To mark his retirement, David Allen OBE will be in conversation with Halpin CEO and Co-founder, Shaun Horan.
Their discussion will explore the lessons David has learnt throughout his distinguished career in higher education, and his work as a consultant with Halpin.
In 2011, David was awarded an OBE in the New Year’s Honours List, for services to higher education. He joined Halpin after retiring in 2013 as Registrar and Deputy Chief Executive of the University of Exeter.
David has held senior leadership roles at the Universities of Birmingham, Nottingham, Southampton and Wales, and also Chaired the boards of Higher Education Funding Council of Wales (HEFCW), Exeter College and Torbay Pharmaceuticals.
David is the only person to have chaired both the Association of University Administrators (AUA, now AHEP) and the Association of Heads of University Administration (AHUA), and was the inaugural Chair of the Russell Group registrars. As a consultant, David has led many of Halpin’s most important and high-profile reviews, including governance reviews at the Universities of Bath, UCL, Imperial and Universities UK.
Join us to celebrate the impact that David has had on the UK higher education sector and benefit from the senior-level perspective he will share, spanning a 40-year career leading some of the nation’s most important institutions.
