As part of our ongoing commitment to community development, tml Partners is a proud to be working with Pimp My Cause, an online match-making platform that connects marketing professionals looking to contribute their expertise pro bono with highly rewarding pro bono charity projects in need of professional marketing support.
If you’re a marketer looking to diversify your experience, make new connections or showcase your talent, Pimp My Cause brings marketers together with good causes in three useful ways:
- Through their free online matching platform that’s available for any good cause or marketer anywhere in the world
- Through their Challenge talent development programmes for marketing teams
- And through their dedicated matchmaking events.
Their online platform works like the online dating of pro bono marketing. Marketers can find a cause to fall in love with that is a good match for their interests and their marketing skills. Causes can post help wanted ads letting marketers know what type of support they need and can message marketers directly through the platform to ask for their help.
Their Challenge programmes provide teams with live charity briefs that have to be fulfilled with zero or low budgets and that are built around the team’s specific talent development needs and with expert coaches available to support the process. The experience is transformational and results is a team that is able to deliver more efficiently and effectively on business priorities and the legacy of a positive social impact.
And Pimp My Cause’s events bring marketers and causes together around specific themes that are of mutual interest. For example, their Trustee Matchmaking events have successfully connected charities looking for marketing-oriented board members with senior marketers interested in taking on a trustee position to use their expertise to support a cause that’s meaningful to them and to also gain valuable board experience as a stepping stone towards paid non-executive directorships.
Anna Mullenneaux, Chief Matchmaker of Pimp My Cause, is available to help marketers and causes find the right fit for them and she can be reached at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Paul Skinner, Co-Founder of Pimp My Cause, said: “We are delighted to be working with tml Partners to reach some of the most talented and effective marketing leaders in the country, giving them opportunities to create life-changing benefits for the people who most need them by supporting our network of charities and social enterprises with their expertise”.
