The future of work has arrived.

Even the local job is now global. Industry is demanding that graduates have both the technical and intercultural skills needed to work in diverse teams and build products for global users. But, only 40% of students complete and internship in college and only 10% study abroad.

Podium's global learning experiences close this gap, increasing access to in-demand skills for all students. Offered as a track within standard university semesters, this virtual experience supplements existing courses with hands-on technical skill building and a unique focus on intercultural communication.

Got a question?

Ask us directly

Alright, but what exactly do you do?

As a creative agency we work with you to develop solutions to address your brand needs. That includes various aspects of brand planning and strategy, marketing and design.

I don't need a brand strategist but I need help executing an upcoming campaign. Can we still work together?

We hope so! We create customized brand solutions for our partners so if one campaign is what you need help with, we're totally on board.

Are your rates competitive?

Our rates are fair. Good work comes at a price and while we're not going to gouge you for profit, we do believe in fairly compensating all our stakeholders. We price our projects accordingly.

Why do you have a monthly project cap?

We want to ensure every project gets the attention it deserves. It's a promise we make our partners and that usually means not taking on more work than our team can handle.

Still have questions?

We have (almost) all the answers


Do you do social media content?
Yes, we do! We can work with your team for your content needs or we can take over account management altogether— we do it all.
Can I hire you for one campaign?
You absolutely can! We'd love to build a longer relationship but we're here for shorter affairs too.
We need an app to go with our website. Can you handle that?
You bet. We can build the best app you've ever seen (and the best website too).
I need a viral campaign by Friday. Help!
Oh no! We offer you lots of hugs. Creating successful campaigns take time and lots of back and forth. While we can work on tight deadlines, we can't whip up miracles of that sort. If you have an urgent need, let's talk?

Account & Pricing

My budget is tiny. Can I still hire you?
Of course! We love a good challenge.
We're getting flamed on Twitter. Can you do something about it?
It really depends on why you're getting flamed, but we'll do our best, we promise.
What's the best way to drink coffee?

Let's shape the future of global education, together.

Book a free consultation

Here's where we get to know each other and figure out if we're a good fit. If we are, our team will set up a few more calls to gain an in-depth understanding of your brand and goals.

Develop strategy

Based on the consultations, we'll work with you to formulate a plan of action. How simple or elaborate this is will depend heavily on the needs of your organization.

Take off

It's time to execute the campaign. We'll see it through to the end and make sure you hit your pre-decided targets. Last minute glitches, post-launch errors— we prevent them wherever we can and handle them wherever we can't.
