On 20-21 November 2018, GuildHE members came together for GuildHE’s Annual Conference and AGM 2018, Higher Education: Transforming Places, at Abertay University, Dundee.

Members discussed everything from what characteristics are vital for good leaders, to whether or not the UK can really claim to have a single HE system. Keynote speakers Nicola Dandridge (CEO, OfS) and Lord Watson of Invergowrie (Lords Shadow Education Minister) explored the complex administrative and political context in which higher education is operating.

The highlight of the conference was the dinner and drinks reception with took place at V&A Dundee and the neighbouring Discovery Point (home of the RSS Discovery).
