What happens when you bring together teams of mentors, and student mentees to help solve the communications needs of social enterprises and NGOs? Find out more by registering for the inaugural Sustainable Communications Programme Showcase– brought to you by the Asia-Pacific Association of Communication Directors (APACD).
Launched in February 2020 in Hong Kong, the programme connects experienced communicators, students, and mentors in virtual teams to solve communication problems for social enterprises and NGOs. In our first round programme teams came together for three months to support the Children’s Medical Foundation and SENsational Consultancy.
We’ll be delivering the event via live broadcast with our two virtual teams giving their final presentations as well as sharing their experiences of how to stay on track and ‘being agile’ against the backdrop of Covid-19.
More about the programme
The programme brings together experienced communicators, early stage communicators and marketers, and students from The University of Hong Kong’s Journalism and Media Studies Centre.
It is to create a virtuous circle where giving back happens in every way – advancing experienced communicators, nurturing emerging talent and supporting our local communities.
Despite the challenging circumstances and the need to work virtually, both teams of students, mentors and mentees successfully pitched their communications plan, took forward implementation and adapted their solutions to ensure relevance in the current environment.
For many of the students, this will be their first-ever presentation to share with a large and live audience of communications professionals their prepared strategic plan, approach, successes and considerations – preparing them for future work in the communications industry. Please register to support the teams and see the true meaning of “Sustainable Communications”.
