Designed for those who work in higher education, this fun and energetic webinar will share examples of how universities are creating unique and engaging events centered around record breaking experiences. Examples include the Most sandwiches made in an hour by Temple University (and donating them to nearby homeless shelters) and the Most backpacks stuffed with school supplies in one hour by Brown University.

The result creates memories that last a lifetime and drives earned media, generates community goodwill, and engages student and alumni.

By the conclusion of this webinar, attendees will:

  • Understand how GWR works with universities to drive awareness and engagement, and instill a sense of school pride
  • Share specific examples and case studies with colleagues to spark conversation
  • Leverage the power of the Guinness World Records brand around a homecoming, welcome week or fundraising event
  • Tap into the creative process behind record breaking and how it can relate to a university’s goals and KPI’s

Much of PR’s impact isn’t always tangible or immediate, which can leave marketing and communications professionals having difficulty in measuring public relations efforts and overall ROI.

Have you ever wanted to know how to justify your PR’s impact on revenue? Do you need to prove your impact on the overall business objectives a result from your PR activity? Or how about which tools can be used to obtain quantifiable metrics?

Join us November 6 for a Lunch & Learn with Brent Diggins, an agency partner and managing director of measurement + analytics for Allison+Partners.
