What to expect from AUA 2023

‘Becoming a Higher Education Professional: Continual reinvention in a transforming sector.’ 

Welcome from the AUA Chair and Executive Director

“The enduring nature of being human is to turn into something else” Professor John Kaag, Hiking with Nietzsche 

Since the founding of the AUA, higher education has moved on and developments in our sector are taking all of us to new and exciting places. We are all in an enduring process of reinvention as the world around us transforms, and this includes the AUA and our annual conference. This year, we are doing annual conference differently and delegates will feel this significant difference across the event. We are excited to showcase this change in our exciting modes of session delivery and activities, in a brand new location, with an engaging programme designed to connect delegates and empower you to find your career pathway. 

Our theme for this year is Becoming a Higher Education Professional: Continual reinvention in a transforming sector. Our theme centres on the career pathways of professional staff and explores a continual self-reinvention to navigate a changing and challenging sector. This theme challenges the notion of having a fixed identity as a HE professional and instead offers that our professional self is fluid and in a perpetual state of self-overcoming – always learning, always changing, always growing. In our becoming as professionals we are an active plastic force, a powerful energy that can transform – but we need to be able to imagine, to be creative and to dare to do things differently. 

Our conference setting for this year is the beautiful University of Warwick. Located in Coventry, the birthplace of the UK motor industry, and, legend has it, St. George the dragon slayer and patron saint of England. The AUA Conference is a must for all HE professionals, as individuals and from an institutional perspective. From our excellent programme, delegates will be able to identify, develop and practice the knowledge and behaviours needed to equip themselves for their future in professional services. 

Take this opportunity to engage, learn, network and perhaps, most importantly, celebrate your work. 

It is with pride that we lead the AUA, an organisation with deep roots that nurtures professional growth and transformation. We very much look forward to sharing our own personal growth and transformation as an organisation at our conference this year, where we will unveil the future of the AUA alongside our brand new identity. 

It is a privilege to bring together like-minded professionals as we welcome you all to the University of Warwick. So please take the opportunity to say hello to us during the conference and let us know your thoughts on how everything is going. 

  • Colin Ferguson, Executive Director
  • Vikki Goddard, AUA Chair

Here is what some of our delegates thought of past AUA Annual Conferences:

We’re back and we’re different

This year marks a significant turning point for the AUA as we prepare to launch our new strategic direction. This year’s conference theme focuses on reinvention and transformation in the continual journey of our becoming, both for higher education professionals and the AUA as an organisation that champions and supports this rich and diverse community.

Not only does our theme embrace continual reinvention, but our conference itself has been reinvented based on your feedback. You will notice a new look and feel to our conference, from our impressive new location at the University of Warwick to our range of activities built to help you engage, develop and connect. This year’s conference celebrates the AUA’s beating heart: Our members! We will bring together new and established members at our Sunday Garden Party, included as part of your full conference package.

We will celebrate the presentation of outstanding research and best practice from delegates, including students completing the MSc Higher Education Administration, Management and Leadership programme. These students will receive special recognition for their exceptional work alongside this year’s successful PgCert students at our Awards Celebration Evening at Gala Dinner.

Our programme

As always, we are working hard to ensure that our members experience includes a varied and extensive programme with something for everyone. Please use the link below to access this year’s top-level agenda, with further details of our full conference programme to be confirmed shortly.

AUA Garden Party

Join us on Sunday 2 July for the AUA Garden Party, hosted on the University of Warwick campus. Included with the full attendance package, you’ll be able to have a bite to eat, enjoy a summer refreshment and play garden games.

Our garden party is a great informal networking opportunity for you to get to know colleagues from across the sector and around the globe. You can meet like-minded individuals and make lasting connections for you to share your experiences and learn from each other.

Keynote Sessions

AUA Chair, Vikki Goddard, will open the session with a warm welcome and provide you with key information for the day ahead. We will then hand over to our first keynote speaker, Professor Sasha Roseneil, with further exciting information on her session to be released shortly.

Our second keynote session will take place on Tuesday, 4 July with Professor Dilshad Sheikh. Based on real life experiences of being born in Nairobi, Kenya, brought up in one of the poorest neighbourhoods in the UK and the only one of her siblings to go to university, Dilshad will share her personal account of the challenges and barriers she has faced to progress her career in higher education. Dilshad will also explore practical ways to break down barriers (EDI) and smash through glass ceilings.

Monday Keynote

We are excited to announce our Monday Keynote speaker, Professor Sasha Roseneil. We will be releasing more exciting information on this session soon.

Tuesday Keynote

Join Professor Dilshad Sheikh for ‘How to break down barriers and smash glass ceilings to progress your career in a constantly evolving sector’

Professor Dilshad Sheikh

Arden University

Deputy Pro Vice Chancellor (Academic) / Dean of the Faculty of Business

I have over 20 years of experience in the Higher Education sector gained from multiple roles – these have ranged from teaching in the classroom right through to senior management positions.

I currently hold a dual strategic leadership position as Dean of the Faculty of Business at Arden University and I’m very proud to have been appointed as Arden’s first ever Dean, giving me the exciting opportunity to build a Faculty from scratch. I am also the Deputy Pro Vice Chancellor (Academic) at Arden University.

Born in Nairobi, Kenya, and the youngest of seven children, I have enjoyed a successful career in industry prior to making the jump into academia. Realising this was where I could enact genuine change, I moved across as a result of my desire to help students from widening participation backgrounds achieve their goals and support their communities. I was featured in the publication “We are the City” named as an inspirational woman, have made an appearance on BBC Radio 4 discussing digital technology in Higher Education and have also been a finalist for two consecutive years in the grand prix category of the Education Investor Awards shortlisted as Business Woman of the year (2022) and Business Woman to Watch (2021). Similarly, I was named in the Business Women in Education’s inaugural Women to Watch list in 2022.
I was the winner of the most prestigious CMI Volunteer of the Year Award 2022 having been the former regional chair for the West Midlands and Northwest. I am an inspirational speaker and have a keen interest in the equity, diversity and inclusivity of organisations and have delivered several keynote presentations both locally and nationally as well as published several articles advocating the benefits of diverse and inclusive management and leadership teams. I continue to engage with audiences across a variety of sectors with the ambition to encourage and inspire more females, especially from ethnic minority backgrounds, attaining senior leadership roles.

The session will be a personal account about the challenges and barriers I have faced in Higher Education to progress my professional career. It will be based on real life experiences having been brought up in one of the poorest neighbourhoods in the UK and being born in Nairobi, Kenya. I was the only sibling from seven who had the opportunity to go to university. The presentation will also explore some practical hints and tips to break down barriers and smash through glass ceilings.

Spotlight: Professionals Working in the Third Space

Taking the format of a ‘Fireside Chat’, our expert guest speakers will shine a spotlight on members of staff working in the third space. This fireside chat aims to provide an informal yet structured conversation that is an informative and interesting alternative to traditional presentation or panel formats.

Third space is arguably not a commonly understood nor a consistently used term across the higher education sector, but third space describes actions that occur in between academic and professional areas. Our chat will explore roles in higher education that are considered less constrained and do not fit conventional academic/professional binary descriptors. Higher education is continually transforming, but perhaps, ideas about how universities are structured remain conservative. However, more and more third-space roles are being developed, such as learning developers; careers guidance specialists; counsellors; disability advisors; and widening participation staff.

Our chat will include members’ personal accounts of third space roles and integrated practice to reveal new stories and reflections of the power of working in third space roles. These accounts highlight the challenges, opportunities and benefits for those working in that space and encourage others to see what third space roles offer for career enhancement. Through discussion, the chat aims to address these accounts and determine how organisations like the AUA and Advance HE may work to best support professionals working in third-space roles.

Panel Debate

‘Vice Chancellors – academics do it better. Or do they?’

Join our Honorary President of the AUA, Keith Zimmerman, who will be chairing what promises to be a lively debate!

And this is only a small insight into what this exciting discussion has to offer. Watch this space as we announce further high-profile panellists in the run up to conference!

Amanda Goodall PhD

Bayes Business School

Professor of Leadership

Amanda Goodall PhD is Professor of Leadership at Bayes Business School (formerly Cass). Her main work analyses the relationship between leadership, management and organizational performance. It shows that leaders who have a deep understanding of the core business (‘expert leaders’) are associated with better organisational performance, higher employee job satisfaction and fewer quits.  Being a good manager alone is not sufficient. Evidence supporting the ‘theory of expert leadership’ comes from business, healthcare, universities, Formula 1, basketball, and among professionals.  Amanda has also done important research into gender differences in pay and negotiation, and she writes on diversity more broadly.
Amanda publishes in academic journals, practitioner publications (e.g. HBR) and in the media (e.g. Financial Times).  In June 2023 she releases a business book on her research titled “Credible: The power of Expert Leaders”, with Basic Books and Public Affairs (Hachette). Amanda has been a research fellow at Cornell, IZA Institute of Labor Economics in Bonn, University of Zurich and Yale University. Based on her research, she created the Executive Masters in Medical Leadership a program tailored to the needs of physicians.  Her work is available at
Amanda began her career at 16 in the fashion industry, followed by a decade working with campaigning and charitable organizations, before graduating from the London School of Economics. After a few years working with university leaders she completed her PhD in leadership at Warwick Business School in 2007, which was published in 2009, “Socrates in the Boardroom’, Princeton University Press”.
