Higher Education Events take a community to build

“Emma supported our flagship annual event, Wonkfest, bringing together over 700 professionals and speakers from across UK higher education. Delivering a complex project to tight timescales, Emma brought creative problem-solving skills, and calm and confident energy to the project. At every point, we felt that Emma had as much enthusiasm for the success of the event as we did.”

“The University of London engaged Assemble Events to help launch our annual Worldwide Graduation Celebration event. This event created a new opportunity to give graduates and their families the chance to visit the University’s home in Senate House.”

“Emma helped us efficiently deliver our inaugural digital conference, successfully recruiting over 2000 diverse attendees from across the UK higher education sector. The event was organised in just six weeks and Emma helped us to mobilise quickly and professionally, preparing us for the road ahead with strategic guidance and practical support.”
