Recipients

General public, multilaterals, governments, credit agencies, banks and private companies, academic audiences, partner organizations, current and potential clients, think tanks, CAF officials, the media, and opinion leader

 

CHALLENGES

a) Little clarity on CAF’s role and leadership; b) IDB has greater standing in Latin America; c) Big communications focus on technical, as opposed to human, aspects.
 

INSIGHT

Humanize CAF’s communications by creating and executing an orbital strategy focused on connecting the institution to its WHY as opposed to its WHAT, highlighting what sets its apart, and firmly correlating the knowledge and leadership of its executive president with the institution itself, as well as underscoring CAF’s contribution to Latin America’s sustainable development.



 

Solution

To achieve the set objectives, generate engagement with the intended audience, and capitalize on anticipated opportunities for CAF –the Development Bank of Latin America –, our team focused on developing and humanizing the organization’s reputation and image and on strengthening the positioning of the executive leadership, supporting a process of continuous change within the institution and thus transforming the way in which it interacts and communicates. This led to the execution of the Ongoing Reputation Management and Proactive Executive Leadership programs. The strategies developed after these programs were implemented included a collaborative component with other Newlink areas of expertise, including Integrated Production, Creative & Branding, Branded Content, and Social Marketing.
