Workshops

Dynamic facilitation for your next workshop

Ken Steele has presented and facilitated workshops at hundreds of campuses over the past decade, on topics as diverse as campus housing, information technology, academic planning, institutional positioning and brand strategy, recruitment marketing, student retention and success, enrolment management, innovations in teaching and learning, revenue generation, and media relations. (Click on specific topics and themes at right, for more information). Ken’s broad perspective and ample grasp of emerging trends, research data and innovative practices across the higher education landscape lends itself to an even broader range of subjects.

Whether a half-day workshop or a full-day retreat, Ken will work with you to develop an effective, engaging and fun agenda to achieve your objectives for your Enrolment Management committee, Academic leadership, Marketing Communications or Advancement staff, Information Technology department, Recruitment team, Student Services professionals, Teaching and Learning Centre, or other campus group.

Ken’s presentations are always up-to-the-moment fresh and just controversial enough, with dynamic visuals, video clips, fast-paced delivery and tasteful humour.  The most demanding audiences report that even after 90 minutes, they could listen to more, and many campuses bring him back year after year for fresh ideas and the latest developments. Ken’s workshops are highly interactive, making use of online polling tools, small group discussion, and a variety of activities to keep participants engaged and focused on the key issues at hand.

Ken can be booked to facilitate a half-day workshop, one- or two-day retreat, or to provide a keynote or mini-keynotes to contribute to a larger agenda. If you’re interested in pursuing the possibilities further:

“Informative, thought-provoking, and relevant are three words that describe Ken Steele’s recent presentation at UPEI. His talk brought approximately 100 members of our university community together to consider the latest trends affecting the role of teachers and models of undergraduate teaching and learning. The presentation was followed by a workshop on the same topic…  a great way to open the discussion on a variety of issues as we embark on an academic planning exercise at UPEI.”

 

Christian Lacroix, Interim VP Academic, UPEI

Ken has provided critical consultancy as we look to understand our current and future student milieu; then, and perhaps of even greater value, he has provided critical facilitation as we look at ourselves in reaction to those understandings. We are much the better for Ken’s insights and counsel.

Ken showed up on our BC campus at 8PM after a flight from Ontario and didn’t lose a minute — working a faculty gathering for information all evening. He then plunged into a day and a half of meetings with a perspicacity unmatched in my experience, emerging with a thorough understanding of who we are and what we needed. His tactical and strategic recommendations helped lead to a 51% increase in enrolment this fall, and he continues to help us spread the word about our new University long after his contract was up.

Ken Steele is a very dynamic and talented speaker and facilitator. Not only does he spell-bindingly paint a picture of the future of PSE, he also skillfully assists his audience to engage in vigorous discussion of key issues. Highly recommended!
