How to Connect Emotionally with Alumni? | Daniel Cohen | LinkedIn

This short blog post touches on our main strategy for Engaging Waves. The author shares - "Each school has an incredibly valuable asset in its brand that needs to be properly leveraged. The more you leverage your school brand, the greater the trust and emotion that will be generated - the greater the engagement."
