Endemol's, Head of Digital Marketing and Social Media,  Pete Durant, joins the bill

The right way to engage with your audience

To be truly effective, brands need to leave what they think they know about their audience at the door and embrace market orientation. Building a strategy based on student insights and desires has never been more important. Universities and student-specialist brands need to be engaging with prospective students, without the prism of your brand or the bias of your own experience. 

Do you think your students like you because of your ranking? Or, do you know what platforms students are using? 

Your strategy needs to be based on student insights as well as their desires - this will make sure you’re engaging with your audience in the right away. 

However, with new technologies such as AI, automation, blockchain and programmatic, are we at risk of taking a misstep and failing to be audience-first? Or does this technology allow us to embrace market orientation?

Join Natives and a stellar lineup of guest speakers
for a brand new event this summer. 

Return to your institution focused and equipped to make your marketing strategy truly orientated towards the student audience.
