Attendee Registration/Management
+
ECG crafts a system for course registration, payment collection and attendee management through third-party platforms. This helps you develop a clean database, manage attendee records and run reports seamlessly.
Attendee Marketing
+
The lifeblood of your program is building your database and – ultimately – your attendance. ECG helps define your target market and determine smart channels to reach them through a multi-platform marketing plan.
Program Management
+
Whether we are booking facilities and negotiating contracts or working with your internal planning team, ECG’s full-service approach to program management will help ease the burden on your overstretched staff.
Budgeting
+
Like any business unit, executive education programs need a financial road map. We can review your existing budget and make recommendations, or create a template you can use to track revenue and expenses.
Faculty Liaison
+
Faculty members tend to focus on teaching, not on logistics and attendee details. ECG will bridge the gap between the behind-the-scenes organization and the attendee experience.
Program Materials
+
Open enrollment programs can be intricate, often involving case studies, branded and presentation materials. We help coordinate the production, packaging and distribution of materials in line with faculty instruction and organizational policy.
Customer Service
+
A positive customer experience can have an enormous impact on your bottom line. We recognize that you work hard to attract your customers, and we will work equally hard to help you develop loyal attendees by providing superior customer service.
Attendee Management
+
As an extension of your team, ECG will serve as the onsite, on-the-ground resource for your attendees – from arrival to departure. We handle all of the details to ensure the attendee experience is a positive representation of your brand.
Custom Training Program Management
+
Many institutions offer custom training for corporate and non-profit clients. ECG can provide organization and business planning tactics to support you from proposal through execution of your custom training opportunities.
Post-Program Management
+
Because each organization is unique, ECG will work with you to determine how best to extend the positive customer experience and maintain organizational branding. Our services range from attendee feedback collection and analysis to certificate production and course tracking.
