This was a presentation prepared by Naja Faysal (working at Rouge inc at the time) to be presented to the government in order to campaign for the International Donor Conference "Beirut 1" that was supposed to bring donations to rebuild the economy in Lebanon.
We need to come up with a campaign for the conference Beirut 1:
Following the conference of Paris II in November 2002, whose measures were, unfortunately, not completely applied, Lebanon needs now, more than ever, another world wide help program.
It’s during a critical economical, political, and social crisis that Mr. Seniora is planning to organize a forum to help our country. In other words, what’s going to be requested will be similar to the other programs, but with this time, the hope that it will lead to something.
Target Audience (who is the consumer) & Insight (what the consumer thinks and does now)
After studying the consumer, we found out that the Lebanese people are divided into two major groups regarding their opinion about the conference Beirut 1. There are those who believe that Beirut 1 will be similar to Paris I and II, thus an extreme failure (The Pessimists), and those who believe that Beirut 1 can be the change that all Lebanese are waiting for (The Optimists).
This segment is the pessimists, who feel that all the system needs change, and all people who are in charge of ruling the country are dirty. They claim that they have promised us too many and deliver little even nothing and they are selfish leaders searching for their own narrow personal benefit. Even this segment sees in a pessimistic way the situation regarding militia’s weapons and the way to control it especially that these militias are supported by Syrian and Iranian governments, the countries who still have interest in putting Lebanon under their control for serving their regional goals. “The Pessimists” are pessimistic regarding a new promise for Lebanon (Beirut I) believing that all money generated will be driven to some of the politician’s own benefit. They believe that the hole system is already corrupted and no chance for improvement unless a new generation of leaders are in charge.
This segment is the optimists, those who still have hope in Lebanon claiming that now the situation changed and the international community is controlling the corruption and putting an eye over the governmental actions for a better and free Lebanon that will attract foreign investors. In addition this group feels a real opportunity for Lebanon to be improved especially after the withdrawal of the Syrian troops by resolution 1559 and the government is trying to solve the Palestinian’s and Hezbollah’s weaponry. They see now that the government is free to take decisions for the sake of Lebanon. So, these people feel optimistic regarding the international donor conference held in Beirut (Beirut I) and support it in any way.
