Do nothing in haste; look well to each step; and from the beginning think what may be the end – Edward Whymper (on how to climb a mountain!)
Whether you are new to school business management, looking for advice on professional development, or seeking support in a particular area of your role, please do get in touch.
I offer whole and half day workshops for groups of SBMs, exploring ways to improve effectiveness for self and the team. These are fast-paced, interactive and fun! We use the ISBL Professional Standards, especially the “behaviours”, to provide a framework for improvement. If you are part of a network of SBMs and are looking at providing affordable further professional development, please contact me.
Do you need to run an INSET day/half day for your staff and not sure where to start? I will work with you to build an affordable programme, tailor made for your organisation’s needs. Have a look at the Training and Development page for just a selection of the workshops and training events I offer.
I am proud to have been involved in providing “Views from an Expert” for The School Business Manager’s Handbook by Hayley Dunn, and would thoroughly recommend this book to all colleagues involved in School Business Management.
Are you looking to recruit a school business manager, or member of the school business management team? As with any leadership position, it is essential to appoint the right person for this increasingly complex position. I can help with support and advice with all parts of the process, from compiling job descriptions, to advertising, through to supporting the interview process, please contact me.
