Major international charities and their work are now constantly in the news and their influence and incomes have grown hugely since Oxfam was founded in Oxford in 1942. Jack Lundie, Director of Communications at Oxfam, joined the charity in 2014 after working at Save the Children and having worked across a range of media, including Comic Relief, BBC Sport, and Deputy Editor of BBC Children’s programme Blue Peter.
At Oxfam Jack has since pushed an integrated model of multi-channel approach to use Oxfam’s cut-through in earned media on themes as broad as economic inequality, UK poverty, Gaza and Nepal as an opportunity to reinforce Oxfam’s core mission: to end the injustice of extreme poverty.
Jack will speak at our one-day conference ‘Is Marketing for Good the Future of Marketing?’ to be held in New College, Oxford on Friday 2nd September. Jack is a well-known story teller who will tell it like he sees it. Book here
