DESCRIPTION

Overcoming consumer fatigue with marketing; learning from the charity sector

Charities operate in a difficult sector . How can your brand/product stand out in a sector which is highly competitive, all brands communicating a desire for share of discretionary spend and typically at the same time. What tactics can you take? This sector certainly has more of an edge to it than traditional marketing. It is not a ‘soft’ option, nor an escape from commercialism. The charity sector has no choice but to be effective and emotional in its outreach.  It is multi – disciplined and relies heavily on digital for actionable data.It is a sector that offers a myriad of opportunities, so why do marketers so often overlook it?

Two esteemed marketers from the charity sector will address this issue, Catrina Sheridan, Director of Fundraising & Marketing, Trócaire and Richard Dixon, Director of Public Affairs, Concern.

Date: Wednesday 17 February (from 7.45am to 9.00am)
Venue: Fire Restaurant, next to the Mansion House, Dawson Street, Dublin 2

Cost: €20 for members and €30 for non-members.
