It seems like people who work in marketing or other business services are spoiled for choice when it comes to choosing live industry events they can attend. School business managers (SBMs), on the other hand, have fewer options available to them. This is where EdExec LIVE comes in.

EdExec LIVE is an independent event aimed specifically at bursars and school business managers, so you can be sure you’ll benefit greatly by attending. Parago will be speaking and exhibiting at the North edition of the show, after a very successful showing at the London event this summer.  ExExec themselves described Parago’s seminar by saying it “went down a storm”, while the audience found our insights “though-provoking” and the presentation “interactive”.

The North event takes place in Manchester on December 2nd, but what else can you expect from the event? Let’s take a look.

What’s on?

As this event prides itself on giving delegates plenty of useful insights, you won’t find any filler content at EdExec LIVE North. Instead, you’ll only be exposed to highly-relevant information to SMBs; tangible insights you can take back and apply to your school.

The interactive learning experience and fast-paced environment is perfect for SBMs. At the event you’ll find plenty of case studies and seminars, as well we key speakers throughout the day, all of whom will give you valuable information.

You’ll find plenty of useful companies exhibiting – including Parago.
