Bringing Disney’s Philosophy to Your School
Presented by Gigi Chinisci, former Assistant Director of Admission, Albuquerque Academy (NM)

Independent schools are facing more competition than ever before. Our energies are divided between not only our current families, but our co-workers, alums and even our potential families. By looking at Walt Disney’s business philosophy and exploring the science of positive psychology, this workshop will show simple practices that will help set your school apart from the crowded field.  

How can your school deliver exceptional service to its families? When does your disposition maximize your potential?  What are the proven strategies in handling negative people? This interactive workshop will answer these questions and many more.  Walt Disney developed a basic business credo that has carried the Disney Corporation to the top of the Forbes 500 list consistently year after year. These techniques and principles can easily be incorporated at your school and in other parts of your life.
