Workshop Sessions and Speakers

Putting brand, marketing and communications at the heart of your organisation

Charities come in all shapes and sizes. So do budgets and expectations! Whether large or small, with dozens of staff or just one, brand, marketing and communications are at the heart of your organisation’s success. Fulfilling your purpose as a charity depends on your ability to integrate effectively and engage with audiences of all kinds – whether in their tens or in their millions. As a CEO or trustee, you have a key role to play in making that happen. This session will help you to develop a more integrated organisation, demystify brand, identify your audiences and use straightforward marketing and communications strategy models. Using practical examples from many years of experience in the sector the session will give you the confidence and the tools to reinforce the role of brand, marketing and communications in your organisation.
