Meet our new Higher Education Advisory Board

The Ahead by Bett Advisory Board is made up of a variety of Higher Education leaders from across the education ecosystem to represent a cross-section of roles. They act as a sounding board for our plans and ideas for the show, as well as helping us shape the programmes to ensure we are meeting the needs of our visitors and exhibitors.
