Forum Testimonials

“The MENA HELF conference was a much needed and highly thought-provoking 2 day event that allowed me to truly reflect on the pressing need to fundamentally re-invent our HE systems.  Now is the time for some brave decisions and it was useful to share with other like minded HE leaders.”
