Top quotes from this episode!

• “…A really good selling point for a society to have when pitching to sponsors is to have an avenue to give out these brands & merchandise that can really spread their awareness.”

• “A tiered freebee system, for 1 sign up you could get a pen, for 1 sign up & sharing our snapchat geo-filter you could get a better prize such as a (water) bottle… You also go in the running to win a free textbook.”

• “An executive role is a front-loaded position.”

• “It’s a volunteer role, so it’s quite easy for students to put societies on the backburner once they’ve got the position. They might be looking at jobs, their marks… that’s why building a rapport is important & really connecting & demonstrating the over-all vision & how their role connects with the vision. “

• “Why would a firm give money to a student society? It was really about brand-awareness, student engagement, mentoring & events.”
