For Governors, professional support staff and policymakers, the conference provides a forum to share practice and discuss key and emerging areas of governance.

This year, our national conference will focus on 'Professionalising Governance in Higher Education'. It is designed for Governors of HEIs and members of the professional support teams who work with Governors and offers a forum to enable Governors, professional support staff and policymakers to share and discuss key and emerging areas of governance.

The conference will look beyond the sector, addressing practice, developments and insights and exploring whether and how these can be adopted in HE. With a mix of plenary, workshop and panel sessions the event offers an opportunity for those committed to professionalising governance to network with senior peers, engage with the issues of the moment and take new ideas and insights back to their institution.

Delegates will hear from senior leaders who are at the forefront of challenging and changing practice including:

• David Isaac, Chair, University of the Arts London and Chair, Equality and Human Rights Commission; and
• Charlotte Valeur, Chair, Institute of Directors.
