“From start to finish, it was evident that Rick and Andy had meticulously curated a collaborative workshop and take-home workbook resources to help admissions professionals work smarter, not harder at reaching and engaging with customers in every stage of the funnel.”

Rebecca De Silva, Associate Director of Admissions, Trinity College School, Port Hope, Ontario, Canada

“As a newbie to all things Admissions, the Geeks on the Road conference was incredibly helpful and encouraging. I was able to meet other admissions directors, I was able to pick marketing folks’ brains, and I was able to see what other schools were doing to boost their enrollment as well as retain the families they already had. Attending the Geeks on the Road conference was one of the smartest decisions I’ve made for professional development, hands down.”

“This conference was informative, encouraging and challenging! Something for everyone no matter how much experience you have in the Admissions world

Renda Cox, Admissions Assistant, Foundation Academy, Winter Garden, FL

“The biggest thing I was struggling with was wondering if anyone knew best practices in the admissions world. Was I alone in this? I had developed my own best practices from trial and error but felt I needed a reliable and experienced resource to help. The workshop made all the difference. Not only are Andy and Rick experienced in admissions success, but having other admissions directors and school leaders in the room who had boots on the ground and who could share their successes and challenges, was extremely valuable.”

Rick and Andy made it fun and thought-provoking. Our entire advancement team benefited by having time to meet together after sessions.”

“Attending the GOTR workshop was the best decision I’ve ever made! Being new to marketing for a school that needed to increase enrollment, I wasn’t really sure where to start. This workshop provided so much insight and guidance to help me map out a plan along with key areas to focus on throughout the year. The bonus part of the workshop was having the opportunity to meet and learn from other private school marketing and admission directors. Rick and Andy are hands down the legendary gurus for all things private school! Their wealth of knowledge and experience will truly make an impact on YOU and school!”

Julianna McDaniel, Director of Marketing, Trinity School of Texas, Longview, TX

“The Geeks on the Road workshop was the most valuable professional development experience I have participated in during my school marketing career. Rick and Andy provided so much valuable content during the event, while also allowing time for networking and learning from our peers at other schools. By implementing some of the actionable steps from the workshop, our 2023-24 retention rate exceeded our goal, and our new student enrollment was the highest on record for our school! If you are looking for a great return on investment for your marketing and admissions team, look no further than the Geeks on the Road workshop!”
