Getting world class results throughout the student lifecycle.

Finding a clear path through the complexities of the business of higher education - so you can take effective action - isn’t easy. It demands diplomacy, a smart, considered approach to the challenge, intelligent strategy development, and the confidence to act decisively.

As the industry’s most dynamic team of higher education specialists– with a sensitivity and pragmatism born of significant experience in senior roles – we can help you gain real clarity of vision. So you’re able to confidently choose the course of action which achieves results, quickly, painlessly, cost-effectively.

Our 'Four Hands' approach

We use our 'four hands’ approach to help you flourish. These 'four hands’ create an interlinked system of continuous improvement, where investment in any one enhances results in the others. We can start anywhere in the cycle. Do all four well and success is inevitable.  

Retain

Student Retention
Along every student’s journey there can be many challenges. Problems with finances, accommodation and friends can add up, not to mention academic and time management pressures. The risk of losing students who succumb to such pressures is high. The cost of losing students is not only felt by education providers financially and in lower completion rates, but also by the students and their families. Keeping students is cheaper and easier than acquiring new students. Early intervention is the key.  

Student/Staff safety
Keeping students and staff safe, and feeling safe, is paramount for education providers. Safety concerns are a major distraction from studies and work, and for staff when travelling on business. If not checked early, the outcomes for students, academics and management can be serious. Among many of the solutions we can offer is the opportunity to draw on our expertise with app-based student safety systems, which can allow your organisation to position itself as a leader on this critical issue.

Acquire

Student Acquisition
We can recommend smarter ways to generate leads, attract ‘right-fit’ students, manage enquiries, manage social media, improve admissions, automate your marketing and improve your channels, all within tight budgets.

Channel Partner Acquisition
We can help you assess the capabilities of potential partners and negotiate agreements which put you in a stronger contractual position, while alleviating much of what’s challenging and time-consuming about the process.

Build

Build your Brand
Effective brand development in a crowded and highly competitive marketplace doesn’t automatically mean you need to invest hundreds of thousands of dollars. We can develop targeted strategies to optimise the effect of your brand communications, boost your reputation and ensure that every dollar you invest contributes meaningfully to how your brand is perceived.

Build your Capacity
Across hundreds of projects, we’ve managed to help clients build the capacity of their teams to do more and achieve more, often with a relatively small investment, or by making comparatively simple adjustments to their systems and processes.

Deliver

Outstanding Student Experience
Student experience is becoming increasingly critical to education providers and promoters. Student experience is a complex and multi-faceted area, rich in challenges and opportunities. One thing is certain though, if students have a wonderful experience, they are not only going to have better lives and better graduate outcomes, they also go on to be great advocates and brand builders for your organisation.

Enduring Student Success
More than ever, students and parents are expecting a return on their education investment. For many of them this means strong employment outcomes. With increasing demand from students and parents, along with increased transparency regarding employment statistics, it’s more important than ever to produce great graduates with great outcomes and to have these outcomes recognised and promoted.
