EACD Webinar: Media Relations & Campaigns

Friday 22 November 2013

The EACD is delighted to invite its members to join an online session discussing Media Relations & Campaigns
 Keep Walking Greece. A breakthrough campaign that inspired an entire nation in its time of need
 In a challenging Southern European environment with a rapidly changing media landscape and overall declining marketing budgets targeted media planning and clever use of non traditional mediums like Social Media and creative PR is becoming a critical factor defining the success of any communications campaign. The Keep Walking Greece campaign is a great example of how to create a huge impact with a limited budget. Brilliant creative work based on a powerful consumer insight combined with an unconventional and targeted media approach managed to not only build the equity of the Johnnie Walker brand in Greece but inspire a whole nation in its time of need.
