BANGKOK, THAILAND, 26 September 2019 – In his first month as CEO of FOBISIA John Gwyn Jones has taken time out to visit some of FOBISIA's Member Schools in Bangkok and Penang.

FOBISIA is the premier Federation supporting and promoting high-quality British-style international education in Asia. With more than 30 years of shared history, the FOBISIA family is a diverse and inclusive community of 68 Member Schools across 18 countries.
Mr Jones' recent Member School visits are testament to FOBISIA's commitment to promoting the interests of its Member Schools, as well as supporting and fostering cooperation between them. "One of the most valuable things about being part of the FOBISIA family is the opportunity for peer-to-peer support at every level", said Mr Jones. "FOBISIA wouldn't have such high-quality professional development offerings nor such an extensive student enrichment programme, if it wasn't for our Member Schools' enduring commitment to bringing something to the table for the benefit of all. FOBISIA is more than just a group of schools; it is the way the Federation's membership works together that makes it unique".
FOBISIA CEO, John Gwyn Jones, will be visiting as many Member Schools as he can throughout the region over the coming year. Mr Jones said he was looking forward to meeting senior leaders from all of the Member Schools in the Federation at FOBISIA's 27th Annual Leadership Conference in Macao, as well as teachers and TAs at FOBISIA's 3rd Biennial Teaching Community Conference – FOBISIA Shares in Penang in November.
