This year, ’ event was held in Brighton on 8 May in the glorious surroundings of the Royal Pavilion in Brighton.

Over 40 key education leaders from independent schools gathered together in this historical venue to discuss their day-to-day challenges and share best practice. The evening was hosted by TV historian and Joint Curator of the Royal Palaces, Dr Lucy Worsley, who truly brought the history of the Royal Pavilion to life and explored the living habits of people through the ages.


Shabaz Mohammed, Managing Director at Pelican, said: “Pelican provides bespoke food procurement expertise to hundreds of independent schools who manage their own in-house catering. As senior leaders face challenges, they want to exchange their experiences and ideas with their peers.  However, most valuable experiences don’t easily happen in formal settings, but instead in a more casual ‘get-together’ format. That’s why we provide an event to enable bursars meet and learn from each other and create real and genuine relationships.”


The Pelican team will be at the ISBA Annual Conference on stand 64 – visit them to find out how our services and systems can help you achieve the best value, quality and service from suppliers and automate the manual daily tasks of your finance and catering teams.
