About the 2019 leadership summit

The fifth annual Bett Asia Leadership Summit took place on 12-13 March 2019. This was a world-class, cutting-edge conference that showcased best practice and celebrated innovation from across the industry. The key theme for 2019 was 'Building a change culture to deliver 21st century learning'. The Summit’s agenda was tailored for senior education leaders, educators and innovators, and was put together through months of in-depth research.

Our experts explored topics nominated by policy and decision makers from K-12 to TVET which addressed key opportunities to improve education systems and further student outcomes across the region. The Morning keynotes were delivered by high-level speakers, followed by afternoon breakout streams of workshops, demonstrations, discussions and presentations.
