AHEP Consulting

Improving professional services practice and

developing professional services performance

AHEP Consulting is about improving professional services practice and developing professional services performance. It is a consulting practice that is ‘of the sector for the sector’ – our Consultants are practitioners in higher education administration and management and they are members of our Association. For clients this means we combine the benefits of an external perspective with sector specific expertise. Any financial surplus derived from AHEP Consulting is reinvested to support the AHEP’s charitable objectives – connecting and developing HE professionals – for the benefit of our members in support of the sector.
