Education Forum 16-17th November – Don’t miss it!

With less than three weeks to go, things are well underway at the Education Forum HQ, ahead of the event taking place on the 16th & 17th of next month.

The team have been working non-stop to ensure a great line up of suppliers, delegates and presentation/seminar speakers for a day and a half of meetings, networking and learning.

Included in the 2 day programme is a host of industry leading professionals eager to share their stories and experiences, including Jack Salter from the Department for Education.

Working most recently as the Head of Commercial Policy, Jack has 30 years of public sector knowledge specifically around procurement and industry buying.

In Jack’s opening presentation, he will cover ‘Recent & forthcoming changes to legislation around spending public money’, exploring the legalities and frameworks behind public spend, as well as discussing different policies and developing current public sector contracts.

Subsequent seminars see the likes of Heather Mitchell from Browne Jacobson LLP discussing ‘Essential employment updates post-election and misconceptions in the management of school staff’, Rob Coulthard of Judgement Index UK Ltd’s ‘Assessing values to improve performance quality and reduce risk, Louise Hosking of Hosking Associate’s sharing ‘CDM 2015: Everything you NEED to know, but are afraid to ask’ and finally Paul Madia of Sacred Heart Catholic Primary School and Blue Sky Teaching Alliance showing ‘How a bespoke eco-building can add more to a school than just extra space.

The Education Forum prides itself on the ability to not only aid in the creation of new contacts, but a day of relevant learnings and meetings, specific to the individual.

Whether you’re a supplier or a delegate, you are guaranteed a tailor-made, unique itinerary of business meetings with those that you are interested in meeting with.

For suppliers, we ensure that all of our delegates are pre-qualified and have an active tender for your products and services and have the seniority to authorise spend.
We do all of the hard work for you – by supplying you with a dedicated meeting stand, which includes furniture, electrics, name board and Wi-Fi, all you need to supply is your best representative and relevant marketing material.

For delegates, we take the time out of endlessly searching for new suppliers that may or may not be relevant to your needs, by putting you in contact with those that are specific to your company’s current and upcoming requirements.

As well as the above, both parties can look forward to a day of networking throughout coffee and refreshments breaks, over lunches and not forgetting our exclusive gala dinner which hosts an evening of entertainment.

We even provide you with overnight accommodation and breakfast to prepare you for your next day of business meetings.
