Steps to Being Memorable
Render’s signature student tour guide workshop. This is a three-hour, highly interactive intensive that focuses on helping student ambassadors understand the value of storytelling and revealing their authentic student experience. We’ll reinforce their incredible importance (i.e. “They are the most important person in this process!”)—then we’ll wrap up with our “Render Basics,” our tips and best-practices for giving tours, handling difficult questions and people, and common missteps we see on tours throughout the country.
“After Millennials” (Understanding GenZ students and their GenerationX parents)
A campus-wide presentation to faculty, staff, and administration. After two decades of recruiting and enrolling Millennials (and their Baby Boomer parents) this workshop raises the importance of learning about and understanding the seismic generational shift happening on college campuses as post-9/11 Homeland/GenZ and their GenerationX parents are now the target audience. It provides historic background on American generations and key insights into understanding and connecting with this new student/parent cohort, with special attention to your campus visit. Clients tell us it also has provided added value for helping understand generational differences in the workplace as more Millennials are in the ranks of staff and faculty.
“It Takes a Campus (To Stage a Campus Visit)”
A campus-wide presentation to faculty, staff, and administration. We feature work we’ve done to improve the campus visit, explain the importance of the campus visit to the overall health of your enrollment, reveal best practices, and "make the ask" for assistance with constant improvements. Previous workshop attendees have told us this was a "game-changer" on their campus in terms of garnering an understanding and respect for the important role of campus visits and events in recruitment.
