It is evident that many members of IET’s Leading Leaders Network are dyed-in-the-wool classic rockers who love a little heavy metal. To this end, IET has secured the services of ZZ Top to entertain you during the Summer Event in London. Unfortunately, LLN delegates will be in the Ibis Hotel, Wembley and ZZ Top will be in the Wembley Arena… Wembley! Still, if the weather is good we can always drag our deck chairs to the plaza and listen to the gig outside.
You will be glad to know that we have some other exciting things happening, during our two days together. Oakington Manor Primary School has kindly offered to host this term’s event. The school has been at the forefront of technology in London for many years and has led the way in the effective use of 3D technology, robotics, programming, radio and podcasting.
In addition to these areas, the schools is moving forward with some very interesting coding strategies. Ophelia Vanderpuye is the Head of ICT (a regular LLN event attendee!) who is widely recognised as an award winning and outstanding practitioner. She has been called upon to deliver presentations throughout the UK and abroad. The Executive Headteacher, Sylvie Libson OBE, is one of Brent’s leading headteachers who has achieved so much in supporting and managing other schools and has many unique ideas to drive forward standards in innovative ways. Oakington Manor employs various dynamic and unique strategies that will be of great interest to headteachers.
Oakington Manor is located very close to Wembley Stadium so we have chosen a hotel that overlooks this superb landmark as well as offering views to central London. We will be staying at the Ibis Hotel (www.ibis.com) which is not as plush as our normal venues but enables us to keep the costs down and is within metres walking distance of Wembley Stadium Tube Station and the new Wembley Designer Outlet Mall. So we have built in some time to enable you to walk around the environs of the Stadium or shop till you drop at the Designer Outlets. We have chosen restaurants near to the hotel and in the Stadium complex so that you can experience the excitement of this amazing space.
The cost for the two-night event is £285 + VAT per delegate and, if you wish to arrive on the Thursday morning, it will be £205 + VAT.
