IH Directors’ Conference 2018

Sofia, Bulgaria
5-8 May 2018

Join us in Sofia for the IH Directors' Conference 2018 

The Directors’ Conference affords an opportunity for those who own or manage IH schools to invest time in their own personal development and leadership skills, hear from industry experts, and share their own knowledge with one another. It is also a time for celebrating the IH network, highlighting everything we have achieved in the previous year, and informing our strategy for the future. 

Watch this testimonial video to find out why IH school directors find the conference so valuable. 

Our 2018 conference will be held at the Grand Hotel Sofia, a hotel steeped in history with a picturesque location right in the heart of Sofia next to the pretty City Garden. We have negotiated a very reasonable room rate and there area also a number of very low cost options within walking distance.

Conference Programme 

We  have some great external speakers lined up including marketing expert Jackie Kassteen from Jackfruit Marketing and Loraine Kennedy, who many of you will know as a management coach. Plus there will be sessions on digital marketing, online provision and the client experience.

An essential part of the event is the IHWO Ltd AGM and Business Meeting which will take place on Tuesday 8th May. This is when IH schools will have the opportunity to exercise their rights as shareholders and discuss future plans.
