No matter our passion for a cause or the vital importance of our message, if we don’t understand the needs, challenges and desires of key target audiences, our messages and campaigns will fall short.

In this audience-focused session, we’ll look at different ways to overcome the barriers that might stand between your messages and the people you’re trying to reach. 

We’ll look at different aspects of accessible communications, from pitching to audiences of all ages, to reaching adults with a learning disability or low literacy levels, to ways to make your communications available to people with hearing or visual impairments. 

There’ll also be a chance to look at campaigns which have used audience insight to target specific audience groups, understanding the barriers, and finding the right media, messages, language and channels to connect with a defined demographic. 

If you have ideas of what you’d like to see on the agenda, speakers to suggest or a case study to propose, please contact Jess.
