What We Know

  • Global Alumni:  The Authentic Voice

    This year's ICEF event in Miami was as busy as usual.  But the seminar I offered wasn't one of the usual topics.  This year we decided to look at the important role that alumni can play in the international student recruitment and marketing strategy, and the ways alumni engagement can work in all sectors -- schools. language schools, colleges and Universities worldwide.  We talked about how best to engage and involve alumni, and how their support can be engaged to magnify the impact of student recruitment efforts.  "The authentic voice" refers to the specific kind of contribution that alumni can make in our messaging.  The presentation slides are attached:  do send me comments or questions on this interesting aspect of international student recruitment.
