InSites Webinar Series: Exclusively For International Schools (Free)

Design Thinking: More Than A Homepage | May 20 & May 22

Your website needs to be more than just an eye-catching homepage — it needs to provide users with a complete understanding of who you are as a brand and school. From color palettes to news modules, every element of your website needs to be carefully thought-out and placed for maximum impact. Join us to learn how design treatments share your school’s mission, spirit and essence, and define your value proposition.

Hosted by Angelo Otterbein

Please join Finalsite for 30 minute webinars exclusively for international schools. We have sessions set up for both Europe, Middle East and Africa times as well as Asia and there is no charge for these events. If you have any questions or concerns, please contact Debbie Eisenach.(debbie.eisenach@finalsite.com)
