See you in April

I look forward to warmly welcoming you to the University of Kent for the AUDE 2018 conference.

I hope the speakers and topics we have arranged will engage, inform and update you on the current challenges and opportunities across Higher Education Estates and Services. This year, you will hear from Admiral Sir Trevor Soar KCB OBE and endurance record holder, Sir Ranulph Fiennes OBE, along with higher education and external professionals. There will be opportunities to network with suppliers, and of course to catch up with colleagues over a number of social activities, which I hope you will find enjoyable.

I look forward to seeing you in April!

Peter Czarnomski

Director of Estates, University of Kent
