HESPA 2019 Annual Conference

‘Value and the Greater Good’

In February we welcomed over 250 delegates to the University of Nottingham for a two day event which included important speakers such as Shearer West, Christine Keller, Ant Bagshaw and many more.

Value and the Greater Good was the title of this year’s event and we examined the multiple and varying interpretations of value in higher education and what they mean to different groups. It continues to be a fascinating time in the sector and, in striving to keep up with external and internal demands, it is critical that we don’t lose sight of our purpose. For this reason, we are very excited to work with more students than we have ever done previously to remind ourselves why we are here and to ensure that the conference theme is properly addressed.

We were thrilled to be at the University of Nottingham’s East Midlands Conference Centre. A purpose-built conference venue with excellent facilities and well located in Nottingham’s beautiful University Park Campus - complete with boating lake and arts centre.
