Highlights from the 2017 WLSA Conference
“The 2017 WLSA Conference was forward thinking and proposed tangible solutions to the education sector and its growth in the 21st Century and beyond. Not only did the conference bring elite collegiate admissions deans, professors/teachers, and business people from multiple countries of each continent together in order to sync and push global education forward but the conference also provided an intimate setting, allowing us to network on a more effective level.”
“This conference brings together the principals and educational experts from famous middle schools and famous universities in China and abroad, and has conducted in-depth discussions on school management, risk management, student leadership and effective guidance of education in the context of educational globalization. The Conference was rich in content merging different points of view and wisdom. It was a fruitful and very successful event!”
"To attend a conference with such a mixed group of people with different interests on one level but one common goal on the other, international education is simply world-class thinking! All Presenters, Panelists and Moderators were awesome and shared practical ideas. As a first timer to the lovely city of Shanghai, WLSA picked the perfect location to host such a WORLD class event....simply a stellar conference!"
