Reviews from past participants

Great way to network with professionals and share current/up to date pedagogies within China specifically. Very useful 2 days for any leader in China.

Dulwich International
Well organized; Very pertinent Chinese topics and excellent selection of presenters and panelists.

St Maur International School
I believe this is a good conference, and should be carrying on next year.

Beijing SMIC Private School
Very effective format. I learned much more than I have in other conferences. Having a small group of China experienced administrators provides relevant information and dialogue.

Chenshan School
I have found the event to be stimulating great connections and ideas.
