Director named one of SFU's top newsmakers

March 06, 2020

Congratulations to SFU Continuing Studies marketing and communications director Rachel Bennett on being selected for an SFU 2019 President’s Newsmaker Award! 

Rachel was named the President’s Strategic Communicator of the Year, an award that recognizes a faculty or staff member who makes a significant impact on advancing or shaping public knowledge and opinion through a strategic communications plan aligned with SFU’s institutional priorities. 

Rachel led Continuing Studies’ latest marketing campaign, which included a new and unconventional marketing initiative: pop-up cafés. Last fall, Rachel and her team hosted six pop-up events at office towers in Surrey and Vancouver, where they engaged with the local community by serving free coffee, offering prizes and sharing information about courses and programs.
