Dr. Bernadette Carmody, Head of School

The International School of Amsterdam (ISA)

Due to his vast leadership experience in systems and operations, we relied on GSO and Jon's insights in all sorts of areas. Most importantly, with very short notice, he stepped into the role of Director of Admissions. Jon brought to the role a perfect blend of people skills and task management skills.

 

It was the best thing that could have happened for the school at the time as, under his leadership, the Admissions Office ran more effectively than ever before, the school captured its highest-ever enrollment, and he secured a very rare 100% of full tuition payment before the commencement of the following school year.

GSO and Jon helped lead the digitization of ASH's Admissions Office. During this critical project, which he completed on time and within budget, he customized and implemented an entirely new technology platform and trained key users across ASH.

 

He also provided valuable strategic and tactical insight to the ASH Leadership Team and key stakeholders across the school on a variety of other topics and practices. 

 

A savvy and creative design thinker, Jon is positive, flexible, adaptable and a great team player who quickly builds rapport.

GSO and Jon were the key to ensuring that I had a seamless transition from my role as Director of Admissions at the American International School of Chennai (AISC). He gave me mature and transparent communication tools that he'd already made the school's incoming Director and Board fluent with.

 

Jon also secured the school's highest-ever enrollment and 100% full school year payment before I walked in the door. This while implementing a new Veracross portal and screening/hiring one of my top Admissions analysts.

 

It was a great situation to inherit and I highly recommend working with GSO as they can do this for your school with not only Admissions but all areas of operations.

(Implementation at American School of The Hague)

Jon has great knowledge of international school admissions, IT skills, and project management, so he was the ideal person to work with. The project was reasonably large, involving process reviews, change management, staff training, data migration, and many other aspects. 

 

Jon's communication skills, along with his friendly, positive attitude certainly played a huge part in helping the implementation of the project to be a successful and enjoyable experience. I hope that I may have the opportunity to work with GSO and Jon on future IT projects!

American International School of Guangzhou (AISG)

Jon nurtured and grew the skillsets of those within the office, often providing guidance, feedback, and support to members of our leadership team and instilling the highest maturity level in our daily function. His mentorship and support have played an integral role in my confidence and skill set as an administrator. 

 

Jon helped our high-performing international school streamline our processes, implement organizational change, and develop innovative new strategies. He is a real people person and understands how to build consensus in a culturally diverse environment and across a wide variety of stakeholders.
