We are so proud to announce today that we have been shortlisted for the Conference Awards 2015 within the Best Conference Series category!
Our annual conference Hobsons U, with the associated client events throughout the year, help us to engage and listen to our clients. We have built a community and fostered a sense of belonging to a group that participants really feel the benefit of being involved in.
The Head of Marketing at the London School of Business and Management, Alex Causton-Ronaldson, gave an insightful presentation at our HobsonsU conference last month.
As one of the first Radius CRM adaptors in the UK market, Alex was well placed to share his implementation experiences with delegates.
Watch Alex give a summary of his presentation here:
These free events for Hobsons clients are a great way to build your professional network, share best practice, and get essential updates on Hobsons products and services.
This week was arguably the hardest question so far: “Do boys think differently to girls?”
SOLE club this week again came from Sacred Heart Catholic School in Highbury. This time we had a different question to ask the children:
Who is the most powerful person in the world?
Once the kids of year 4-6 at Sacred Heart Catholic Primary School had got used to our new faces, the second session of SOLE got underway. They told us that they had really enjoyed last week’s exploration with Nicola and Alistair of how long society would last without electricity, and many seemed keen to volunteer to be the ‘police officers’. This week Stephanie and Samuel helped us out in this much coveted role and got to work handing out the iPads, posters and pens.
This week we re-launched the SOLE project with Sacred Heart Catholic School in Highbury. We met with our school contact Jamie Harvey to coordinate the sessions with children from Years 4-6 (ages 9-11). Jamie was very excited to start the project, and his enthusiasm was reflected in the huge interest from the students.
Last month, Hobsons attended a joint conference between the Home Affairs Select Committee, and Regent’s University London surrounding student visas. The main themes covered included the administration of student visas and the processes surrounding obtaining one, the impact of UK student visa policy on the future of the UK knowledge economy, and the opinion of businesses on the post-graduation employment of international students. The conference was co-hosted by Rt Hon Keith Vaz MP, Chairman of the Home Affairs Select Committee, and Professor Aldwyn Cooper, Vice Chancellor of Regents University, also including a keynote speech from the Minister for Security and Immigration, James Brokenshire MP.
Yesterday a group from Middlesex University visited the Hobsons office to undertake training from Product Manager Shiloh Rose. The twelve who joined were from Admissions, International Marketing, Recruitment and the Schools Marketing Team, with a variety of roles and responsibilities across the university. The team who came in were being trained so that they could become ‘Superusers’ and Ambassadors of Connect, and be an effective point of contact in their university for enquiries.
It was great to welcome in the team from Middlesex University, who have partnered with Hobsons for over seven years now. With yesterday’s training, knowledge of the product can be shared across an even greater number of teams and departments than before, allowing more students and staff to benefit from the efficiencies and increased organisation brought with effective use of Connect.
