|The Beadmore Conference Centre|
I have just returned from the CHEIA Annual Conference held at the Beardmore Conference Centre in Glasgow.
The three day event was very well attended with delegates from all over the UK and some fantastic speakers including Heather Lang, Fraud Prevention and Detection Manager at the Student Loans Company, Julian Knight, Assurance Consultant at the Higher Education Funding Council for England, Derek Waddell, CEO Edinburgh research and Innovation Ltd, Paul Wickens, Chief Executive of Enterprise Shared Services at Northern Ireland Civil Service, Dr Veena O’Halloran, Director of Student Experience and Enhancement Services at Strathclyde University and other interesting speakers.
The excellent conference was a real credit to the members who had put a lot of work into its organisation and particular thanks to Hamish McKay from Edinburgh University who was very welcoming and energetic throughout.
Next year’s Annual Conference is to be held at Warwick.
