English UK South West Conference Coming to Millfield!

Every year English UK South West holds its annual conference and AGM at one of the member centres in the South West. This year the conference will be held here, at Millfield. The conference is open to all English UK South West members and anyone interested in the ELT sector.

The conference will include a great range of speakers including the acclaimed writer, editor, lecturer and broadcaster, David Crystal. David's talk "Eloquence for All" will focus on analysing the myths and realities surrounding the notion of eloquence, illustrating the techniques successful speakers use, and suggesting ways in which anyone can improve their public speaking.

Another speaker for the day is principal of Oxford College International summer programme for SBC, Thom Jones, who also runs his own company, Brock Solutions Agency. Thom's talk, titled "In the ever shifting sands of international education how do we get to the oasis of solid ground and certainty?" will focus on how, as an industry, we can cope with external factors such as Brexit and America First, how we can show that each of us is different from each other (or if we even are truly different) and what we need to sell to promote our different language schools.

The day will also include a range of engaging and interactive sessions focusing on Business English, Student Services, Marketing, Management and Teaching CPD.

There will be a range of exhibitors with their latest brochures, manuals and resources: Bournemouth English Book Centre, Cambridge English Assessment, Cambridge University Press, Delta/Klett Publishing, Express Publishing, Macmillan Education, National Geographic Learning, Oxford University Press, Reallyenglish and StudyTravel

Each EUKSW member school is offered 4 free tickets, all other tickets cost £30. To book please visit englishuksouthwest.com/annual-conference-agm/
