Communications with purpose - fad or future? [EVENT]

Communications with purpose - Fad, or future?

 

Purpose-driven businesses have been shown to out succeed competitors in terms of customer loyalty, employee engagement and accounting measures, certainly at Cannes Lions more campaigns have been reported with strong statements about purpose. What is an authentic and coherent approach to a Purpose-led business strategy? Are we seeing a rise in ‘purpose washing’? Insincere, forced or inconsistent attempts can backfire - hard.  When it really comes down to it, what does the consumer intrinsically care about?
