"Once again COBIS have organised a fantastic roster of speakers and sessions for the annual conference. Every conference I have attended has had a wide variety of sessions that school leaders can genuinely learn from. The conference is also a great networking opportunity and I look forward to meeting colleagues and friends that I have only seen via a computer screen for two years."
