Bett 2019 Highlights for Leaders

Leaders within every sector of the education landscape come to Bett to share, network and source solutions to better their institutions and drive change. This year is no exception.

With a focus on the key themes from our research and the outcomes of bi-weekly focus groups we have developed specific content, networking opportunities and features to inspire and support leaders in education.

Highlights include...

“Lunch & Level Up” with Canvas

Canvas will be running two lunchtime roundtable sessions twice a day every day between 11.15 – 13.15 for Senior Leaders, in the Peer to Peer Connect lounge.

So, come, be inspired! and enjoy a delightful lunch whilst spending time with your peers sharing best practice and ideas so that your institution, teaching staff and learners are fully prepared to meet the demands of the constant change that the present and future almost certainly holds.
