XSEED Education Conference is the leading forum in Asia to experience cutting-edge thinking and pragmatic solutions on how best to equip your school for the future. Over 5,000 school leaders have participated in our conferences in the past and have engaged with thought and action leaders such as Howard Gardner, Peter Senge, Tony Wagner, and Pasi Sahlberg.
