"This is my third event and even as a fairly experienced SBL I always get something out of the event, be it a new way of doing something, a new idea, a new contact or even a new friend."

EdExec LIVE: Who we are

In case you are not familiar with us here at Education Executive – or EdExec – we are education specialists, in particular, school business management specialists, talking to school business leaders (SBLs) and school business managers (SBMs) who are responsible for business and financial management in schools. 


We produce a carefully curated portfolio of resources that supports and informs the SBL community across the UK’s schools and academies. 

Events are one of those resources.

Our events brings together SBLs in an environment that promotes discussion and networking and learning. The secret to our success is ensuring we offer a truly targeted and truly  bespoke to our delegates.

Our events are specifically aimed at school business managers and leaders, finance directors and ICT Managers - offering an interactive learning and networking experience quite different to other conferences.

Here at EdExec we champion the role of the SBL and the event gives us the opportunity to bring together the SBL community in-person to benefit from a day of CPD.
