SMILEs directors, Matt Lees and Nathan Monk, have been co-opted to the board of the Higher Education External Relations Association (HEERA) after their contributions to the organisation. As Chief Creative Officer (CCO) and Chief Technical Officer the duo will help to advise its membership on digital strategy and continue to support the organisation’s digital implementations.
Stephen Allmark, Secretary at HEERA, said:
“SMILE have been an invaluable asset to HEERA over the past year, so we’re absolutely thrilled to welcome them aboard and evolve our online investments.”
Nathan Monk, director at SMILE, said:
“We’re really chuffed to have this appointment. It’s an incredible opportunity for us to play a part in shaping the industry as a whole.”
Nathan also said that as part of their commitment to HEERA, all of its members would be given priority access to its EduLab initiative (http://edulab.wearesmile.com/) which launches later in 2016.
