Dec 21, 2022

In this episode, Mel dives deep into these recent podcast episodes:

E034 It’s About People Not Numbers with Rachel Lee

E035 Managing & Perceiving Emotions with Kevin Conn

E036 Challenge the Status Quo with Deenie Lee & Sarah Canning

Four guests, three fabulous conversations discussing leadership and different aspects of higher education. With Rachel we explored the challenges of selling academic venues when they are not being used for core student activities. With Kevin, we dived into the importance of emotional intelligence and how it is a necessary skill for all leaders. And finally with Deenie and Sarah, we delved into the world of strategic marketing and how they are challenging the status quo with the research they have undertaken into what students want from their accommodation.



“How many times are you involved in internal struggles? I don't like this person. I don't like that person. When we find that we don't like somebody, we start to look for stories that confirm our beliefs. Well, how about you stop that and start to celebrate your differences, understanding that by celebrating those differences, you can achieve more together.”
