Events | 10 Nov 2020

We're excited to be hosting a live panel discussion at the 30th annual Heist Awards Conference, in association with the CIM Higher & Further Education Group.

YouthSight's Managing Director of Research, Josephine Hansom, will be kicking-off the event by hosting a live panel discussion with year 12 and 13 students.

These pre-applicants, selected from our youth research panel, will reflect on how the events of this year and have impacted their educational decisions and what this means for their future university choices.

And if that's not enough for you, there'll be plenty more discussions from other industry experts who share insights into the future of student recruitment. This will be followed by the awards ceremony at 5pm, which will recognise excellence and innovation in education marketing.
