the same level of quality and engagement in 2019.

Fredrik talks about changes and global trends and how we need to innovate to face these new challenges. Today, we are living new lives, with a different view of work, education, life stages and aging. In our new lives there are many opportunities, but also a risk of people being left out and behind. What kind of leadership is needed to handle constant change? With a strong belief in humanity and knowledge that life can actually start several times, Fredrik Reinfeldt delivers sharp insights - as well as a few solutions to the challenges that are waiting for us.

David Phillips

Time to stop all boring lectures and sowing lessons. David Phillips is on a mission to save everyone from what he calls the "PowerPoint Death". David is today one of Europe's most appreciated lecturers and trainers in presentation technology and rhetorics. When someone speaks to us, we are all affected by a lot of things without noticing it - body language, emphases and word choices. The ones who knows the tricks also knows how much it is possible to influence others. Learn from the master and speak so that others really listen!
