Vic Goddard featured in TEDxNorwichED’s Speaker Spotlight Series

01 June 2016

Vic Goddard, author of The Best Job in the World and star of the BAFTA nominated Channel 4 documentary Educating Essex, was a speaker at the TEDxNorwichED event on the 19th of March, where he shared his ˜ideas worth sharing™ about education and offered his own interpretation on the ˜Think Differently™ theme.

Vic was a great hit on stage as he reflected upon lessons learnt about his school, teaching and the world in general through letting ˜Reality TV™ in while drawing some meaningful, insightful and important conclusions (you can watch his talk here), and has since been featured in a ˜backstage-style™ interview with Leah Stewart as part of TEDx™s Speaker Spotlight Series.
