Speaking Engagements at 2021
International Education & Marketing Events

Presenting at Upcoming International Education and Marketing Events

As Founder and Managing Director of Jackfruit Marketing, Jackie Kassteen is often on the road delivering inspiring keynotes and interactive masterclasses to an international education audience.

The years 2020-2021 have obviously been slow for international travel, however, we continue to run several online training sessions and masterclasses for our clients. Jackie has also appeared as a guest lecturer online for State University of New York (SUNY) Albany, Coventry University, and IH London.

Looking ahead, we are particularly excited to present at a number of online conferences and support the only event of its kind dedicated exclusively to the scholarship landscape.


NAFSA Annual Conference
1-4 June 2021

Poster Session: Vietnam’s international education scene and recruitment potential

We are proud to announce that our poster will be featured in this year's NAFSA's Conference. This poster features data and tips from the Vietnam Market Report which Jackfruit Marketing created for BMI. The report offers a deep dive into the country’s demographics, economic growth, education system, enrolments across all sectors, regulations and reforms. It also provides access to a lengthy track record of outbound statistics by key destination markets, as well as a review of the country’s latest trends and most pressing challenges, including best practices for those looking to build links in post-Covid Vietnam.

  • Have ideas to develop for the themes behind your own personal brand story.
  • Understand how to customise your brand story for different audiences or occasions.
  • Have sample frameworks to build your story around.
  • Understand how to create a powerful personal story to get (and hold!) someone’s attention and to help you stand out from the crowd.
  • Learn how to leverage your international education experience in your personal profile and brand story.
  • Have a system for keeping track of stories as they unfold that can contribute to your personal story collection.
