SOT Events are organised and hosted by Beaconhouse, one of the largest independent school networks in the world. Beaconhouse traces its roots to the Les Anges Montessori Academy, founded in Lahore, Pakistan, in November 1975 with 19 children. Nearly 43 years later, the Beaconhouse network educates over 300,000 students in eight countries across Asia, the Middle East and Europe, of which over 100,000 study in company-owned schools while the remaining are in institutions operated by network associates. Beaconhouse also operates 48 government schools in partnership with the Government of the Punjab.

Beaconhouse is a learning organisation that takes pride in its past while nurturing a culture of continuous professional development, self-review and reinvention. It is this quest that drives all SOT Events.

SOT Events are made possible by the generous support of corporate sponsors including leading banks and multinational organisations.
