Amanda Mackenzie is one of the leading marketers in the country. She is on the Executive Committee of Aviva and, as the Chief Marketing and Communications Officer, she is the guardian of the brand, customer and reputation. She is also a Non-executive director at Mothercare and a member of the steering group for the Lord Davies report on women on boards.
In November 2014 she announced that, with her company’s backing, she was taking a two-year break from her CMO role at Aviva to take on an executive advisor role at Project Everyone. Started by Love Actually director and Comic Relief co-founder Richard Curtis, the purpose of Project Everyone is to contribute to the effort to achieve the United Nations’ 2030 sustainable development goals on poverty and climate change.
Mackenzie has been brought in to make the entire planet – that’s seven billion people – aware of the goals. She will be telling us what she has learned from this unique global marketing experience.
Amanda has also agreed to second Anthony Thompson at our Debate at Portcullis House on 14th July on another topic.
Our conference on Friday 2nd September is fast becoming a must attend event. You can book for the conference on Eventbrite – Book here
