Ed Knight - Legacy presentation


Published on

Coca-Cola is the longest continuous sponsor of the Olympics. For London 2012 its activity wasn't spread over the month-long Games period - it started three months previously with the company's involvement with the torch relay. With so much activity, the sponsorship programme needed to combine creative excellence with military precision.

From the outset the strategy was to mirror customer facing comms activity with an internal programme designed to energise, inspire and engage Coca-Cola Enterprises' 5000 employees. The result was one of the most exciting employee engagement programmes produced. Coca-Cola Enterprise's communications director, Ed Knight, brings the Olympic Coca-Cola story to life.

    2. 2. Measuring whether sponsorship measures up "Over the past year Coca-Cola has worked with independent think tank Demos to create a new model of sponsorship evaluation that looks to quantify the social impact of sponsorship activity.“ "It will allow us to see what we do well, where we need to improve and how we can apply this knowledge to our future sponsorship and marketing activity. This is the first time a corporate sponsor has sought to design a tool to rigorously and robustly measure the social impact of their sponsorship activity."
