Leaders in international higher education need to engage and influence stakeholders in order to gain support for their strategies both at inception and implementation. What skills and knowledge are needed to influence others? How conscious are decisions about influencing or can these be more a ‘personal style’ approach? Join this interactive roundtable discussion focused on sharing your successes and challenges in engaging others to support internationalisation efforts at your institution.
