Corporate Engagement Bootcamp New Orleans
NACRO’s Corporate Engagement Bootcamp was held in New Orleans on Monday, February 4, 2019 at the Royal Sonesta. It focused on guiding attendees through the corporate engagement cycle. With speakers on both the philanthropic and research side, this workshop focused on the NACRO “blueprint” for holistic university corporate relations.
The one-day course incorporated two of the best parts of NACRO: peer learning and networking with corporate relations colleagues from other universities. Corporate Relations Officers shared their best practices in areas of corporate outreach, closing the deal, and stewarding corporate partners.
