– Thank you for the Growth Mindset webinar! It was extremely helpful and eye-opening. I’d like to thank James and the team at Infinite Learning for taking the time to deliver this webinar and answer related questions. – Batool Hasan, Bahrain
– James Anderson is ‘a natural’ in front of the camera – we all felt we were in the room with him despite being miles apart! His delivery is relaxed yet engaging and one feels immediately at ease and fully involved. He is clearly extremely knowledgeable in his field and, as attendees, we were instilled with a great sense of confidence that we were learning from an expert who has ‘walked the walk’ and not someone who just ‘talks the talk’! His findings are based on in-depth research and he was extremely generous to share multiple resources with us for free. Ultimately, it was a fun, thought-provoking webinar which left us wanting to know more and wanting to learn about Growth Mindset in greater depth. Thank you James! – Brenna Candace
– The content and delivery was professional, thought provoking and inspiring. This has definitely impacted on the way I will lead my school into the future.
