This term we are attending 3 conferences in 3 different countries.

After having a break from events over the summer months, in October we’re back attending some of the best conferences around the world for the Independent and International school sector.

Our Sales Team is ready to meet customers, partners, and likeminded people to discuss education and all things EdTech. Conferences are a great excuse to meet lots of new people and share great conversation, so we can’t wait to attend.

We will be attending Enlightened Education, Future Facing and EARCOS, and for those unfamiliar with them, here’s an overview.

Enlightened Education – joint HMC/ IAPS Conference – Edinburgh 2022

This will be taking place Wednesday 5th to Friday 7th October at Edinburgh International Conference Centre. It’s a joint conference from IAPS and HMC which will bring many people together from all types of Independent Schools sector.

“Our conference theme, Enlightened Education, draws on the role of Edinburgh as an influential city of the European Enlightenment. It will also draw on the areas UNESCO identifies as the entitlement of every child to experience in their education. We will see the theme reflected in many ways throughout the conference programme, not least in the questioning and empirical spirit that we trust our speakers and panellists will promote by their contributions. Our aim is to ensure they prove as diverse, provocative and engaging a group as has ever been brought together for one of our conferences.” More information here.

WCBS Sales Director, John Cannon and Regional Manager Oliver Rhodes will be on Stand 54 at this not-to-be-missed event!

Future Facing – ISBI Marketing and Admissions Conference

Next up we’re heading to ISBI Marketing and Admissions Future Facing Conference being held at Sherborne School, Dorset, Monday 17th and Tuesday 18th October. It’s going to be of great interest to Marketing, Admissions and Communication teams within Independent and International Schools.

“Our first major ‘in person’ event taking place since the pandemic, ‘Future Facing’ promises to be the best yet with a busy programme featuring a fantastic line-up of speakers from schools of all types and sizes (5 Keynotes + 1 Keynote Seminar + 20+ Workshops…) and delegates from schools and colleges around the world participating and contributing.” Details here.

For this event, John will be joined by another member of the team – do come along and pitch them some questions about our brand new Admissions CRM!

EARCOS – Annual Leadership Conference

Our final conference this term is in Thailand! The East Asia Regional Council of Schools (EARCOS) 52nd Annual Leadership Conference is Thursday 27th until Saturday 29th October at the Shangri-La Hotel, Bangkok.

“We have a host of excellent keynote speakers and workshop presenters. The conference will be professionally stimulating and will offer you rich opportunities for networking and camaraderie.” Read more.

John and Oliver can’t wait to catch up with delegates from the region and learn more about the information management needs of International schools within Asia.

We hope to see as many school leaders as possible interested to find out what solutions we have to help manage their school at these events. So, if you’re attending and would like to meet up please email us or book a meeting….. we look forward to seeing you.
