    Business and social impact lessons from the LEGO Foundation and Right to Play

    On episode 3, JP and Matt interview John Goodwin (then-CEO, LEGO Foundation) and Kevin Frey (just-departed-CEO, Right to Play) about the relationships between brands, foundations, and social impact organizations.  They share insights on: how a company can effectively deliver social impact, tied to its business purpose, by supporting all elements of that ecosystem; how NGOs need to think strategically about their partnerships with brands and foundations; and how to build a brand idea -- in this case on "the impact of play" -- through educating all the stakeholders (governments, companies, and people) that must work together to drive lasting social change.

    Musa Tariq on brands and fundamental human needs (CMO, GoFundMe)

    On this episode of BRITE Ideas, JP and Matt speak with Musa Tariq, Chief Marketing Officer of GoFundMe. Musa gives examples from Nike, AirBnB, and GoFundMe – all of which he has worked for -- that exemplify his belief that brand building is akin to how people build relationships with each other. He also details how brands, at their core, are most powerful when they meet a fundamental human need. The challenge is effectively communicating the ethos of a brand’s core target – especially brands that are bought by a wide range of people – within and outside the organization. As individuals increasingly look to reflect who they are in what they buy, Musa notes, “I think its brands that come out and say, ‘I am ok offending some people to stand for something’” that will win the future.
