VIC/TAS Chapter AGM and Networking Drinks

Registrations have now closed for this event as we are fully booked.

On behalf of President, Adam Liddiard, we warmly invite you to the VIC/TAS Chapter AGM and Networking Drinks on Thursday 24 November in the U.N Room, Centre for Learning & Innovation, Carey Baptist Grammar School.  Please ensure you arrive promptly by 4.30pm for the AGM commencement. 

Following the AGM, we will be joined at 5.00pm by guest speaker, Simone Douglas, Digital Advertising and Marketing Specialist who will share with us her expertise in social media and digital marketing trends and their wider application in the education sector.

In recent years, digital marketing has become an increasingly important tool for schools and universities. With the rise of social media and other digital platforms, there are more opportunities than ever to reach potential students and engage with alumni, donors, and other important stakeholders. However, with so many digital marketing avenues to explore, it can be difficult to know where to start. This session will provide attendees with an overview of the latest digital marketing trends and their wider application in the education sector. We will explore how schools can use digital marketing to increase their share of voice, support admissions, engage with alumni, and cement their brand positioning. By the end of the session, attendees will have a better understanding of how digital marketing can be used to achieve their school’s specific goals. This is an opportunity not to be missed!

We look forward to sharing drinks and canapes with you at 6.00pm following Simone’s presentation.  A wonderful opportunity to network with your counterparts from all across Victoria!
