Key questions delegates might like to consider and bring to this discussion are:
1) Given the increasing financial pressures that MATS are under, what sort of senior leaders are best placed to be effective in a MAT's executive team?
2) How equipped are school leaders are to progress into more systemically focussed roles? What additional support might be useful to help them bridge any gaps that might exist in progressing through the MAT structure?
3) What are the greatest challenges in recruiting, developing and retaining your best talent?
4) Are your senior team or board working well together? Do they bring an appropriate variety of skills?
You do not need to provide written answers ahead of the session but please consider the questions ahead of time if you are confirmed a place to get the most from the session.
