Headmasters and board chairs at independent schools coast to coast have brought Ken Steele to campus to present on emerging trends affecting education, pedagogy, students, and higher education. Ken consolidates a broad range of research, demographics, trends and emerging practices to paint a vivid, thought-provoking and sometimes startling picture of the road ahead for K-12 and post-secondary teaching and learning, social economic and technological change, and evolving expectations and demands for high school graduates to survive and thrive in the rapidly-changing worlds of higher education and the global workforce.
Ken will discuss your school’s unique culture, history and strategic plans, before customizing his presentations to focus on key issues for your governing board, faculty and staff, parents or the broader community. (Click on specific topics and themes at right, for more information). Ken’s presentations are always up-to-the-moment fresh and just controversial enough, with dynamic visuals, video clips, fast-paced delivery and tasteful humour. The most demanding audiences report that even after 90 minutes, they could listen to more.
A typical day at an independent school may include a morning or evening presentation to parents, a late afternoon presentation to faculty and staff, and small-group discussion with senior administration or board members.

“Ken Steele led off a week of strategic planning at Collingwood School by presenting multiple times to Faculty, Board members and parents. He talked with real authority about the emerging trends in education and did it in such a compelling and engaging way. He had us all thinking. It was particularly impressive that he gave essentially the same presentation three times but tailored it strategically to each different audience – brilliant!”
Rodger Wright, Head of School, Collingwood School
“Ken’s presentation to our Board and our school Leadership Team was a critically important component of our comprehensive preparation towards the creation of our next strategic plan. He was delightfully provocative and entertaining, and the presentation was data-rich. He was able to answer any and all questions about the university and college environments with confidence and grace. Ken Steele’s perspectives and wisdom were invaluable.”
Geoff Roberts, Headmaster, Crescent School
“Ken’s presentations were outstanding. Knowledgable and insightful, he engaged well with his audience and stimulated lots of questions during his data-rich talks. Clearly Ken is an expert in the developing world of PSE, and we were grateful that he was able to get us up to speed.”
Barry Hughes, Head of School, Holy Trinity School
