Client was unable to address the specific needs of nearly 15% of its student base. As a result, the client was worried about losing these students to competitors in the future.
Client’s list of special student demands were passed to Ivybridge. Ivybridge sourced and matched experts for all of clients’ students within one week.
1) IvyBridge matched an award winning film director (with an MFA from USC and lots of management experience in big name Hollywood studios) with the client’s student looking to apply to a famous film school and eventually go into film directing/management in a big American city.
2) IvyBridge matched a top public speaker (from Harvard who has written public speaking curriculum specifically focused on entrepreneurship) with the client’s student needing help improving his pitches to investors for his real estate startup.
1. Client is able to satisfy their existing students’ niche demands and retain them as long term customers.
2. With the greatly expanded experience and scope of their new advisor pool, the client is able to recruit more students whose demands they were unable to fill previously due to their existing employee expertise and limited headcount.
