: The Prospect Path: Predictable, Planned and Powerful.

Description: By thinking through exactly how you want prospects to engage with your school, you can create dynamic, tailored, and robust experiences for each and every family along the way. Each family can have a bespoke experience along the way, regardless of their extracurricular interests. If you are a school that, at times, might resemble a “one size fits all” approach to admissions, this conversation will truly open your eyes. In this interactive session, we will examine best-practices for employing prospect journeys and how to use existing tools to track, engage, and cultivate these relationships. Regardless of the size of your team, you will leave with a plan for increasing the number and quality of interactions with each and every family in your funnel.

Bio: For nearly two decades Jesse Roberts has been achieving success in the independent school market. As an: Admission Director, Development Director, VP of Marketing, teacher, coach, board member and a parent. He has worked for schools who were struggling to maintain enrollment and schools who have 13-year waiting lists, but the constant is his innovative perspective to the challenge of admission and enrollment management.

Jesse has personally engaged or consulted directly with nearly 1000 schools. His thought-leadership is based in a wealth of knowledge about industry trends and technological insights to experience on the front lines of the “meet & greet.” Having developed a series of custom tools that establish and improve efficiency in the admission process, he provides schools fine-tuned marketing/messaging as well as assists admission teams to deliver on brand promise.
