SDF Conference 2019
Building bridges for emerging futures
Sponsorship Opportunities 2019
Date: 21st and 22nd November 2019
Venue: Hilton, Newcastle
We are now offering exclusive sponsorship opportunities for organisations who would like to support the Annual SDF National Conference, engage with a forward thinking community of learning and development professionals from across the Higher Education and share our community values.
This year’s SDF Conference will focus on five key themes:
- Building connectivity: Build connectivity in times of continuous emerging technologies to help us surface from the silos;
- Rise of the humans: Embrace the rise of the humans and how we can develop ourselves and others further with play, storytelling and active learning;
- Learning playground: Explore tools, techniques and approaches in the safe environment of Staff Development Forum’s learning playground
- Future scanning: Connect with other professionals to collate, make sense and take decisions from data and horizon scanning;
- Celebrate collegiality: Celebrate the value of what staff developers and colleagues outside SDF and the sector do well to develop others.
The Conference attracts colleagues at all levels of the learning and development community. Its main focus is on delegates who are learning and development practitioners within the Higher Education sector. Delegates not only influence strategic direction, but are focused on pragmatic development issues and actions.
The Conference gives access to a platform for organisations supplying of services to the Higher Education sector to develop new contacts, promote their products through sponsorship and reinforce existing relationships. Conference suppliers are more likely to meet the staff who are directly using their services and products and ideally positioned to receive feedback from their existing clients.
