One of the nice things about conferences like this is that when you work, you tend to be quite focused on what you’re doing. Then you come to somewhere like The PIE Live and you realise that there are so many other possibilities as well, and it broadens out what you’re thinking about and what you’re tackling.

It has been terrific to come together with colleagues from across North America to learn about insights, challenges and opportunities in North American higher education. Understanding the similarities we face in terms of growth and collaboration, and learning from each other to get over some of the challenges we face in both of our education systems. Well done to The PIE!

If there is anyone who knows how to throw an event it is The PIE. It was wonderful to join the Canadian Village and speak with our international colleagues about common challenges and collaborative solutions. In my experience, PIE Live events have some of the most motivational and exciting speakers.
