Annual General Meeting
Brian Jones - Leadership is Building Capacity
Brian is a number one fan of Scientist in School and has watched the program grow since hosting his first "WATER" session for his kindergarten students in the early years of the program. From various perspectives through the eyes of a dad, teacher, consultant, course director, administrator and education officer, he has watched the Scientists in School program build capacity. Currently working as an Education Officer at the Ontario Ministry of Education in the Leadership and School board Governance Branch, Brian will share lessons learned and offer insight on how to continue to build the organization. "Leadership is measured not by what you do, but by what others do through your guidance and support".
