When: Thursday 1 October 2009, 6 p.m.

 “A mini-revolution is taking place among international and non-governmental organizations that are borrowing marketing strategies normally used in the corporate world to build stronger brands and partner more effectively with industry. What appeared to be a savvy trend before the current economic turmoil may now become a financial necessity. How can these two worlds with seemingly different agendas best maximise these new “partnerships”? Our panel brings together experts in marketing and communications who will share their insight, methodologies and provide practical examples.”
