The Power of Many

If Coronavirus has taught us anything, it’s that we’re stronger when we come together. Brands are inspiring people with shared values to unite, now more than ever. Charities are increasingly adopting the attributes of social movements, whilst corporate brands are looking to partner to demonstrate their social purpose. So, let’s come together over a virtual coffee and a muffin to unleash our brands magnetism for the greater good – join us as we explore the power of many.

Kindness will keep us together

British Red Cross launched a public manifesto to cut through panic and fear and remind us that we can and will get through this Covid-19 crisis by pulling together. The campaign provided a clear and compassionate view of what kindness in this crisis means – with tangible ways to get help and give help. The campaign brought to life the charity’s brand essence of being the movement that connects human kindness with human crisis, and that together we are not powerless, and we are not alone.

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 to be added to the mailing list.

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