Celebrity cause management
Many celebrities are keen to use their fame to promote an issue. If managed well this enables the issue to gain publicity and support with the general public.
In the area of celebrities and global intergovernmental events such as the Climate Change meetings and Rio+20, these are difficult events to understand. They are often managed by people who do not understand how these events operate or how to ensure a celebrity giving their time can do it effectively.
I have organized or helped to organize a number of events at the UN for celebrities this includes:
- Joseph Arthur participation in the Opening of Breaking the Silence - Lest We Forget Exhibition in the UN HQ. Joseph Arthur sang two songs including A River Blue which he singers with former child soldiers from Uganda.
- Supporting the UN DPI who organized a concert in the UN General Assembly Hall to commemorate the slave trade. There were amazing performers Akon, Peter Buffet, Blind Boys of Alabama, Gilberto Gil, Nile Rogers and Ky-Mani Marley. There were also great readings from Whoopi Goldberg, Staceyann, Carl Lewis and CCH Pounder
If you want to know how to work with the UN then I can help you develop that relationship. If you want to develop a profile around a particular issue then I can help you do that. This would include:•Developing a Cause Project Plan
- Arranging speaking slots at events;
- Event planning;
- Arranging press conferences;
- Visiting projects.
