This coming Thursday, August 29 at 7PM in the Lower School Library, TAS welcomes back renowned educational expert, John Littleford, to our campus. He will address our community on the topic of "Defining Excellence: The World of Independent Schools." Those who have been fortunate to hear him speak before have described him as "brilliant" and "mesmerizing." And according to a former independent school board chair and client, Mr. Littleford's "caring, passion and enjoyment fill up a room and infect everyone in it."
As the founder of the international management consulting firm, Littleford & Associates, Mr. Littleford specializes in advice for independent and international schools, colleges, and non-profit organizations. Prior to his career in educational consulting, Mr. Littleford served as Head of School for 18 years, a teacher for 25 years, and a board member and chair of schools and nonprofit agencies. As a result of his decades of working with thousands of the best of the best independent schools, Mr. Littleford travels around the world, over 320 days per year to over 1700 different clients to share his findings. He strongly believes in the power of independent schools to support students and we are thrilled that he will be joining the TAS community this Thursday evening.
