Short Takes: communication with purpose on the 20th of September 2012

· Blog

There’s so much media around us, trying to outshout each other and get their Key Messages in our heads; it seems to get harder to get through all the time.


Some seem to think that it’s about shouting even louder; blast Facebook, buy Twitter friends and just repeat the message over and over again. Social media seems to only add to the information overload, and now we seem to reach everyone but touch noone.

Maybe it’s not about being louder

Organisations and people who communicate with purpose don’t seem to need to shout. People just naturally connect to the message.

How do they do that?

This Short Takes is about learning from people who communicate with purpose and build a following based on shared values.

Anthony Carroll

Anthony is the Brand and Marketing Strategist for Yellow Sneakers, a Brand & Marketing Strategy Consultancy that specialises in helping businesses & organisations develop their brand.     Anthony will talk about purpose driving a brand or business, using the example of TOMS shoes, which was founded in 2006 by Blake Mycoskie. Blake witnessed extreme poverty while travelling in Argentina and decided to do something about it.

One For One

Toms shoes is based on an innovative social business model that Anthony will discuss in his talk at Short Takes. For every pair of shoes bought from Toms, they donate a pair.

Parking Anxiety

For those who aren’t Crazy Dutch People who insist on riding the bikes everywhere, Newtown can seem a bit daunting parking wise. Here are some parking tips for when you visit the HWP headquarters. King Street parking is possible, but a bit off a long shot in the evening. There’s a carpark behind HWP on Wilson St, as well as the Franklins car park on the corner of Lennox and Church Streets. If all else fails, try the Camperdown Memorial Park on Federation Road. Our address is level 1, 270 King Street in Newtown. Here’s the Google Maps link.
