Great feedback from Festival of Higher Education 2018

We’ve had great feedback from all of our Festival of Higher Education delegates who told us our range of debates and talks were what they enjoyed most about the event.

One of the most popular debates was Rt. Hon David Willetts and Lord Adonis on the subject of fair funding but many also enjoyed the HEPI debates and the Claire Fox, Director of the Academy of Ideas panel. We were extremely pleased to receive positive feedback about all our speakers.

Other comments were that guests enjoyed being able to mingle and network in the beautiful riverside university campus experiencing the friendly festivalesque atmosphere, delicious food and live-band. The informality and style of sessions allowing guests to interact with a wide range of speakers with dedicated time at the end of each session for a Q&A, was something that appealed to a lot of delegates.

Comments included:

“I really enjoyed the discussions and learnt a lot from them. Interesting people with interesting views.”

“The festival was interesting especially because of how the sessions were structured. Unlike HE conferences with just ‘one theme’ it was valuable to hear different topics about issues effecting the sector.”

“What I liked most about the festival was the informality and chance to hear from a wide range of speakers on a variety of topics.”
