Last month, the OpenApply team was excited to kick off our series of professional development events planned for the year, by hosting an admissions workshop in Dubai.

The regionally-focused workshop, which took place on February 27, 2024 at Bloom World Academy, was very well received, with the post-event survey revealing that 100% of delegates would like to join our upcoming events. We were thrilled to welcome 23 delegates from 16 schools in 11 countries.

The event was designed to empower delegates to maximise the full potential of OpenApply while having the opportunity to discuss unique or shared challenges, compare insights and collaborate as a community of OpenApply users.

A variety of objectives, from leveraging data and analytics, enhancing communication, optimising and refining processes, as well as addressing regional challenges and opportunities, were addressed. The OpenApply team, led by Senior Customer Success Manager Tom Kirby and Sales and Accounts Manager Matt Craig, demonstrated how these goals could be effectively achieved.

In addition to the presentations and workshops, the attendees enjoyed the networking opportunities, with active group discussions and one-on-one chats.
