Like most international education conferences that I’m unable to attend I followed and engaged with the conference and attendees via the conference hashtag from Chicago as I find this to be a valuable exercise on many levels. What was great about AIEC 2016 this year is that the conference (I presume) teamed up with Tweet Binder and they provided some very informative Twitter metrics about the conference.
Following are screen shots (click on photos to enlarge) I took of some of the most interesting metrics and two include how well my #aiec2016 engagement fared compared to others. I’m particularly proud to be ranked 2nd as a contributor with the highest impact at 869,033 Impacts (I was also the 5th most active and second in terms of retweets). The contributor with the greatest impact was IDP Database (@IDPDRIE) at 2,154,439 Impacts and the third highest ranked contributor was The PIE News (@ThePIENews) with 509,139 Impacts. I’m in good company!
I’ll be attending theupcoming IIE Generation Study Abroad Summit as a member of the media (for IHEC Blog) and not as being from the University of Chicago Booth School of Business. I’ll be blogging, tweeting and posting to Facebook before, during and after the Summit! I’m hoping to secure some great interviews with key people associated with Generation Study Abroad as well as other prominent stakeholders in the field. I also plan to try out Facebook Live so stay tuned to IHEC Blog‘s Facebook page!
This Summit will be my first officialpress credentials for an international education event…although I had quasi-press credentials for my blog when the Fulbright Scholarship Board held their quarterly meeting at the University of Chicago back in May 2013.
Will you be there? It would be great to connect!
I frequently receive requests for informational interviews from people eager to enter the field of international education and I’m more than happy to schedule a meeting or phone/skype call (schedule permitting). To be sure, there are several opportunities for those wanting to enter the field to learn more and engage others in the process. One such resource that I’ve been affiliated with for some time now is the Global Pro Institute offered by Brooke Roberts and Inside Study Abroad. More information on the Global Pro Institute follows below.
Inside Study Abroad is excited to announce the open enrollment for the Fall 2016 Cohort of the Global Pro Institute, a 6-week online professional development, training, and coaching program for aspiring professionals in international education.

This program provides a much-needed community of support and comprehensive information to help bridge the gap between being a passionate international programs participant and to a competent international education professional. Enrollment for the program ends Sunday, October 2 , and the program officially begins Monday, October 3, 2016.
What You’ll Learn & What You’ll Get
Module 1: Gain an experienced, insider’s view of the International Education and Meaningful Travel field/industry from how the space is structured, who the key players are, the big issues/topics of the day, and the inside baseball of what makes this industry tick.
Module 2: Learn how to build your professional brand in a way that works and helps you stand out in the crowded international education space.
Module 3: Learn how to identify, establish, and grow relationships in a way that feels good to everyone. Your professional network never looked so good!
Module 4: You’ll need more than passion to land a job in international education. In this module we dive into the knowledge and skills necessary to transform from participant to professional.
Module 5: Everyone says you need experience to get a job in IE. In this module, I show you how to get practical and relevant experience in international education to help you land your dream job.
Module 6: This is the culmination of everything we’ve tackled in the program. We’ll package up your brand, knowledge and skills, network, and experience to create resumes and cover letters that get noticed, read, and onto the “yes” pile.
6 In-depth Training Modules will take you through the course material. The modules are video-based, but you’ll also have access to the slides to follow along. You have lifetime access to the material so you can keep up week to week or go at your own pace.
6 Live Group Coaching Calls. Each week you can join me for a live group video chat where I answer any and all questions you have about the program, launching your career, the IE industry, and more. These are candid and we dive deep! (Of course, all of these are recorded and you can go back to them any time.)
Lifetime access to the video lessons(as well as access to the slides for each one). I’ve designed this program so you can complete it in just 6 weeks, but you also have the option of going at your own pace. Review your favorite modules and pick it back up whenever you’d like.
A comprehensive workbook we call the Roadmap filled with checklists, questionnaires, cheat sheets, scripts and worksheets for each module.
Lifetime access to the GPI Community, an exclusive forum for asking questions, sharing your progress, offering feedback, meeting others in the course, posting opportunities, and linking to helpful resources.
Lifetime access to any future trainings, masterclasses, and bonuses added to the Global Pro Institute.
“Mostly, I felt deflated because no one would give me a chance to apply my talents, knowledge, and experience,” Brooke says, about her own experience breaking into the field of international education.
The Global Pro Institute is the culmination of Brooke’s decade-long career in international education and meaningful travel – from grad assistant, to senior vice president, to founder and CEO of her own travel company. The program weaves together tried and true approaches to networking, skills building, knowledge development, gaining experience, and the mechanics of applying for and landing a job you love. Brooke has not only applied these strategies to her own career, but has hired, trained and coached others to do the same.
The Global Pro Institute will prepare individuals to take charge of their career and prepares them to tackle any transition from getting a job, landing a promotion, transitioning in and around the various roles within the field, and anything else they can dream up.

Enrollment closes on Sunday, October 3 at 11pm CST.
Note: David Comp and IHEC Blog are affiliates of the Global Pro Institute
Back in November 2015 I posted here to IHEC Blog supporting the Global Pro Institute which was a new comprehensive professional development and training program for aspiring international education professionals and that I had signed up to be an affiliate.
Well, my wonderful colleague Brooke Roberts has just launched the second Global Pro Institute for Spring 2016 and based off of feedback from alumni of the Fall 2015 Global Pro Institute there are two options for you to choose from this spring if you are interested.
GPI Foundations – This is a self-study, self-guided version of the program. You’ll get full access to all of the video lessons and materials for each of the six Foundations modules. On top of that, you’ll be able to download all the PDF Workbooks, checklists, and calendars associated with each module. This is a GREAT option for anyone who just wants the content and doesn’t feel they need the community, weekly/monthly coaching, master classes, etc.
GPI Mastery – This is the FULL PROGRAM EXPERIENCE! You’ll get all the GPI Foundations modules, workbooks, checklists, and calendars PLUS 24/7 access in our online community, group coaching with Brooke and the Inside Study Abroad team, access to our full library of masterclass interviews, over 8 hours of resume critiques, 7+ hours of past group coaching call recordings….AND several other bonuses to enhance your experience.
Here’s everything included in the Mastery (Full Program) experience:
Brooke will also be offering some free training this week if you are interested
I’m a big fan of Brooke and I fully support what she is doing to help new international education professionals as they enter and navigate the field. If you are interested in learning more you can link to the Global Pro Institute through my affiliate link here.
