RSAcademics Team Conference 2018

RSAcademics held its third annual Company Conference on Tuesday 11th September at the Mary Ward House in Central London.  The conference brought together the team of 80 school specialists working across our wide range of service areas. 

The focus for the day was to review and learn from last year and share our plans for the coming 12 months.  We also invited several school governors to join us for a discussion about the challenges uppermost in their minds as we move in to 2019.

The Mary Ward House is a dedicated conference venue that has philanthropy and social well-being as its central ethos.  The venue provided the ideal backdrop for a productive and thoroughly enjoyable day.
