The Pruning

Our partnership with Simon has been foundational in providing the support, tools and resources to shift the way we support professional learning within our division. He has provided the opportunity for teachers to engage in authentic collaborative professional learning that is student-driven and evidence-focused. The process has allowed us to develop common language regarding teacher collaboration across the division; leading to improved teacher learning, student outcomes and focus.

Simon played a critical role in designing, facilitating and evaluating the 2016 NSW Education Symposium described by many participants as the most significant education conference in NSW for a decade. His understanding of students, teachers and school and his relentless focus on impact make him a highly sought after identity in education, not just in NSW but across Australia.

Hon Adrian Piccoli

Simon’s presentation was precise and thought provoking. His clarion communication skills are exemplar. He met and exceeded our expectations in every aspect. We feel fortunate to have the benefit of his expertise.

Judge D. Arnot

Working with Simon is the safest way to make sure a high profile, ambitious event for school leaders breaks new ground and leaves people wanting more. Nobody can engage, challenge, provoke, and entertain a room full of school leaders like Simon Breakspear.

Sean Tierney

Simon’s sessions received unanimous praise for their practical and relatable content. Simon’s session hit precisely on addressing how overloaded educators can keep getting better. Many staff have since commented that this School Development Day was the most worthwhile professional learning they’ve attended. As principal and event organiser, I wholeheartedly endorse Simon’s inclusion in your own professional learning days/conferences.
