HEDx Conferences

HEDx 2024/5 Conferences are held in spring and autumn at major venues in Australian capital cities. The precise timing, venue and topics reflect the ongoing feedback from current members, and the realisation of opportunities and priorities as they arise from policy reviews and the ongoing fast-paced technological and equitable development of the landscape of higher education globally.


Coaching and executive and academic advisory services are supporting global leaders, higher education providers, and tech companies, and suppliers and their associations, to navigate change that the sector is facing.


With 3 major books, more than 100 opinion pieces, and keynote and executive presentations, HEDx has the leading global curated resource centre of content about change and innovation available to be read, heard or presented.


HEDx brings the opportunity for debate about the future of the sector, and a place for the exploration and sharing of ideas from the leading thinkers in the sector, globally curated and commented on by HEDx and its partners. This includes invited co-hosts from member institutions and corporate partners. Exemplary global and Australian sector leaders, innovators, and employers, share insights in episodes as a unique source of ideas and new sector thinking.


HEDx conferences explore and challenge current policy, economic and social context and university culture. The HEDx team sources leading local and international talent, before curating and facilitating a meaningful and practical dialogue aimed at shifting and shaping university strategy, culture and student experience.
