Previous Sessions:

HERDI South VIRTUAL 2020 Overwhelming Success

“Awesome as usual,” “Thank you for putting together the perfect panel,” “Use me anytime to talk to other companies about the HERDI experience.” These are some of the many unsolicited testimonials from partner company executives. Similar kudos come from our Advisory Board members, impact leaders of the South’s community colleges: “Wonderful experience!”, “Great interaction with company reps”, “I really enjoyed learning about X and their solutions for Higher Ed.”


There is no doubt “going virtual” this year was a complete success! HERDI South 2020 was remarkable. Feedback was outstanding. “Practice, indeed, makes perfect,” and all of us at HERDI agree the scores of virtual panels we hosted during the Fall and early winter helped to develop best practices for online panels that we are eager to share with future Clients.

HERDI Fall Meeting in San Francisco Exceeds Expectations

HERDI Advisory Board members as well as new and returning client/partners were treated to special events at this fall session.  Beginning with an In-Service educational presentation on Blockchain at the amazing SALESFORCE headquarters building, the community college presidents then had their semi-annual meeting and reception, hosted by SALESFORCE. ORG.

In addition to having the largest number of panels to date, every event was sponsored and executed with perfection.  Two New Companies:  K12 INSIGHT and  ACUE  joined nine Returning companies: ORACLE, CLASS LINK, FERRILLI, STRADA EDUCATION NETWORK (DXtera,Institute), CENGAGE, QUALTRICS, SALESFORCE.ORG, BLACKBOARD, and BIOMETRIC SIGNATURE ID.  Evaluations completed by the college presidents/chancellors as well as the client/partners confirmed the commercial/academic value of the HERDI process where students are the key beneficiary.


This also served as a great kickoff for HERDI Innovate (click here) with eight new client/partners and a great deal of enthusiasm.


The next HERDI meeting is scheduled for September 28 - 30 in Chicago and will fill up soon.  Contact Toni now to reserve your spot.
