Exclusive Webinar Series for Higher Education Innovators

Converge Launches Exclusive Webinar Series for Higher Education Innovators

Converge Consulting announces New & Next, an exclusive webinar series for higher education. These discussions push the envelope for innovation, bringing cutting-edge ideas to the table.


“New & Next is designed for marketing evangelists unafraid to reach across the aisle and gain momentum from cross-industry thought leadership,” said Ann Oleson, CEO and Founder.

The fall 2016 series welcomes speakers from content marketing, real estate development and executive coaching companies.

Kicking off the discussions is Jay Sharman, CEO and founder of TeamWorks Media. On Thursday, October 20, Sharman will give a 60-minute presentation, The Modern Campus: How to Differentiate through Brand Storytelling in Facilities.

The series continues on November 17 with a presentation from Craig Cassell, Global Leader for the Education Practice Group at Cushman & Wakefield. The Education Practice Group is a full-service, integrated advisory team focused on real estate solutions for the education sector. Cassell will share case studies of how colleges and universities around the world have increased space occupancy and financed innovative spaces on campus.

New & Next concludes on December 14 with a presentation on Unbiasing by Julie Staggs, associate client partner at Korn Ferry. Unconscious bias has been a topic of discussion at Google for many years—Staggs’ session focuses on practical applications of these lessons for higher education.

“Understanding how decisions are made at work will help campus leaders and decision-makers cultivate talent and an inclusive organizational culture,” said Staggs.

The complimentary webinars begin in late October and run monthly through December. Visit the New & Next website to register and read more about the sessions.
