‘Lifelong Learning and one step ahead Business.

The necessity to move with the times’

The Annual Summing up Meeting of the Academic Union and the Global Club of Leaders Members, Honourable Professors, Rectors of regional Universities and Educational management professionals.


Oxford Town Hall is awaiting the grand-scale networking event and magnificent Socrates Award Ceremony that marks the beginning of the Christmas and New Year holidays!

To visit Oxford during the pre-Christmas time is a great occasion to discuss topics of interest regarding modern educational systems, innovations in the science sphere and strategic visions of modern business growth.

We will provide the speakers, academics and business executives with two side-discussion panels for fruitful dialogue on the subject of the educational sphere’s improvement and methods of profitable entrepreneurship. 

For the first time we are going to launch WEBCASTING as well as a LIVE BROADCAST of the Summit’s sessions and Socrates Award Ceremony to make the event even more open and borderless!

In the Summit’s context we also welcome the holding of the ‘Oxford Debate’, really special discussion platform for experts, ‘heavyweights’ and regional leaders of the educational services market. ‘How do you see the University of Future?’ – we would like to get your opinion on it. 

In addition, the Summit’s participants will have an opportunity to enjoy an exclusive art project Oxford through the eyes of modern artists’, where all paintings will show Oxford’s flavour in the most non-traditional ways. 


During the sessions we intend to speak about:
