Take a day out of your busy schedule to hear Discovering Futures’ experts give their insights and case studies at our latest conference: Successful Branding for Student Recruitment.


Does your brand successfully recruit students?

How can universities and colleges make themselves distinctive and stand out from the crowd when their products and services are very similar?

A successful brand is an invaluable asset in the recruitment and retention of students – and forward-looking colleges and universities recognise this value. Put simply, it can mean the difference between survival and failure.

At our conference you will explore the value of brands and pick up some useful strategies during a day of inspiring and engaging sessions. Topics include:

  • the role of social media in engaging students and brand building
  • the value of brands in education
  • building brands in China, Ghana and Nigeria
  • introducing a new brand to market

Our keynote speaker is Michael Johnson creative director at Johnson Banks, an award-winning design agency, who have re-branded the Science Museum and Virgin Atlantic and worked on campaigns with King’s College London and Ravensbourne. The morning also features a debate with experts on what is the point of branding in education.
At our special interest sessions, you will then be able to delve into the nitty gritty of branding by exploring case studies from universities – including Brighton, Bournemouth and Nottingham – and specialist agencies working in China, and west Africa.

This is your opportunity to learn from the front-runners in branding and find out how your organisation can benefit from the very latest ideas in the field. It’s also a great chance to chat and catch up with fellow professionals at our convenient venue on London’s South Bank.
