For this webinar, we were joined by Dr Tim Hawkes OAM, a well-respected authority on boys’ education, and The Fathering Project founder Dr Bruce Robinson.
After a career in the military and teaching, in 1998, Dr. Hawkes took up the position of Headmaster of one of Australia’s most well-known schools, The King’s School, in Sydney, a position he held until 2017.
A well-respected authority on boys’ education, Dr Hawkes has been an advisor to the Federal Government, serving as a member of the “Forum on the Education of Boys” in 2002. His first book, “Boy Oh Boy” became a best seller and he continues to write and speak extensively on the issue of educating boys. One of his more recent books, “Ten conversations you must have with your son” has also sold well and been translated into several languages.
The father of two daughters as well as a son, Dr Hawkes has also written on raising girls, with his latest book, “Ten Leadership Lessons You Should Teach Your Teenager” being particularly popular with the parents of girls as well as boys. Dr Hawkes has also been active in the area of values education and the development of leadership skills in students. His four book series, “Learning Leadership – a leadership course for secondary students” has become popular in schools throughout the world.
