Annual Conference & AGM

The English UK Annual Conference & AGM 2018

Thursday 17 May

The Tower Hotel London

The English UK Annual Conference is one of the highlights of the English UK calendar, giving our members the chance meet, help shape the association and receive key updates on strategy, statistics and wider trends in UK ELT.

The day will open with the launch of the annual statistics report with expert analysis and Q&A with the report's authors StudentMarketing, followed by a review of the year and English UK's future strategy with Chief Executive Sarah Cooper and the formal AGM.

After lunch, Alastair Dryburgh will lead an innovation workshop and deliver the keynote session 'Getting unstuck: finding and unlocking growth potential.' The day will close with a drinks reception.

What do delegates think?

  • "Incredibly relevant, appropriate and informative. I returned from the conference full of ideas... English UK has demonstrated that it is an organisation in touch with its members needs and wants and that is actively responding to them." - Peter Hayes, director at IH Manchester
  • "It's a great opportunity to network with other ELT senior professionals and pick up the gossip. Also to learn what English UK has been doing the previous year." - Judy Loren, principal at Excel English
