2019 Annual Conference

2019 Annual Conference

10-12 November, Hilton Newcastle Gateshead

‘Equipping Ourselves: Onwards and Upwards’

We are delighted to present the programme for the 2019 ARC Conference and hope you are able to join us in Newcastle.

We have responded to the feedback from last year and this time have a mixture of speakers and breakout sessions, where we can discuss themes together and at the same time learn from and support each other. Hence, the title of this year’s conference: Equipping Ourselves: Onwards and Upwards.

Not only do we have lots to offer as part of the programme, but we will also be at the Baltic Centre for Contemporary Art for the conference dinner, as well as offering a bus tour of Newcastle-upon-Tyne. With the guest speakers and self-help sessions, we aim for you to feel equipped so you can move onwards and upwards with all the challenges that you face.

ARC Conference 1-1 Development Sessions

Alongside the traditional conference programme, we are once again offering colleagues the opportunity to have a 1-1 development session with a qualified Executive Coach.

Such was the demand for sessions in 2018 that we will have two coaches available this year. Rachel Holmes – who many of you will remember from the 2017 and 2018 conferences – will be joined by fellow Executive Coach and colleague Kim Newton-Woof.

Rachel and Kim will be available for a series of 1-1 sessions, designed to enable you to explore personal/career/team development needs in confidence. Past topics have included career options, influencing upwards and getting the best from your team. Both Rachel and Kim have extensive experience in HE, working with individuals and teams to improve performance and enjoyment at work.

Session times will be announced closer to the conference and are offered on a first-come, first-served basis, at times designed to complement the conference programme.

We hope to see you there. See the full conference programme HERE.
