Advice For Marketers
Have you ever looked at the expertise you have developed through your studies and professional career and thought – “with my experience and ideas, I could really make a difference to my favourite charity, NGO or social enterprise?”
Have you ever donated to a worthwhile cause and then thought to yourself – don’t I have more to give than money?
Or have you ever thought that however much you love marketing, you would love to take on a completely different project that would allow you to market something new and different that you feel passionate about?
