We are delighted to invite you to our next education conference, which will be held on Tuesday 25 April 2017 at Watts Gallery, Compton, Surrey GU3 1DQ.
This is aimed at the School's SLT, the Governing Body and anyone at the school involved in UK and overseas marketing/development. Our keynote speaker is Professor Joe Nellis. Joe is Deputy Director, Professor of Global Economy, School of Management Cranfield University. Joe will look at the economic and political implications of Brexit and President Trump's Presidency and consider how these may impact on independent schools.
Joe's presentation will be followed by what we anticipate will be a lively panel discussion that will drill down to the challenges and opportunities faced by independent schools in this brave new world, during which participation from the floor will be encouraged.
