17th September 2015 – Notre Dame School, Cobham
The Head, the Heart and the Hands
“If you can get a person’s head, heart and hands all working together, then you have the person”
What influences people? What contributes to the way we think and make decisions?
The theme for this year’s conference is “The Head, the Heart and the Hands”, often seen as the three main motivational systems that influence people’s thinking and decision making. We will be looking at how we can develop marketing strategies and create effective communications both internally and externally that successfully amalgamate all three facets of thinking and communication to create an effective package of persuasion.
We have even more on offer with a jammed packed agenda full of seminars and workshops delivered by a hand-picked range of experts. Learn from real case studies from other schools and listen to some top class speakers.
This year we have made a change to our structure to allow for more choice and to enable delegates to tailor their agenda to suit their specific needs.
Following the keynote speaker addresses, delegates will have the chance to attend both seminars and workshops. You can choose to either focus on one key area by selecting from our wide range of workshops (numbers will be limited in each workshop to minimise size and hopefully maximise interaction) or to join one of our seminars delivered by highly regarded professionals from both inside and outside the sector.
This year we have our very own Ant and Dec show! We are delighted to welcome Geoff Ramm (back by popular demand), and Steve Head, both award-winning speakers who will entertain and inform you in equal measures (and both Jordies)!
Geoff is the creator and author of ‘Celebrity Service’ and ‘Observational Marketing’ and a multi-award winning keynote speaker who has inspired audiences across five continents. With a genuine passion and an infectious love of his subject, he’s humorous with original content and will challenge you to greater results.
Discover the gap in your service you never knew existed. You probably think you deliver great service, but then a celebrity walked in…and everything changed! Discover the brilliantly unique philosophy that is ‘Celebrity Service’. See the people and brands from all over the world who will inspire you and your school to create incredible customer service and word of mouth that have parents beating down your door for more. WARNING: Your customers will love you. Your competition will not. This Keynote and Interactive master class will have you scribbling ideas down to generate unlimited ideas to stand out from the competition
