Probably not the prettiest city in Germany (it was devastated in the war) – the last time I was in Hannover I stumbled upon Schützenfest Hannover – a huge parade of hunters, brass bands, brewers’ drays and choirs. It was a great spectacle and great fun following it to the funfair and the giant Ferris Wheel. Well who would have thought that running a workshop on middle leadership development for teachers at international schools could be as memorable a day? Thanks to Phil, Jocelyn, Richard, Kim, Sarah, David, Brian, Chris, Renee, Andrea, Ian, Maureen, Janet, Matthew, Suzanne, Jason, Emma, Sabina, Angie, Jordan, Petra, Rupert and Fiona for their responsiveness and enthusiasm.
