About this Event
Take advantage of this exclusive AUA membership benefit and join us at our 24th Annual Lecture. This year, we are delighted to be joined by the Director of HEPI, Nick Hillman to bring you a frank and open discussion alongside AUA’s honorary president Dame Shirley Pearce and AUA’s Chair and the Director of College Operations at Brunel University, Amanda Oliver, about the challenges and opportunities facing the HE sector today.
Between them, Nick, Shirley and Amanda represent a breadth of perspectives from across the sector, and they will each discuss and highlight upcoming challenges and opportunities that they see ahead for the sector and what this means for universities and HE Professionals.
The audience will then be invited to ask the speakers questions about the views they have discussed, as well as defining moments that have helped shaped their own careers. This lecture will leave you feeling informed, engaged, and ready to take on the challenges and opportunities ahead.
Although I have enjoyed attending in person in the past, the online event this year enabled me to attend and fit around other commitments.
It’s not always possible to attend sessions that have to be paid for, or that take a long time. A one hour free of charge session is a great opportunity for everyone to connect and engage with the AUA.
With the Annual Lecture taking place online this has allowed it to be opened up to a wider of audience, especially those who were not able to attend the conference or would have been able to, such as myself.
It was an excellent, thought-provoking, relevant lecture.
