Testimonials

Don’t just take our word for it. Here’s what your friends and colleagues in the KE community have to say about our past conferences.

 

“PraxisAuril’s KE Matters Celebration was a valuable opportunity to share what the teams at UCLB, Cambridge Enterprise and Oxford Innovations had learned in a year of change and challenge, and to learn from our brilliant colleagues and stakeholders across the sector in turn. For anyone who wants to understand how knowledge exchange is continually helping to move our society forward and achieve real impact, PraxisAuril provides an outstanding and well facilitated forum.”

Anne Lane, CEO | UCL Business Ltd

 

“I had the opportunity to speak as part of one of the panel sessions at the virtual conference in December 2020. It was potentially an intimidating experience, relying on the technology to help me get the message across about innovation and improvisation in response to the Covid-19 pandemic. But thanks to the PraxisAuril team working behind the scenes, we had enough opportunity to rehearse and were confident on the day. The whole event was very well managed, and I was really pleased to have been offered the opportunity.”Jim Fraser, Senior Business Development Manager | Durham University 

 

“The event was a great opportunity to network and catch up with colleagues and hear some fantastic speakers.  Although I missed the opportunity to see people face to face, as the conference was online it meant I could catch up on sessions I missed, by watching the recordings.  This was a real advantage and meant I didn’t have to miss out on any sessions.”

Amanda Selvaratnam, Associate Director of Research and Enterprise | University of York

 

 

“Colleagues from The University of Reading’s Knowledge Transfer Centre actively participated in the PraxisAuril Digital Celebration 2020, presented four times, from developing Thames Valley AI Network, sharing experience of KTP, developing entrepreneurial skills through YES, and even coordinating collaborations in football research! The event was enthusiastically and professionally managed and without doubt we benefited from taking part. We picked up hints & tips from other KE professionals and made some extremely useful connections as a direct result of the talks we gave. We’ll be back again in 2021 for sure!”

Simon Cutler, Business Relationship Manager | University of Reading

 

“The PraxisAuril Digital Celebration was a great way to get an understanding of the different ways Knowledge Exchange professionals develop strategies to work through these uncertain times. It was great to see the innovation and sharing of best practice, and the in-depth discussions were really useful for getting detailed insight. The conference allowed us to refresh our mindset, gave us confidence that we were on the right path and provided us the opportunity for reflection and to consider new pathways for growth.”

Helen Toft, Head of Marketing and Communications (Business Engagement) | University of Birmingham
