Summer brings the quiet of an empty campus and the focus you need to get through your backlog of emails and articles. Not only is this a time for productivity, it’s also the perfect opportunity to learn something new to help you communicate even more effectively at your school.

Why not join the Mission Minded team at some of the upcoming trainings and workshops we have coming up this summer? You’ll get a chance to make connections, discover new ways to market your school, and meet us in person! Never just a lecture, each of our lively workshops instills the energy and confidence you need to become more effective in your job, and we promise you’ll have fun while you’re at it.

Take a look at what’s on our roster for this summer, and come say hi!

What Great Enrollment Professionals Know About Brand

The Association of Independent School Admission Professionals (AISAP) – July 17th in Nashville, TN

Great schools have great brands, and great brands are built through strong leadership. Yet many schools still don’t understand what brand really means, how to create a strong one, or what role enrollment managers and other school leaders can play in ensuring the brand of their school is as strong as the school itself. Senior Brand Strategist Stephanie Swain will deliver a second workshop that outlines the difference between brand and mission and between brand and logo. More than a motto, admissions brochure, or website, are you ready to create the powerful brand to put your school in a category all on its own?
