I’ve heard numerous tales about the famous Red Badger summer parties, and this year I was lucky enough to not only attend, but also take on the challenge of branding the weekend. The Badgers and their plus ones were flown off to Malaga for a weekend of music, massages and mojitos.
We ran a two-day training session for Anthony Nolan to help the organisation adopt a more human-centric approach. The workshop was attended by representatives from different areas of the Anthony Nolan charity, from Technology to Social Media.
