As one of the best online virtual production, game development, VFX, and animation training providers in the world, CG Spectrum is a thought leader when it comes to virtual learning. Having been fully online since 2011, their portfolio of courses are led by award winning industry professionals who are responsible for inspiring and preparing the next wave of digital artists, as well as supporting major studios in up-skilling their staff.
Innovation is at the heart of everything CG Spectrum does as an education provider. Never resting on the competition, they decided to take their recruitment and marketing strategy to the next level with the help of The Ambassador Platform.
Prior to implementing The Ambassador Platform, the Admissions Team at CG Spectrum was often contacted by prospective applicants wishing to speak to a current student. They would then connect prospects with a suitable student to chat to over email or video call. Given CG Spectrum is a global training provider catering to several time zones, the process of connecting students to prospective applicants and finding a suitable time for both parties to meet was manual and inefficient. CG Spectrum wanted a place on their website where their internationally-diverse prospects could visit 24/7, and reach out to an ambassador who could answer authentically about life as a CG Spectrum student.
