150 delegates, speaker and sponsors took part in the virtual COBIS Conference for Bursars, Business Managers and HR Staff, 3-5 February 2021. Participants included delegates from more than 60 schools in 40 different countries. The programme included sessions on international safer recruitment, diversity and inclusion, wellbeing, operational responses to Covid-19, the future of teacher recruitment, and much more. We are grateful to our headline sponsors, iSAMS, our other conference sponsors, and all of the participants and presenters who took part in this three-day event.
