2023 Conference Delegate Testimonials

Very good conference, a great opportunity to meet a wide range of tutors and tuition business owners from across the country.
National Tutors Conference by Conexus Tuition 2023
John Nichols – President, The Tutor’s Association
I found every aspect of the conference authentic. The workshops I attended were thought provoking, challenging me to consider and implement new ways of thinking in the business world, and I left with ideas and resources that I can utilise immediately. There was an amazing buzz of positivity at the conference. Everyone I spoke to gave their time and expertise willingly. I felt a sense of belonging to this group. Drew’s keynote speech was moving, thoughtful and offered practical strategies to move forward as a leader in business. His mantra of ‘Why not?’; ‘Why not me?’; ‘Why not me now?’ will stay with me for a long time. Sharon is an inspiration and her passion for a fair education system for all its stakeholders is evident.

Susan Marsh – Tutor
The conference had a wonderfully supportive (& fun) atmosphere. I was hugely looking forward to it and it certainly did not disappoint but in fact, over-delivered. I made some wonderful connections, received lots of sound advice and ideas and listened to two inspiring key note speeches that will stay with me a long time. I’m already counting down to next year!

Kelly Reeves – Tutor
The overall experience was excellent and the best part of the day was being able to talk to other tutors at lots of different stages in their careers as tutors. I enjoyed the networking immensely. The workshops were interesting, especially the talks by Drew and Sharon. I got lots of new ideas to help my business grow and it was great to meet people in person whom I had been interacting with online.

I loved every minute of it. The breakfast and networking opportunities in the morning, the multiple workshops delivered by amazing experts, the keynote speakers who blew us away, and of course, the evening entertainment was fantastic. I would certainly go again now as a more seasoned tutor!

Raymond Caton – Tutor
The National Tutors Conference was a fantastic opportunity which came right at the very start of my business journey. The atmosphere at the conference was very friendly and supportive, with tutors eagerly sharing their experiences and insights with each other. A variety of different workshops were offered, each helping to enhance a different aspect of skill, and powerful keynotes helped to inspire and galvanise purpose among us. I will definitely return next year. Thank you Sharon and the team!

Christopher Banham – Tutor
Drew Povey’s keynote speech had a powerful impact and I’ve found myself referring back to his words as various points in these few weeks following the conference. Similarly, Claire’s sessions were really insightful and helped me to reflect on my own limiting beliefs as a business owner and a tutor. The atmosphere across the two days was positive and collaborative and there was a sense of community as a group of teachers/ex-teachers/tutors coming together for a common cause.

Everything was so useful. I walked away with so many practical tips and, most importantly for me, an enormous sense of empowerment.

Vicki Gilby – Tutor
I found the workshops really informative and useful particularly Ilana’s 11+ one. I have used several of the ideas she talked about, and they have been well received by my students. The keynote speeches were brilliant and Drew’s courage speech resonated with me particularly. Everyone was very friendly and approachable – all in all a great experience.

Claire Pope – Tutor
The sessions were directly applicable to our situation as tutors, so it felt very worthwhile. I appreciated the encouragement to gain confidence in myself as a self-employed professional. It was super-friendly – I talked to lots and lots of people and gained so many helpful insights.

Diana Quigley – Tutor
I thoroughly enjoyed every single aspect of the day! Everyone was so friendly and welcoming from the minute I arrived. The venue was beautiful and all the meals were presented so well with lots of choice. Every workshop I attended was incredibly useful and has given me a complete boost. The week before the conference I was literally crying that I was a failure and in the space of a few days afterwards I feel extremely confident and positive that I will achieve my goals. Strangely also I have been stopped in the street about my classes and have lots more sign up too. I honestly can’t thank you all so much for giving me the best day I’ve had in a very long time! Each and every single keynote speaker was inspiring. Still cry when I tell people about Drew’s video! Get me on the list for next year please.

The conference was outstanding! Not only did we all get to upskill ourselves from a choice of very informative workshops, but we also had the opportunity to network with other tutors and get a lot of quality information and ideas on how to grow our business.

I found the whole event very useful and helpful. I particularly enjoyed the session with Claire Davies in the morning sessions. Both key note speeches were inspiring and engaging without being cliched. I felt included, my personal needs catered for and informed in every way. Thank you.

Amazing experience from start to finish. Loved the expertise from the speakers. Especially our own Sharon Cawley, leadership from Drew, mindset with Claire, teaching tips from Ilana and financial tips from the Head Office team. Lots of light bulb moments. I got an amazing tutor for my main venue. I loved the fun and bonding we did of an evening. Greet entertainment too. The venue was stunning.
