ACPME Annual Conference | Dunston Hall, Norwich | 3–6 June 2018

Fit for the future…

#ACPMEConf2018 will bring creative and print managers together from across the UK to discuss and debate how to evolve, diversify and embrace new technologies to be relevant and meet the future needs of their institutions.

Members will share knowledge of their own successes, developments and plans – so every delegate feels supported and aware of opportunities. We’ll be inspired by motivational speakers, hear from leading industry-specific speakers and learn what suppliers have in the pipeline to ensure we innovate, develop and thrive.

Over three packed days delegates will develop skills, expand their network and grow professionally.

Discussion topics will include:

  • getting buy-in from senior management to support investment in new initiatives
  • setting objectives that support and align with university strategy
  • methods of increasing customer satisfaction
  • being prepared to demonstrate relevance
  • the value of transparency
  • diversification and future-proofing

Changes in the HE landscape are massive. So are the opportunities and challenges. Through networking and collaboration, you’ll be armed with the tools to ensure fitness for purpose, mitigate against any challenges and to make strides forward.

Join us in Norwich and get fit for the future

We’ve invested in top-drawer speakers

Chief thinker: international keynote speaker

Dave draws on neuroscience, psychology, biology and behavioural economics. He’s obsessed with creativity – what it is, where it comes from, its role in history, its place in our future, what makes some people more creative than others – and this obsession finds its way into almost everything he does. He’s on a mission to shatter the myths and destroy the mystique around the creative process. And on the way, enable more people to harness their untapped creative abilities and help organisations use it more effectively.
