    The event was truly international and covering a wide range of interest and sectors. It is important to challenge conventional wisdom on education at all levels in the 21st century and most importantly to envisage new solutions.
    The Oxford Summit leaders give the opportunity to do just that.

    We found this to be a valuable forum to make contacts with people from 23 other countries, decision makers who want to conduct business within the UK. In this time of globalisation we need forums such as these to facilitate dialogue and opportunity. The presence of interpreters was so important in removing the language barriers. Well done EBA.

    I am very impressed with the work the Oxford Summit of Leaders do to bring a diverse range of participants from across the Globe together to exchange knowledge, experience and ideas. The number and mix of participants from academia, government and business, and the open and welcoming atmosphere at Summit events is a model of good practice.
