Are you considering running a campaign this year?

Do you need to mobilise your staff, your colleagues, your constituency, your community, or indeed your nation, to take up a challenge, or a cause that you really care about?

Anything from increasing organ donation rates; improving crime reporting; electing a new MP or Councillor; raising much needed funds; taking a new product or idea to market; right through to impacting leaders and governments: It is all about campaigning. It is all about how you connect with your audience, with your followers, with your supporters, online and in person, and how you mobilise all the resources you have available, into action!
