Connections are Important in Life
Whether it’s family, friends, co-workers or kindred spirits. And without them, we’d be pretty lost.
We believe everyone should have the opportunity to form new connections quickly and easily. So we help large organisations bring their people together – all from a single platform.
Creating happier, more engaged communities, because life feels better when we experience it together.
-Excuses to Meet
According to the World Economic Forum one of the three biggest threats facing the world in 2019 is LONELINESS - where it comes to lifespan, loneliness is just as toxic as smoking 15 cigarettes a day!
For universities this is a difficult one to monitor through conventional means. How do you support a student feeling isolated who does not seek help? A stronger focus on prevention is necessary and this can be achieved by creating the right environment to help students connect from the start of their journey.
Communication is the exchange of information, but there's no soul in that.. and then there's “connection”. A connection takes place the moment you feel someone cares about you.. an emotional connection, the exchange of humanity. We all have emotions, that's our currency.
In this session, Eduardo Cordova, founder of Excuses to Meet, provided a live-demo showing how the Excuses to Meet platform helps first year students build meaningful rapport with one another even before they arrive on campus for their first day of class.
The AMOSSHE National Conference is the UK’s foremost opportunity for Student Services leaders to share expertise and good practice, develop strategy and skills, and build professional networks. Building communities is one of its key themes in 2019.
