A month of project presentations, final reports, award nominations and a deep dive into membership strategy…

Consultation and brand narrative development projects with The University of Plymouth (as a partner of Communications Management), Bournemouth University, and the University of Nottingham Ningbo Campus (UNNC), pictured (as a partner of Cairney & Company) reached their conclusion with client presentations, report read-throughs and a suite of insightful recommendations and quick wins dominating the team’s diaries in September.

Michael’s main focus continues to be on an intensive, 6-month project as Special Adviser to the President – and Executive Leadership Team – of CASE. Leading a root-and-branch review of CASE membership, marketing & communications, partnerships and the vision for CASE in the eyes of global marcomms professionals, Michael is deep in data, financial forecasts, market research and staff consultations to reorient CASE as a member-centric organisation for the 21st Century.

And there was some surprise news this month too as, having been named PRCA Small Consultancy of the Year earlier this year, Brand & Reputation has been shortlisted for the PRCA’s national Grand Prix awards in the same category with a ceremony at the Sheraton in London in mid-October.
