The Bett Asia Leadership Summit is Asia’s meeting place for education decision-makers, educators and education leaders. The demand for an event like this has been building for many years, with education systems across Asia moving from strength to strength and emerging markets gradually implementing more technology into their education systems. The exceptional work which teachers have undertaken to embrace educational revolutions is reflected in the performance of students in the region: 7 of the 10 top-scoring countries in the most recent PISA tests were Asian (OECD).

In order to make Bett Asia as relevant and topical as possible, the team has undertaken extensive research to discover what is influencing education in Asia today.  With so many counties at differing levels of progression, there is a great need for a forum where professionals can meet and learn from one another’s varied experiences and knowledge. Education specialists from Australia might be meeting different challenges to those in Thailand or Sri Lanka, but the need for change is a global issue and one which we must face with a united front. Technology has altered the landscape of learning forever, and by placing the tools of innovation and inspiration into the hands of teachers, decision-makers and other key education professionals, we can ensure that the result of this change is improved student outcomes. 

To this end, I invite you to join us at this truly international event, where we will be roused by some of the most highly qualified professionals for instigating change in young people’s lives: senior government officials, technology experts, professors and teachers are among the leaders of change whom we look forward to hearing from. Through a series of expertly-facilitated interactive workshops, presentations, roundtables and discussions, we will work together to showcase best practice, celebrate innovative products and solutions, and build networks across the education community.
