May 19-23, 2015 – American International School Lagos — Alumni Relations Feasibility Study

I am excited to return to Africa and spend a few days with the AISL community in Nigeria’s largest city. AISL is celebrating it’s 50th year in 2015 and school leadership and the Board of Directors wants guidance in deciding whether it will be prudent to invest in alumni relations. I have been retained to facilitate some critical first steps by developing a feasibility study for AISL. My work will incorporate research, interviews, and meetings on site, as well identifying requisite resources and support to ensure sustainable operational structure that promote lifelong engagement.
