This conference was built to serve higher education leaders.
This remains our core commitment.
Thursday, August 6th, keynotes and interactions with business leaders start your three day conference with an infusion of energy and insight. In the afternoon, higher ed administrators and Santa Barbara tech company professionals present around Salesforce technology. We hope that, for example, a company like Appfolio's innovative use of marketing cloud might influence a higher education shop to think differently about what they're doing.
Friday, August 7th, we exclusively focus on Higher Education. The day is organized into a "Keynote morning" where our conversations center on the "state of education." Alternate between big picture ideas and practical application with your team. Peter Coffee speaks about the "Future of Higher Education," Daman Grewel of CS San Mateo speaks about "Transformation at Scale" to give us insight into how they're managing massive change. As a counterpoint, Westmont students will demonstrate how they are an embodied expression of many of these ideas: imagining then building a brighter future.
Three Pickles Deli, a Santa Barbara favorite, caters our lunch. Meet with colleagues or new friends for conversation and reflection.
After lunch, choose your best-fit higher education discussion track:
Strategy, Student Success, Advancement, and Admissions.
