“There are some causes that really [by] having more information and generating more awareness is impact in itself…sometimes marketing really is a form of impact, other times it can be too much.”

For our fifteenth episode, Asanga Seneviratne and Reegan Quick sit down with Marie Pederson, Senior Strategist at TMI Strategy, a strategy consulting group specialising in young people and social impact working alongside some of the world’s largest not-for-profits and corporate firms. Together they discuss the importance of reaching out to build your network and tips for how young people should do this, corporate practices and culture in relation to social impact, the value that primary research and data analytics add in developing a solution to any problem, thoughts on measuring impact and a perspective on spending within non-for-profits.
