Academic Leadership: webinar panel discussion

Join Julia Roberts and Jenny Tester from GatenbySanderson, with guest speakers from across the HE sector, to discuss the role Academic Leaders play in driving forward successful change.

Higher Education is facing a period of change and disruption characterised by funding uncertainty, political shifts, technological disrupters and a changing relationship with students. Significant and large-scale change programmes have become the norm across the sector, with more expected to come.

Following the success of our webinar ‘Academic Leadership: Opportunity or Impediment?’ (email us to request a replay) GatenbySanderson are pleased to host a panel discussion exploring the role of academic leaders in driving forward successful change.

In this panel discussion we will debate and discuss:

  • The role academic leaders can play in implementing organisational change
  • The knowledge, skills and competencies required for academic leaders making changes
  • The tensions and challenges associated with making the tough decisions
  • How academic leaders act as an important bridge to bring academic staff through change

We will be joined by an expert panel including:

  • Kathryn Eade, Strategic Change Lead at The University of Salford and organisational change consultant
  • Richard Grayson, Head of the School of Education, Humanities & Languages, Oxford Brookes University
  • Professor Liz Mossop, Vice-Chancellor of Sheffield Hallam University

Full details:
