AUDE 2021 Supporters 

AUDE 2021 can only happen thanks to the broad range of HE supporter companies and organisations that work with us throughout the year and at our conference. We can't thank all the supporters enough who have been with AUDE from the start of the lockdown, they have offered support by running webinars for AUDE members, attended regional meetings, supporting our events, ran surveys, published and shared insightful reports and offered advice and guidance for AUDE and our members. We couldn't put on the events that we offer without their support, thank you to all the supporters patience over the last year it has been a roller-coaster and we are very grateful that you are part of conference.
