Rob McFaul, Co-Founder of #ChangeTheBrief Alliance will explain how
Rob McFaul, Co-Founder of #ChangeTheBrief Alliance will explain how we all need to take action to use communications to influence and promote more sustainable consumer choices and behaviours. In addition to taking action on 5 fronts in our own agencies :business operations; production; media choice; awards and events.
Alone, agencies will struggle to make a difference, but together we’re a formidable force that has the expertise to disrupt, influence and initiate real change.
#ChangeTheBrief Alliance is a not-for-profit partnership between agencies of every size and type – media, creative, design, PR – and their clients, learning and acting together to directly address the challenge of the climate crisis by promoting sustainability via every channel available to them.
