Who says that during Covid-19 we can't have a live Study Abroad Workshop? Social distancing, face masks, travel restrictions? Not a problem!
With great enthusiasm from both agents and IH schools, on the 3rd and 4th June we had the pleasure of organising our very first International House Study Abroad Online Workshops. We were joined by representatives from 24 IH schools, who had the chance to meet with more than 60 agencies from all over the world: Africa, Argentina, Brazil, France, Germany, Ireland, Italy, Mexico, Russia, Spain, UK, and many others.
With these live online events, we might have been physically distant, but the desire to be together was absolutely there. Together we are stronger.
Giuliana Faldetta, Marketing Coordinator at IHWO, commented, "These workshops provided an invaluable opportunity to discuss our plans – and the challenges we all face – together as partners. It helped both schools and agents to meet new and existing partners, and to talk about what is happening in different countries within our industry.
"I feel that today, more than ever, we need to support our partner agents and friends. Seeing each other face-to-face, even if virtually, helps us to feel part of the same community. We are stronger together.
"Because of the very positive feedback from both agents and IH schools, we are planning on organising more workshop events to continue to support our industry and community."
