Marketing Testimonials

Key leadership people within schools, educational systems and the Church, speak very highly of a school and Church leader who developed outstanding marketing strategies and approaches for these institutes. These are now presented in very detailed yet simplified language in his school and Church marketing paperbacks and e-books.

 Bryan’s role at Aquinas College as Media Marketing Coordinator led to the implementation of many creative and innovative school marketing initiatives.

During this period enrolments at Aquinas grew and student academic outcomes improved. The school’s renewed sense of vibrancy and dynamism in the community can be directly attributed to Bryan’s ability to accurately and cleverly promote the College’s special strengths and unique qualities.

For someone like me, even with my Journalism experience, I have found this school marketing book to be a hands on, practical guide to promoting my school. The language used, along with the layout and the content, has enhanced my confidence ... I can see this resource reaching the audience for whom it was written – people responsible for marketing in schools. It helps having seen first hand the author in his marketing role - he has been enormously successful over many years.
