“If you’ve got ambition – go after it.”

I was at the screening of Bond’s new TV and Cinema commercial today, it’s a modern and good ad (compared to the other ones they show down here) which is supposed to strengthen Bond’s position as a “Chase your dreams, bring your ambitions to life” University. The Creative Director as well as the head of the Marketing was there for a quick FAQ and briefing of the mission and what the objectives are with the commercial. The Creative Director (which is an Australian multi-award winner for marketing excellence/campaign strategy etc) stated that the goal was not only to further enhance Bond’s positioning strategy as a “market leader” within the university sector, but also to make a new point of contact with the customers, being future students. The TV ad is going to be aired between some of the most favourite shows down here, including; Home & Away, Boston Legal and Grey’s Anatomy.

It’s a good campaign overall with well-stated objectives and missions. The campaign also saw the launch of BondSpace, which is supposed to attract to the new-comers by mixing a sort of MySpace/Facebook approach, it’s a pretty desperate try if you ask me, the only thing that little website has in common with the giants mentioned is the ‘space’ within the name.


Just ran into Ray Gordan, my Behavior in Organizations teacher from last semester. He gladly reported that I’ll be recieving the Academic Achievement Award for class nr. 1 of last semester’s class. Pretty sweet, now I’m just waiting for Peter Clarke to tell me I got it for Customer Analysis/Consumer Behavior as well, I think I’ll share it with Nils in that subject. But, Boooyaa anyway!
