Testimonials

I had a fantastic time speaking and participating at the Outstanding Schools conference in Dubai. The speakers were insightful and the roundtables offered great networking opportunities. I wished I had brought my team to open them up to the professional development possibilities at the conference.

This conference is exactly what leaders in education have been waiting for. The topics covered were thought provoking with engaging speakers and professionals from the region. It is the first conference I have attended where the ‘norms’ were truly challenged, forcing principals and other leaders to really consider the practice taking place within their international schools.

It was a pleasure to be part of the first face-to-face Outstanding Schools Middle East Conference. As part of the Steering Committee, it was excellent to see the discussions that we had come to life in this wonderful and very relevant conference. Held in an excellent venue, with world-renowned keynote speakers and panel discussions and roundtable conversations lead by leading international school leaders from across the region, the conference provided outstanding insight and update on the relevant issues and challenges faced by international schools. The vibrant discussions, networking with colleagues and input from exhibitors supplemented the workshop sessions and keynote addresses and made for an excellent conference experience in an exquisite venue.
