WHAT IS DIFFERENT ABOUT THIS CONFERENCE?

Recent research conducted by HEI and others has confirmed the need for specialized entrepreneurial and innovation training for college and university presidents.  Higher education is changing so rapidly and radically that new types of proactive intervention are essential in sustaining the health of any institution.  This conference focuses on the most essential specialty areas. It is also delivered in the most requested formats and timetables.  Busy presidents want shorter events and presentations with more relevant, essential, useful, and applicable.  They need to drink from the water of new trends, solutions, and findings, but they prefer to drink from the firehose.  We believe this conference is planned to be packed with much of the most needed and valuable information, and it will all be delivered in less than 24 hours. They asked, we deliver.
