Social media campaigns I wish I’d done


25 June 2015

This ‘I wish I’d done’ seminar was an energising afternoon of inspiring quick-fire presentations.  

Our 10 speakers had seven minutes each to share the social media campaigns that have inspired them. They explained why their chosen campaign was extraordinary, what we can learn from it and how it challenged thinking, changed the game or found new ways to engage.

The votes are in for the social media campaign you wish you'd done. Here are your top three:

In third place: #LoveHasNoLabels by The Ad Council

In second place: #LikeAGirl by Always

And in first place: #MyMothersNameIs by UN Women
