NACRO is pleased to present a continuation of our professional development webinar series for 2018, which was first launched last year! This year’s content is meant to be wide ranging, and relevant to both corporate relations officers and others collaborators across the university, based on the specific topics delineated below:
Webinar #1 – Conducting research on corporations: How to collect and communicate information about industry partners
Tuesday, March 20, 2018
Corporate intelligence is an important component of building effective relationships between your university and a corporate partner. There are a variety of tools available, but data is often disparate and may not be easily accessible. To discuss these issues, this webinar will include both a professional prospect researcher to share tools and best practices from the perspective of someone focused exclusively on researching emerging and existing partners, along with a seasoned corporate relations officer who is responsible for collating their own background intelligence.
Moderator: Heath Wood, Director of Development, CFR, Georgia State University
- Tessa Fjelland, Associate Director of Research Strategies, Iowa State University Foundation
- Jonathan Cummings, Director of Industry Engagement, Lehigh University
Registration: $199 for NACRO members, and $299 for nonmembers. Open through March 15, 2018.
Webinar #2 – Working with your corporate relations office: The in's and out's of a successful cross-divisional partnership
Anticipated late April. More details coming soon.
Webinar #3 – Recruiting, Engaging and Enhancing Corporate Partnerships Through Events
