The conference I did attend on your behalf was that of the National Association of Non-Principals in Norwich last week, and very congenial it was too. The session on portfolio careers run by the dynamic Dr Amanda Kirby was a model of its kind, and the session on family friendly work identified a clear need for greater negotiating skills. Though you can't learn it all from a book, the chapter in the non-principals' new handbook provides some helpful pointers.
