Hosted Leaders Programme

Hosted Leaders Programme

Connecting Educator Leaders with Solution Providers

Brought to you by Bett and Learnit, our Hosted Leaders Programme has since been improved for Bett 2023 and will connect global school, university and government leaders with relevant and thoughtfully selected Education Solution Providers through carefully curated 1:1 meetings.

"The meetings are brilliant, such a great way to do this type of thing!"

- Philippa Wraithmell, Head of Digital Learning, Cranleigh Abu Dhabi

Meeting the right people

How does the programme work?

Participating educator leaders identify challenges they are trying to overcome and products and services they are looking to source, and education solution providers request meetings with leaders who are actively searching for the products and services they deliver.

No random meetings or forced connections, just high-quality conversations between two parties who are perfectly matched to do business. This invaluable initiative provides tangible ROI for all participants. The event has sold out for the previous four years, so book early to avoid missing out.

When will my meetings take place? 

All meetings take place at designated times during the Bett and Learnit events, 29-31 March 2023.  

How do you decide who meets with who? 

Educator leaders will receive a series of recommended solution providers to meet with, based on the interests profile they complete. Education solution providers have the chance to accept/decline these meetings, and both solution providers and educator leaders have the chance to select additional meetings with anyone who matches their interests using our purpose-built platform. Meetings are only matched and confirmed where both the leader and the solution provider have said ‘yes’ to each other, and they have mutual availability.  

Are these meeting physical or virtual? 

The Hosted Leaders Programme for 2023 will be physical and will take place alongside Bett and Learnit in halls S1 and S2. 

Who are Learnit?  

Learnit is the global community for educator leaders driving impactful change which culminates each year in a two-day summit. From 2023, Learnit will run alongside Bett. Find out more about Learnit here
