Capstone Vietnam is pleased to announce that Dr. Mark A. Ashwill, Managing Director, will speak at a pre-conference Vietnam student recruitment seminar, to be held from 10 a.m. to 12 noon on Monday, May 29, 2017 at a downtown center operated by California State University, Los Angeles.  (The exact address will be provided to confirmed registrants.)

Dr. Ashwill is an educational entrepreneur who has lived and worked in Viet Nam for over a decade.  Before becoming managing director of Capstone Vietnam, a full-service educational consulting company with offices in Hanoi and Ho Chi Minh City, he served as country director of IIE-Vietnam from 2005-09.  He was the first US American to be awarded a Fulbright Senior Specialists grant in 2003.  Ashwill is the author of the widely cited Vietnam Today – A Guide to a Nation at a Crossroads, published in 2004 by Intercultural Press, Inc.

 A 2011 Hobsons consultant’s report noted that “The work of Dr. Mark Ashwill, formerly of IIE, and the former US Ambassador, Michael Michalak, helped to promote the United States as a destination for Vietnamese students, and strengthened the ties between the Vietnamese Ministry of Education and Training (MoET) and US universities.” In June 2012, Jeff Browne wrote on his Vietnomics blog that “Much of the credit for the strengthening US-Viet Nam higher education link goes to Hanoi-based educator, Mark Ashwill, director of Capstone Vietnam and key advisor to student-run nonprofit VietAbroader, both of which help Vietnamese students navigate the American education culture.”

The Riding the Wave Vietnam Recruitment Seminar will consist of a comprehensive overview of current market conditions, recruitment tools and techniques, and different types of recruitment strategies.  This event is free of charge and refreshments will be served.

Don’t miss the opportunity to hear Dr. Mark Ashwill, speak about recruitment in Viet Nam, which ranks 6th among all places of origin.  Monday, May 29th.  Add it to your calendar today!
