Leading this key department in the school means that no two days are ever the same! Today my day kicks off with a strategic planning session involving colleagues from the senior team and Taylor’s office.

As part of this strategy meeting, we look at the competitors in the market and how we can make ourselves stand out through clear messaging.

The Heads of School join for this as we will be collaborating on the content.

My afternoon is dedicated to cross-checking our campaign performance with our media agency data and our Social, Google Console and Analytics data. We are looking for gaps and make slight improvements to ad word copy and refreshing some creatives.
