Here is what attendees have said about Brad's previous presentations:
"That really was a fantastic presentation, congratulations bud!" - Kyle
"I've never seen such a buzz re: a presentation on twitter. I'm dying that I'm not there to hear it..." - Tom
"Great presentation! I've got many ideas to take back to my school. Very helpful as a newbie in higher ed." - Jess
was wonderful information and our undergraduate recruiters from various
academic units learned a great deal from today's webinar. Your
presentation was both informative and inspiring. If you host
another one, we will sign up! Your information is inspiring and
critical in the light of the changing face of college admissions in the
21st century." - IUPUI
"When I spoke at the Stamats event in Tampa, I was excited that so many people in the audience were really tuned in to the notion of what social media could do for their higher education marketing. But who stole the show, in my eyes, was Brad J. Ward. His speech [The Recruitment Long Tail] was both passionate and value-driven. You could do something with his speech. And that lesson, adding value to the passion, is what I took away from that part of that event.” - Chris Brogan
