Branding and Marketing Advisors to Independent Schools



Branding and Marketing Advisors to Independent Schools



We have enjoyed getting to know — both professionally and personally — hundreds of wonderful people who dedicate themselves to independent schools over the years and to help you solve your MarCom challenges. But it's time for a change.

Effective immediately, Turnaround will no longer be accepting new clients. (This is the bad news.) We will continue to work with our existing clients and encourage you to contact us at any time.

Instead we have decided to focus our attention on InspirED School Marketers. (This is the good news...for you.) InspirED is a free resource for school marketers that delivers brilliant ideas and brain food to make your job easier. Check out our podcasts, blog, case studies, Brilliance Awards and school MarCom survey. Head over there now and be sure to sign up for InspirED's newsletter so you don't miss a thing.  

Thank you for an awesome 25 years. This isn’t goodbye — we’ll see you on InspirED. Tell your friends and let's make some sparks!

What is Turnaround?

Turnaround Marketing Communications is an award-winning consulting firm with two decades of experience in independent school branding and marketing for over 85 institutions including K-12, K-8, 9-12, coed, single sex, boarding and day, as well as faith-based and non-sectarian schools. 

Our goal is to make your school known for what it wants to be known for, help your school attract the qualified students you want, motivate the donors you need, and make connections with the alumnae/i you want to reach.

We know independent schools well and work diligently to understand your specific school. We look at every school with fresh eyes and assume nothing. Turnaround holds a mirror up for our clients and offers creative solutions to unique challenges. Our goal is to position your school in its best possible light—showcasing your strengths, elevating your image to both internal and external audiences, and the delivering results you need and want.
