Book your place at the APM conference

November 15th, 2017

A dedicated conference is taking place next month for all APM staff levels 4 and above, to help celebrate the contribution made by administrative and professional staff at the University of Nottingham.

Sponsored by the Registrar, the one-day conference on Wednesday 20 December will provide a fantastic opportunity to interact with colleagues from professional services and schools right across the University, and to form new relationships with people you might not often have the chance to.

(A separate event for APM staff at levels 1-3 will also be held early in 2018. More details on that event will be made published in the next couple of weeks.)

The conference aims to help all attendees appreciate the critical role that APM staff play in supporting the University’s mission.

The event agenda will include:

  • An address by keynote speaker Eric Stoller, who will aim to challenge conventional thinking on the future of higher education
  • Informative talks by a number of speakers discussing the changing face of the Higher Education sector
  • Insights from several of the University’s senior leaders into the forces that will shape the Higher Education sector, the University and your role in the institution as we move forward in an increasingly competitive world
  • Breakout sessions focusing on helping staff understand the opportunities available to develop their career and professional skills here at the University, as well as opportunities to support their wellbeing

This conference will take place between 9.00am and 4.00pm on Wednesday 20 December, in Business School South on Jubilee Campus. The full detailed schedule will be available shortly on the website for the conference.

You can book your conference place and choose your breakout sessions here.

More details — including venue details — will be published over the next few weeks.

Will there be details added to the breakout sessions to describe what the content is please? It is hard to judge from the titles alone which ones are right for me.

I have tried to register today having successfully logged into the portal but the click here to register link didn’t work for me. Is there an issue with the site currently?

Hi Richard, I’ve forwarded your email onto the team behind the site to assess and they should be in touch with you shortly. If you have any other issues, please let us know. Kind regards – Rebecca

Looking forward to this! I’d echo Drew’s comment on lack of descriptions for breakout sessions though. Keen to book sessions as I’m sure some will max out but hard to make decisions on ones that don’t have ‘Ronseal’ titles. Thanks

I’d also appreciate content descriptions. Getting late in the day and while I’ve booked the main one the breakouts are hard to tell what each are.

Hi Drew, Eleanor and Andrew. We’ve passed on your comments and can confirm descriptions will be added over the course of this week. If you’d like more information in the meantime, please contact Josephine Welham ( Kind regards, Rebecca.

It’s a fortnight to go till the conference and whilst many of the breakout sessions have descriptions 4 or 5 do not. When are all the descriptions expected to be made available please?

Hi Kevin. The organisers have confirmed that all the breakout sessions now have descriptions attached to them. If you would like more detail on anything please feel free to contact Jospephine Welham ( Thanks – Rebecca
