A unified student experience

A unified student experience requires intentionality along the entire journey, not just parts of it. This year we’re providing two distinct keynote sessions you won’t want to miss.

First, we’ll explore how the smallest changes can create the most unforgettable customer experience for today’s students. You’ll leave this session with actionable ways to add value and reduce friction in the admissions, enrollment, and post-grad experience.

Stronger relationships between staff and students

And because the higher ed landscape continues to change, our second keynote will equip you with the tools you and your teams need to thrive in times of chaos and come out on top no matter what is thrown your way. You’ll learn ways to inspire your team, stay on top of your goals, and exceed student expectations while building stronger relationships with both staff and learners.

Plus, our agenda is full of hands-on workshops, awards, first looks, and session blocks with two tracks to choose from so there’s always something right up your alley.
