In the Trenches of Benevolence: Real World Challenges in Cause Communications - Collaborations for Cause 2012
Moderated by Dan Lamont.
Can visual storytelling be strategic? The answer’s yes, and it has to be if it wants to inspire change. In this moderated panel Non-profit and Corporate Social Responsibility representatives describe successes and failures in the creation and distribution of content aligned with strategic goals, from helping to raise awareness to delivering content that delivers actions such as raising funds. The panel will discuss questions such as “How does the storyteller deliver a product that they’re proud of and at the same time deliver a product that can meet strategic communications goals?” “How does the content creator pitch stories, and clearly articulate the ROI to the funders and to the partners.” Dan Lamont
