PARENT - SEMINAR
After hearing Brad speak at the parent forum, I was able to reflect on my son's learning to date, and using his clear and well articulated strategies about growth mindset and self-regulation. From the next day I commenced ongoing discussions with him which saw him become motivated and engaged in his own learning and success. I'd recommend Brad as a great speaker for sessions with students or parents, even other professionals for that matter.

THE GREAT THING ABOUT BRAD'S PRESENTATIONS ARE THAT HE UNDERSTANDS THE RESEARCH CONNECTED TO THE TEACHING AND CAN CLEARLY LINK THIS TO THE CLASSROOM. I CAME AWAY WITH SO MANY GREAT IDEAS FROM HIS ADDRESS AND WILL USE THEM BECAUSE THEY'RE PRACTICAL AND RELEVANT. THE FACT HE CAN CONNECT TO SO MANY FACETS OF LEARNING AND TECHNOLOGY WAS A REAL BONUS! THANKS.
Brad talked about the importance of self-belief and motivation in all that we do, not just music. I was able to understand why many of my students weren't as successful as they should be and his ideas really inspired me to use self-reflection in my classroom. The teachers in the room were highly engaged, but most importantly the ideas he presented were relevant and clearly demonstrated. Those ideas moved my students to the next level in their performance and understanding.
