Frans Johansson

LearningSCAPES 2022 Conference

LearningSCAPES 2022 Conference

Author, entrepreneur, and acclaimed international speaker, Frans Johansson has inspired readers and audiences worldwide with his ideas on leadership, innovation, and diversity, while his practical insights have empowered thousands to take action. In his role as CEO of The Medici Group, Frans has advised executive leadership at Fortune 500 companies such as Disney, IBM, Nike, and Mastercard. His firm recently launched Via Renaissance, a revolutionary Change Acceleration Platform that enables entire divisions to adopt specific changes in behavior on a continual basis.

Frans is the author of The Medici Effect (Harvard Business Press, 2004 & 2017), which innovation legend Clay Christensen described as “one of the most insightful books on managing innovation that I have ever read.” His follow up book, The Click Moment (Penguin Portfolio, 2012) was hailed by Fast Company as the book that challenges traditional business-school thinking, having destroyed the 10,000-hour rule. The Medici Effect has been translated into 21 different languages and become the definitive book on diversity driving innovation, influencing numerous industries and fields such as architecture, design, economic development, education, and investing.

Raised in Sweden by his African-American/Cherokee mother and Swedish father, Frans has lived all his life at the intersection. He has been featured on ABC, CNN, CNBC, the PBS Newshour, and National Public Radio. He has spoken to audiences on six continents, in virtually every industry, and across disciplines, from creatives to engineers, financiers to scientists, and politicians to humanitarians. Frans holds a B.S. in Environmental Science from Brown University and an M.B.A. from Harvard Business School, and currently sits on the Board of Trustees of the New York Hall of Science.

Safety & Security Summit

IMMEDIATELY FOLLOWING LEARNINGSCAPES
SUNDAY, OCTOBER 9, 2022 | 1:00–5:00pm

As school districts continue to focus on learning recovery post-COVID, there is also a paralleled emphasis on safety and security concerns beyond just the physical environment.

Join us for a Safety & Security Summit immediately following LearningSCAPES.

The program will consist of a brief update on A4LE’s Safety & Security Tool Kit that can be accessed through the A4LE website, followed by a update from the Texas School Safety Center, and concluded with two panel discussions focused on Safety & Security. Our goal for the panel discussions is two have representatives from varies sizes of school districts discuss challenges and successes with regards to the physical environment of our schools as well as the behavioral and social/emotional needs and responses to our students and staff.

SCHOOL DISTRICTS PARTICIPATING IN THE SUMMIT:
Representing the very large districts (100,000+ students) will be Cypress-Fairbanks ISD
Representing the large districts (40,000 – 50,000 students) will be San Antonio ISD
Representing the mid-size districts (20,000 – 30,000 students) will be Northwest ISD

Safety & Security Summit

This summit will be held at Brackenridge High School Auditorium, 400 Eagleland Dr, San Antonio, TX 78210.
