About the Speaker:

Brad J Ward, Chief Explosion Officer at BlueFuego

Brad has been working in the Higher Education setting since college. He most recently worked at Butler University, where he served as the Electronic Communication Coordinator in the Office of Admission for nearly 2 years. As one of the few higher education professionals whose work is focused in social media / social networking, web content, email, and data research, Brad has taken web-based recruitment and admissions to new levels.

With one year of Twitter usage at an institution under his belt, he provides tangible feedback and lessons from the experience.

His work at Butler has been featured in several magazines and websites such as Campus Technology, University Business, The Chronicle of Higher Education, Inside Higher Ed, Wired, CNET, New York Times and more.

During his time at Butler, the University had two record years of enrollment in the school’s 152 year history. Applications had surpassed the total number of apps for the previous year at the time of his departure in January. His efforts, in addition to the hard work of everyone in the Butler Admission Office, has helped them achieve these goals year after year.

Brad is the co-creator of http://www.bloghighed.org, a site that aggregates many popular higher education blogs. He blogs at http://squaredpeg.com and has spoken at conferences around the world. To read what others say about Brad and his work, please visit http://tinyurl.com/aboutbrad.

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

"Brad, This 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
