We’re happy to announce that Bodwell has won another prestigious award! At the BCCIE (British Columbia Council for International Education) conference in Whistler on Tuesday 23rd June 2015, Boris Remes and the marketing team were presented with the award for Excellence in International Education Marketing.
It was a well-deserved honour to Boris and the marketing team after years of hard work and impressive results. Bodwell’s marketing team is made up of a diverse collection of individuals who represent Bodwell throughout the globe:
Boris Remes – Assistant Director of Admissions / Marketer for Europe & Middle East
Alison Bartlett – US & Canada
Carmina Franco – Mexico & Spain
Danielle Giguere – Latin & South America
Isiuwa Aimiose – Africa
Joe Fu – China
Josephine Lee – Taiwan
Megumi Uehara – Japan
Mirye Kim – Korea
Simon Yoon – Korea & South East Asia
Each of these marketers work tirelessly to attend school fairs and expos in their respective markets and meet and build close ties with agents and educational consultants.
As well as traditional marketing, Boris has been instrumental in Bodwell’s push into online inbound marketing. In fact, at the BCCIE conference on Tuesday, Boris and myself gave a presentation titled ‘The Rise of Online Community Marketing in International Education’ to share some of the insights and challenges we’ve faced in 2015 with our online marketing strategies and activities. It was well-received and we were happy to answer a number of interesting questions.
Finally Bodwell would like to thank the BCCIE board and organizers for putting on such a great event. Congratulations to the other winners of awards from the night:
