Proud Stories: Brilliant? Or Need Help?


Are you proud of how you share your school’s story?

Are you proud of your school’s homepage? Or the work you’ve done to get your admissions page just right? Are you proud of a blog post your team published or a social campaign that really hit the mark?


Then enter the global InspirED Brilliance Awards (read on for proud highlights from 2017 winners)!


Then it’s time for a stronger story and we can help.

If you are underwhelmed with certain pages on your website, think your school’s blog is fine but not fantastic, or know your social campaigns can do more to connect with the real character of your school, then I highly recommend a Stronger Story Call.

Stronger Story Calls are free and this is how they work:

  1. Sign up: Find a time that works for you.

  2. Answer a few simple prep questions: I will send you simple questions to answer prior to our call to help prepare.

  3. We’ll chat over Zoom: I’ll send you a Zoom link and we’ll chat. Our call will focus on your school, how to create a stronger story, and how to share your story with those who need to hear it most.

Let’s Chat

Find a time that works for you.

Sign up now.

I hope to see you in the running for a Brilliance Award – if not this year, certainly after our Stronger Story Call!

Get InspirED to enter with highlights from proud 2017 winners:

Rowland Hall, Silver Award

Holy Innocents’ Episcopal School, Bronze Award

This piece from Rowland Hall Choir is simply beautiful. This will inspire any school marketer looking to share a story in a way that is authentic and true, especially for the holiday season (2017 Silver Winner).

It is always worthwhile to learn from the fundraising efforts of fellow innovative schools. We love the tone of this message. In fact, this piece is also an inspiration for making the standard Head of School welcome message stronger on your website.

PLUS: Thoughtful case studies from proud winners


These thought-provoking case studies feature stories behind the winners across all categories. Full disclosure: There is work that I am personally very proud of among them (2017 Gold Winner).

Be Inspired. Be proud. Enter now or sign up for a Stronger Story Call!

See you next Monday,
