It Takes a Village
Senior Vice President/ Director of Global Marketing
June 14, 2013--In my work developing corporate cause-marketing campaigns and generating engagement for nonprofit initiatives, I’ve learned that very few projects get traction without strategic partnerships and strong coalition-building. This year’s CECP Summit featured several sessions showcasing the need for partnerships, but none so clearly presented the case as the standing-room-only panel “Leveraging Partnerships to Advance Your Objective.”
Curated by BNY Mellon’s R. Jeep Bryant, the panel featured Avon Foundation’s Carol Kurzig, Sabre Holdings’ Barbra Anderson and Hasbro’s Karen Davis. All of the panelists emphasized the importance of addressing challenges collaboratively—businesses, NGOs and government entities all need a seat at the table. Each panelist described her company’s programs and the absolute importance of well-thought out and strategically-planned partnerships to those programs’ success.
