Lambert Knows Education

Lambert Consulting believes that continuing to collect, share, and learn is the key to both personal and business success. With nearly two decades of work within Higher Education, Lambert brings his local and national award winning styles to class, event planning, and books.

Award Winning Class Development

The students heading to college today are smarter and more in touch with technology then ever before.  A faculty member standing in front of a white board is no longer well received by the students. It takes a balance of lecture skills and entertainment skills to not only have a solid syllabus created but to also have students engage in ways that creates the best learning environments.

Success Story

Client Ivy Tech Community College
Challenge

The Business Department found itself looking for new class development ideas to attract more students to their classes.  After seeing interest move towards other departments, including the culinary arts and information sciences, the Dean and other executives had to figure out how to get students to reengage with their courses and ultimately decide to stay and earn a business degree.

Results

A community engagement class was developed and approved by the college.  During these courses, students worked with business and non-profit leaders helping to solve actual business challenges during a 16-week period.  The end of term class resulted in students presenting a formal presentation of solutions to the client, a panel of judges, and their peers.  The success of this rebranding of class helped to see a spike in attendance and a renewed interest in the business department.  Lambert went on to win awards at the City, Regional, State, and National levels for Outstanding Teaching and Development.

Event Consulting

Conference attendees are some of the brightest people in the country.  When they attend any event, especially an educational one, they want to share and learn.  The pricing in today’s events market demands that all your details are synced and any possible “what if” concerns are addressed. Any misstep can become a public relations nightmare, which causes attendees to not return for future events, costing you time and money. It’s about surrounding yourself with the right team that helps to create a value driven event.

Success Story

Client NACCE
Challenge

The National Associations for Community College Entrepreneurship (NACCE) found itself stuck in limited growth when trying to engage and inform educators about their mission. There was limited interest from colleges and universities to join as members and the executive council needed to see their numbers increase, specifically when it came to the Annual Conference that they presented in new locations each year.

Results

An ambassador program was created and used as the platform to allow for more personal interaction with key decision makers at each member school.  Assigned to a batch of colleges, Lambert created an invitation program that helped to get more attendance at the conference while also creating off site tours that allowed continued interactivity even after the daily events had concluded.  NACCE saw both its highest and second highest attendance numbers during this time.

Advising Students, Parents, and Peers

When a high school student gets ready to take that first step into college, lots of questions must be addressed.  Even if the parents have attended and earned a college degree, the likelihood of the process being identical to when they went is very small.  There are tons of “how to” manuals and blogs that show the first steps but what happens after the student gets to the campus?  There must be a way to get some insight on the ins and outs of college in today’s world.

Success Story

Client Be The Lime: An Insider's Guide To College
Challenge

Lambert has been fortunate enough to teach at many excellent schools.  This list includes Hawaii Pacific University, Mid-Pac College, Penn State University, Indiana University, Ivy Tech Community College, and Southern New Hampshire University. The issues that seemed to exist at one campus were often similar to the issues seen at these other campuses. Issues with advising, the math department, office hours, and travel abroad challenges overlapped on multiple occasions.  To add to all this confusion, there wasn’t any information on the market that could be a simple guide to at least understanding how to address these problems.

Results

Lambert has created a quick read book that will be helpful for parents and students alike.  Taking over 15 years of faculty experience and tying into some of his time as an undergraduate and graduate student, Be the Lime works as the guide that addresses the Top 10 issues that most college students and their families face once they get that acceptance letter. All the stories are true, and the conversational approach allows readers to feel like they’re having a causal lunch instead of sitting through a lecture. Each chapter has some “lime slices” that gives advice on addressing these college challenges.
