In January 2015 we launched our ‘Give More. Become More.’ awareness campaign for Sports Leaders UK. Within six months, our short films featuring young people telling the stories of sports leaders had been seen over 250,000 times, and ‘followers’ and ‘likes’ on social media have increased by over 3000.

We also sent out over 120,000 emails to schools and 2,400 DVDs containing a master film and a suite of promotional material. We have also created a dedicated webpage and secured top Google rankings for key campaign words and phrases.

Following on from this success, the Give More. Become More Brand was extended into a new refreshed identity and campaign for ‘I Can Lead’ an introductory award to sports leadership. Within the first month, over 200 schools and colleges had requested further information.
