Over the last month there have been some great examples of how to engage an audience. Below I have listed some of my favourite ones and what we can learn from them.

 

#1 Clap for our Carers

 

A nationwide round of applause takes place every Thursday evening at 8pm to honour the amazing work of the NHS. People have also been painting rainbows to remind them how much we truly appreciate the work they do.

#2 Captain Tom Moore

With no introduction this one man fundraising machine has captured the nation’s hearts. Within a month he raised £32,796,450 for NHS Charities via his just giving page, become the oldest artist to reach number one with “You’ll Never Walk Alone” and became an honorary Colonel.
