HEDx Challenge Conference (March 2023)
The HEDx Challenge Conference explored and challenged current thinking, strategy and culture in the higher education sector. The conference featured a wide range of global thought leaders from within the sector and from leading ed tech and professional services firms.
The first conference theme was ‘challenge’ and the interrogation of the current operating models in universities to inspire new thinking and solutions to benefit more open access to sustainable practices and other commitments to purpose in higher education that can lead to success for individual universities and the sector as a whole.
HEDx Mid Year Conference (July 2023)
The HEDx Mid Year Conference investigated the Australian Universities Accord and facilitated discussion with HEDx members and leading sector commentators and advisors.
The conference was an opportunity to bring international thought leadership together with local expertise in shifting the higher education experience to a more equitable, inclusive, purposeful and sustainable position.
The governance of a university’s reputation, brand and culture is imperative to its health and performance. Many higher education institutions have recently transformed their executive teams as the sector rapidly moves towards a fast-paced, uncertain future. HEDx advisory services support councils and executive teams in strategy and critical decision making. Our research capability across the sector and in other fields provides our clients with deep insights accompanied by validated strategic recommendations.
Importantly, HEDx advisory services remain agnostic and passionately collaborative with our clients existing and potential partners. This facilitates productive cooperation and enables open leverage of key insights into performance-based solutions.
