Professor Yong Zhao brings extensive evidence to show that every child has both potential and need to become great. To help each and every child achieve their greatness, Dr Zhao explains that we need a different kind of education that focuses on enhancing the unique strengths and passion of each child.

Education is to help each and every child discover and develop their strengths and passions with the goal to create value for others and the world. Dr Zhao says that in order to do so, we need to make education personalises by the child, instead of personalised for the child.

The talk will be a followed by a drinks reception for all attendees.
