Stephen Shortt, Managing Director of Alpha College of English, looks forward to an interesting debate on how technology is challenging – or facilitating – the relationship between schools and agents.
With the proliferation of third party data and information based on social media profiles and location, schools have more power than ever before to identify and target individual students around the globe. So how can agents still stay involved in the student recruitment process?
Join us at this seminar during the IALC Workshop in Leeds this week as our panel of industry software experts discuss the greatest challenges in school-agent software integration.
We’ll also explore the non-technical elements being brought to bear in the decisions taken by schools on how to market and promote their courses through their network of partners around the world, pairing local knowledge of the student and the school.
Gary Bulgin from Class by Infospeed, Sudesh Prasad from Intrinsiq, and Nicolas Miller from Edvisor will be discussing the technical elements of integrating systems so schools and agents can effectively communicate and collaborate, as well as the underlying elements that make such integration possible in an increasingly globalised industry.
The debate kicks off at 2 pm in the Marriott Hotel in Leeds on Thursday, 7 April. See you there!
