Hosted Leaders Programme

Connecting global educator leaders with relevant learning and technology providers through carefully curated 1:1 meetings

Our Hosted Leaders Programme matches school, university and government leaders with thoughtfully selected education solution providers to discover innovative new products and services, via 15 minute face-to-face meetings. 

Meetings will take place at designated times throughout 19-21 January 2022, alongside the Bett and Learnit events at the ExCeL London.

Meeting the right people - How does the programme work?

Each meeting is based on both parties’ mutual interest. We only match meetings where this is value for both the educator leader and the solution provider.   

Participating educator leaders identify challenges they are trying to overcome and products and services they are looking to source, and solution providers request meetings with relevant leaders who are actively searching for the products and services they deliver. No random meetings or forced connections, just high-quality conversations between two parties who are perfectly matched to do business.   

Spaces are limited so please be sure to book your place as soon as possible. This initiative provides tangible ROI for both education solution providers and the world's most inspiring educator leaders... but don't take it from us, hear it directly from those who took part previously.

Frequently Asked Questions

When will my meetings take place? 

All meetings take place at designated times during the Bett and Learnit events, 19-21 January 2022.  

How do you decide who meets with who? 

Educator leaders will receive a series of recommended solution providers to meet with, based on the interests profile they complete. Education solution providers have the chance to accept/decline these meetings, and both solution providers and educator leaders have the chance to select additional meetings with anyone who matches their interests using our purpose-built platform. Meetings are only matched and confirmed where both the leader and the solution provider have said ‘yes’ to each other, and they have mutual availability.  

Are these meeting physical or virtual? 

The Hosted Leaders Programme for 2022 will be physical and will take place alongside Bett and Learnit in halls S1 and S2. 

Who are Learnit?  

Learnit is the global community for educator leaders driving impactful change which culminates each year in a 2 day summit alongside Bett. From 2022, Learnit will run next to Bett.
