Re-calibrate your communication for impact.

You’re already creating impact by working towards achieving your organization’s SDG goals. We know how to tell the story about the work that you do. Why not put our minds together and build on our collective knowledge to take your impact to the next level?

Join us for new insights and fresh perspective as we look at your impact work through the lens of storytelling. You know your goals best, and we’re here to help you articulate them. 

Over lunch, you can share your case and see how the Makmende approach to remote, authentic storytelling can help shake things up. You’ll come away with a better understanding of your key messaging, audience, storytelling and remote production potential to build a robust content strategy. This way, you can get back to building your program and working to drive change (what you do best) and we can flex our creative impact storytelling skills to help you achieve and celebrate your goals (our forte). 

Every session we focus on a different SDG and impact area, so take a look at what’s coming up below and sign up for the one most relevant to you. We can’t wait to dive deep to help you hone your impact storytelling to create change! 

Remote video production for Impact investors

Although impact investing is hot and an increasing ‘must’, it can still be quite a challenge for funds to communicate about ‘impact’ to investors, partners and stakeholders. More specifically, to explain concretely what makes your fund stand out and to profile yourself amongst many other funds.

So how do we put a face (and a heart) to your sustainable investment? By telling the story through a human lens and by conveying the necessity and importance of the impact in daily lives of communities worldwide, we can show there is a higher purpose and bigger value to your investment than just “return on investment”.

Dates: 19 September, 26 September, 10 October
