Welcome to the 2017 VPA Annual Conference Website


The VPA 2017 Conference Inspiring Teams Through Positive Leadership will provide school leaders with the information to develop skills that will enhance their effectiveness when building successful, high performing teams. The topics covered include how to use positive psychology to bring out the best in you and others, how to spot talent, plain language communication techniques and how to lead with humour. Our learning intention is that you leave the conference with strategies to build your own and others’ knowledge regarding effective teams, how to overcome limiting beliefs and how to build resilience
