With over 25 years of experience in international student recruitment, ICEF is well aware of the common obstacles educators face prior to, during, and following ICEF events. It is essential that educators wishing to engage with agents know what they are looking for. Institutions with a clearly articulated value proposition and a comprehensive follow up strategy are the ones capable of developing strong working relationships with educational recruitment agencies. ICEF Coach ensures that you are prepared with the tools you need to get the maximum ROI from your ICEF experience.

I had the opportunity to participate in the ICEF Coach programme. ICEF Coach eased my fears as a first time ICEF attendee and as a participant at an institution new to working with agents. I believe that the programme was crucial to our success at ICEF Miami.

Leading up to the event, Birgit (our coach) shared all of her secrets, tips, and best practices through a phone conference, and just prior to the workshop, we had a meeting with all the coaches to focus on how the speed-dating style meetings would happen, and how to ensure our conversations with agents were successful. During the event, the coaches connected with me every chance they had. They helped me to focus my message and better represent my institution.

The results, so far, are that I am leaving the event with a long list of potential partners and clear expectations on what to do with these important leads. Time will tell how many partnerships and what level of partnership each meeting will produce, but I am certain that whatever success we have, is greater because of my participation in the ICEF Coach Programme.
