World Congress of Accountants

The aim of the congress was to elevate the conversation of global accountancy, and the brand outlook of the host organisations. Here’s how we helped them achieve that aim.

The challenge

Can accountants save the world? The World Congress of Accountants 2018 aimed to answer this question in the affirmative with a bold content program promoted via our integrated marketing campaign.

More than 5,500 global delegates from 119 countries rallied to the call to participate in ‘one chance to shape the future’ of their profession.

The solution

Addressing team, technology and strategy issues has enabled RSPCA Queensland to make effective use of its resources and grow its fundraising program.

  • restructured the fundraising program
  • recruited personnel to key roles
  • successfully managed Christmas, Summer and Autumn appeals to budget
  • implemented a new CRM on the Salesforce platform, including connection to existing animal and volunteer management system

The Outcome

  • The attendance of 5,722 delegates from 119 countries (a 44.5% increase on previous attendance), a high session rating of 4.27/5 and 96.9% positive sentiment on social channels.
