We were approached in May 2019 to assist with the marketing and recruitment of a new primary school - and later, Kindergarten and Secondary School - to be established in Hong Kong.
We consulted with the Executive Director and the Head Office in Singapore extensively on:
understanding the market in Hong Kong
creating the organisational structure
advising on staff requirements for licensing purposes
fees and debentures
Timing was of the essence since, ideally, key positions would be in situ to assist with ongoing renovations, curriculum design and liaison with multiple government departments. It was also ideal if the candidates were already in Hong Kong, understood the market and were Permanent Residents not requiring a lengthy process of visa sponsorship.
We were able to secure appointments for the Founding Principal (Primary School) who started in June 2020, the Vice Principal (Primary School) who started in August 2020, the Founding Principal (KG) who started in October and the Admissions Manager.
Marketing & Admissions
We were also engaged to boost the exposure, enhance engagement and, ultimately, generate enrolments for this new school for 2020/21 (as soon as they could open), as well as 2021/22. Review, Research and Recommend
We quickly got to work on reviewing all policy documents and existing marketing materials from the sister school in Singapore.
We looked at the branding, the competitors and the target market and made recommendations accordingly.
