Over 40 Bursars, Business Managers & HR staff from 32 COBIS member and non-member schools and organisations attended the COBIS Conference for Bursars, Business Managers & HR Staff. This professional training and networking event was hosted by The British School in The Netherlands in The Hague from 20-21 November 2015.
With a rich variety of sessions and talks on offer, those attending were able share expertise and develop knowledge on new topics. In addition to a number of inspiring keynote plenaries, a wide range of engaging, interactive sessions were also offered, from School Budgeting and Working Towards a Healthy Organisation, to Recruiting in the Digital Age.
As well as networking sessions, delegates, exhibitors and guests enjoyed a dinner on the Friday evening at the Van der Valk Ypenburg Hotel in Nootdorp. This provided colleagues from schools around the world with an excellent opportunity to share their experiences while sampling some of the delicious fare on offer.
COBIS would like to thank colleagues from The British School in The Netherlands for hosting a superb conference as well as the sponsors, speakers and delegates who attended.
