Testimonials from ISAC conference 2023

The International Schools Asia Conference (ISAC) 2023 provided excellent opportunities to gather market intelligence and network with educators and leaders from across the Southeast Asian region. The intimate and face-to-face nature of the conference was especially welcomed after over two years of virtual events during the pandemic. The conference would be especially beneficial for educational investors, school leaders, international school group CEOs and regional directors, as well as for those working in associated organizations providing products and services to international schools in the region.

I attended this conference and was delighted with the range of topics, the quality of the speakers, and the overall presentation and organization of the event. Bravo! Highly recommended!

This was a very helpful and efficient event. I took away valuable insights from every presentation, and I appreciated the opportunity to connect with interesting people who were willing to share their experience and expertise. Participating in this conference was a very good investment of time and energy.
