MindShare Musings — The Connectors, Leaders, and People on the Move

I found myself having a conversation on leadership yesterday with my colleague, John Kershaw, C21 Canada, and discussing some of the inherent qualities that sometimes get forgotten. I consider myself a lifelong learner and athlete too! Yet, we never really stress the value in living a balanced lifestyle that incorporates health and fitness at any of EdTech events. Is there a place for healthy active living in the 7C’s of C21?

Perhaps it falls under character. I know that sport inspired me in many ways through my developmental years in honing my leadership skills. Please share your success story as a student athlete with us, young and older!

This month marks financial literacy month which definitely falls within the 7 C’s of C21 Canada as well. There are a wealth of resources available in Canada. Simply click here.

Congratulations to Judy Burns, EPSON Canada, who was recently promoted to national manager.

Our friend, Karen Billings at SIIA shared… Last Chance to Save $200 for the Education Business Forum. New York city, December 10-11 which is a great place to be that time of year!  Here’s the link to register.

Share you success stories! I always enjoy hearing from education and industry leaders on exciting news, research and events.

Cheers, R.
