I'd been working in corporate PR & Marketing before I joined ASB. As a new member to our schools' admission team, Mike Connor's seminar gave me an eye opening moment to know what school admission and marketing should be like, and the climate of our industry. It also gave me lots of reasons for my job so I can work with more confidence and a feeling of comfort.

This course came at the perfect time for our school as we are assessing our marketing strategy and revising our schools mission and core values. I walked away knowing exactly what we need to do and with the key idea that everyone in our school is interdependent and must collaborate in order to succeed. Thanks, Mike. It was extremely inspiring, I came away feeling energized and excited to share with my school.

Connor Associates' comprehensive study of admission and marketing practices included predictive modeling, internal and external image audits, and a competitive analysis.  The analysis was extremely informative in helping us prioritize our efforts and identify our prime targets.  We were impacted by the transformative potential of all areas of our school, not just in admission and marketing.  We commend Mike Connor and Carolyn Stiles for their throughness and candor!

Last week's ACIS Conference for Heads of Schools and Trustees was a big success!  Your roundtable, keynote, and workshop helped set the tone by encouraging critical inquiry and collaboration to address the different challenges facing independent schools.  Thanks for traveling to Colorado to teach and inspire our school leaders!
