In keeping with the 2020 Conference theme – The Future in Focus, Amy’s keynote will share insights on the global language education landscape through the eyes of a journalist, examining forces that are impacting student demand, destinations and demographics; rattling traditional recruitment and delivery channels; stepping up global competition; and raising challenges for quality, inclusion and access to education.
