Brand and digital innovation

Brand Breakfast
14 February 2019

Most of our interactions with a brand are now through digital channels, whether an app, smartphone, tablet, laptop or good-old-fashioned desktop. With digital ever evolving and new possibilities emerging, brand and digital should be working closely to embrace these opportunities. But the two are rarely well integrated.

At this event, we explored the relationship between brand and digital and heard success stories from NSPCC and O2 and Age UK on how they’ve been innovating with digital at the heart of the brand.

To benefit from key insights from the event read ‘Five top tips for innovating brand and digital’.

About the Brand Breakfast

CharityComms’ Brand Breakfast is a group for professionals working in brand to come together to discuss issues of mutual interest and share examples of good practice.

The format of the meetings is usually two or three presentations on a specific topic, followed by small group discussions, providing a combination of best practice and peer-to-peer sharing.

These events are a great opportunity to meet your peers, compare notes on workplace practices and share successes, ideas, challenges and inspiration. The group is designed to encourage networking and peer to peer support, sharing issues in a ‘safe’ environment.

If you’d like to be one of the first to hear about these events, please email Sarah Cutress to be added to the mailing list.

If you’re interested in presenting at a future event or joining the steering group, please contact Vanessa Weddell.
