    Programme and speakers

    AMOSSHE National Conference 2022

    The theme of the conference is Think Differently. With over 40 in-person sessions to choose from, plus seven online virtual sessions, and over 60 speakers, this is our richest conference to date, with plenty of opportunities to think differently about:

    • How our services meet the needs of students, and manage demand and expectations.
    • The way we work as individuals and how our teams work together.
    • Relationships between students, universities and the wider community.
    • Culture and behavioural change.
    • How we can make a difference - what can we do and what do we influence?
    • Innovative ideas that you've undertaken or you’d like to take forward.
    • Learning from failure - what lessons have you learned from things you tried, but that didn't work out?

    The conference is chaired by AMOSSHE Executive Members Claire Slater (Director of Student Life and Wellbeing, University of Bristol), Chris Warrington (Head of Student Support, University of Leeds) and Craig Best (Head of Division, Student and Academic Services, The University of Manchester).
