Corporate Engagement Bootcamp is offered twice a year, typically in February and in July, in conjunction with the NACRO Annual Conference.
NACRO's Corporate Engagement Bootcamp guides attendees through the corporate engagement cycle. At universities, Corporate Relations Officers are housed in different departments, such as Advancement, Office of Research, Economic Development, and Career Centers, to name a few. Corporate Relations represents engagement across campus or offices housed in specific departments, schools, and centers. At some institutions, corporate engagement is just part of an individual’s role, along with major gifts, employer engagement, or research partnerships. Regardless of the area you serve on campus or the percentage of your role dedicated to corporate relations, the best practices shared in this session can improve your university’s approach to corporate engagement.
With speakers on both the philanthropic and research side, this workshop focuses on the NACRO “blueprint” for holistic university corporate relations. The day incorporates two of the best parts of NACRO: peer learning and networking with corporate relations colleagues from other universities. Corporate Relations Officers will share their best practices in areas of corporate outreach, closing the deal, and stewarding corporate partners.
Who Should Attend:
Whether you represent your entire campus or a specific school, or spend 100% or 20% of your time on corporate relations, the best practices shared in this session can improve your university’s approach to corporate engagement. The Bootcamp is the next iteration of Blueprint Day, which was offered at the 2017 conference.
The Bootcamp program begins at 8am and ends at 5pm, with breakfast and lunch included.
