As restrictions continue to drive meetings and delivery online, October saw the successful completion of a student recruitment project with Fairleigh Dickinson University in the US, the delivery of phase 3 of our major narrative project with the University of Oxford, and the start of a new creative project with a new client – Leeds Trinity University – (working with Assemble Events) to support student engagement and retention. Work is also underway on behalf of Cairney & Company to lead consultation interviews with education advancement leaders across the globe (from universities including Harvard, Johns Hopkins, Oxford and LSE) to understand fundraising priorities and areas for support. Fascinating feedback from the sector’s top practitioners.

Michael also led a crisis comms webinar this month for Independent Higher Education members at institutions including Condé Nast College of Fashion, Oxford International Education, and the Royal Academy of Dance.
