June 2019 CAPH Conference

The CAPH Summer conference will take place on Friday 14th June 2019 at the Atlantic Hotel in Newquay.  The organisers are combining the conference with the NAHT, so that Paul Whiteman, NAHT General Secretary can give an update.  We have a new format – join us for breakfast from 8.30am onwards, finishing at lunchtime.

As there is an opportunity for only one company to be present and take a short speaking slot, we don’t have a standard online booking form, but you can find out more information here.

The slot is available on a first come, first served basis and will require approval from the organiser. If you would like to take advantage of this then please get in touch with

Chris Lubbe, Inspirational Speaker & Coach, comes highly recommended!

Jon Martin Magic will also be on hand performing some tricks, exploring the links between maths and magic, and how to use magic in the maths classroom.

Chris Lubbe – My Journey from Apartheid to Truth & Reconciliation

Born at a very difficult period in South Africa’s history, Chris made a decision early in his life to become an activist and oppose the racially based system of ‘apartheid’. This decision was to put him on a direct collision course with the ‘apartheid’ regime which resulted in several spells of incarceration, torture and near-death experiences.

After Nelson Mandela’s release in 1990 and the fall of ‘apartheid’, Chris worked with Nelson Mandela until his retirement as a bodyguard and also got involved in the delicate negotiations with the ‘apartheid regime’ resulting in subsequent agreement and the drafting of the new constitution.

At present Chris works within various sectors as a keynote speaker and uses stories from his past to inspire positive change. His talks cover various themes including determination, resilience, courage, humanity, courage and forgiveness. Apart from sharing his own personal story, Chris shares from the many important lessons and anecdotes that he learned from working with Nelson Mandela and Desmond Tutu.

Chris is also a UNICEF Children’s Ambassador and has spoken at various organisations including: Duke of Edinburgh Awards (DOFE), Princeton University, Ricardo, IBM, NHS Scotland, NHS England, Garmin, Board of Education – Canada, Burlington County School District, New Jersey, Blake Morgan Solicitors, International Rotary Conferences, Hospice Isle of Man, The National Solicitors Conference, Hampshire County Council, various schools and Head Teachers Conferences throughout the UK.
