'The sessions have been brilliant in helping me approach the day-to-day and more strategic challenges I face as a leader. I'm grateful to Jon - his experience, humour, and ability to challenge me to think through my options resulted in a series of really valuable sessions and I'm already feeling the difference in my working life'

'I have thoroughly enjoyed being part of the SEND Review process. [Backdrop Leadership] has provided clear guidance regarding how to conduct the reviews and the areas to explore. As a result, I am confident that I have gained an overview of both the strengths of SEN provision within [the area] and the areas that require focus during the coming year.'
- Multi Academy Trust - Strategic SENDCo
'Our day with {Backdrop] was very useful and has left us with a clear plan regarding our next steps. [Their] work has underpinned much of our recent self-evaluation but added an expert view on how to move things forward. Advice and strategies shared to date have been very useful and Jon was supportive and thought provoking throughout his visit. We very much look forward to the opportunity to work with Jon in the future.

Jon was an excellent coach, he encouraged me to think about problems from a different perspective and, through coaching models, was able to provide me with a valuable framework for communication.'
