The 4th annual efficiency conference was held on Wednesday 25 March, with more than 20 speakers from across the higher education sector. Here are three blogposts written for Efficiency Exchange by three of the star speakers from the Universities UK event.
Alison Johns, chief executive of the Leadership Foundation, challenged delegates to capture people’s “imagination and excitement” when trying to encourage culture change. Read her post on the role of leadership in the efficiency agenda.
The workshop on FX Plus, the shared services delivery partner of Falmouth University and the University of Exeter, was a sell-out. Those who weren’t lucky enough to be in the room can read project manager Simon Perks’ blog about an exciting new project to measure, analyse and model the costs and benefits of collaboration between UK higher education institutions.
Nick Petford, vice chancellor at the University of Northampton, brought the day to a close with a stirring speech on leading the delivery of a radical new vision for a university campus. Earlier this year, in his capacity of head of Procurement UK, he blogged for us about the challenges for universities in procurement.
