  • The thread that pulls all our communications – from speeches to proposals -togetherOUR COMMUNICATION CORECaptures what we do and must be used in all communications, if only in senseUndaunted – about not shying away from challengesDetermined – use our knowledge to do what we know needs to be doneMedical expertise – our USPToughest places – captures fragile states in a consumer friendly, digestible wayWe stay – crucial and our one and only point of difference. Says health system strengthening without ever having to say HSS. Which is a good thing as no one knows what HSS is...Core of how we work and why – ties to strategy and values
  • This is about the way we communicate, the attitude, tone of voice and images – how we present ourselves. Should also reflect the culture of the organisation, each team and department so we have to communicate this.
  • For example
  • It’s about not being held back, even when the timeline is too short and we are coming across internal barriers, though we needed to respond to the agenda taking place in the public. Would have been far easier not to do this internally and there was a fair bit of negativity but we carried on!
  • How will you talk the brand with your teams, will help with culture change in the organisation
  • What we look like – medical experts, health, frontline, emergency, toughest places etc
  • Need to become more corporate and obvious that it is us talking, beginning of the processComms team do not have resources to offer much more than responsive support
  • JWT...etcGo back to your teams and talk about the brand in terms of what it means for them, for you, for decision making.We will run this induction for all teams over the next month
