2018 Winter conference

21st Century University Workplace

Eat | Live | Work | Play

Hosted by Leeds Beckett University

The university workplace is transforming – digitally, culturally and structurally. For senior managers, keeping on top of the latest trends and thinking on workplace design and culture is the only way to ensure our individual, team and university's success.

So for the 2018 CUBO winter conference programme, we’ve brought together an outstanding group of experts, who will take you through working smarter with technology, emerging food trends, creating engaging workplaces, customer service, multi-tasking and 21st century leadership.

Campus life is about eating, living, working and playing together, and what better way to demonstrate the importance of play in the life of staff and students than an energiser from Carnegie Great Outdoors and a truly motivational session from the extraordinary Yorkshire Rows. We finish by taking up the oars ourselves in aid of charity!

As ever, networking with colleagues from other universities will yield ideas, tips and sector updates. There’s also plenty of time to meet key corporate partners providing business solutions for the 21st century university. And you’ll be able to catch up on CUBO developments too.

It’s all happening very conveniently at Leeds Beckett’s conference centre just a few paces from your hotel and walking distance from the main station.
