What we do
Comms Lab is 89up's innovation unit for non-profit communications. We work with the leading minds in branding and communications to sharpen thinking and practice around strategic communications and cause-based marketing.
89up helps great causes understand how they can reach the audiences who will maximise their real world impact. Our Comms Lab meets regularly with thought leaders, NGOs and campaigners to understand how they are putting cause based marketing into practice and what is needed to breakthrough to new audiences.
We work with the leading minds in branding and communications - the Comms Lab - to challenge our assumptions about how to implement cause based marketing and find you new ways of communicating your issues.
Comms Lab will be organising informal meetups for people working in non-profit communications quarterly throughout 2017.
If you’d like to join us for a Comms Lab meetup please drop Caroline Christie a line.
