Guest Speaker

Director of the Future Schools Alliance, Peter Hutton has been a school leader in four state and independent schools for the last 25 years. His strength is transformational insight and HOW to implement change in schools. Additional areas of expertise include change management, student entrepreneurship, alternative tertiary pathways, supporting dyslexic students and futurism.

Peter was appointed Principal of Templestowe College (TC) in 2009. It was a “broken” school with just 286 local students and 23 Year 7s. Today, TC has over 1,150 students and has recently been recognised by Finland’s HundrED organisation as one of the most innovative schools in the world.

As a person with dyslexia, Peter sees the world differently, and has spent his life challenging assumptions and conventions. Drawing on the latest research and proven methodologies, Peter is committed to working with other school leaders to significantly improve the lives of young people by transforming the education system to equip students for times of exponential change.
