Ethnic Diversity Communications Seminar

Ethnic Diversity Communications Seminar

The business case for reaching and engaging with diverse/ethnic communities from a commercial perspective.

Has it ever crossed your mind that there is a big gap in the market to reach out to ethnic communities? The demographics of the UK’s population are changing rapidly. Communities classed as minorities will soon be a majority.

Bearing this in mind, as a communicator you need to keep up with the times, trends and patterns of the UK’s diverse population.  Doing the same old ‘marketing’ & ‘PR’ thing of just targeting who you know will eventually leave you with poor results. Now is the time to make that change and make ‘communication’ more inclusive to reach all diverse audiences for your agency and your clients. The one-size-fits-all approach has omitted a huge number of diverse communities.

A fine example of this can been seen with the four big supermarkets chains. Each of them are battling every day to increase their marketing efforts, in order to be ahead of their competitors in the ethnic food arena, by delivering key messages and designing specific creatives to reach and engage with diverse/ethnic audiences during Ramadan, Diwali, Eid, Chinese New Year and beyond. Ethnic groups have a combined disposable income of £300 billion and spending power of £46 billion. British businesses and multi-national brands can not afford to neglect this lucrative audience whose population stands at nearly 10 million in the UK and rising!

Mavis Amankwah, founder of Rich Visions and one of the most influential people in PR (PR Week PowerBook 2009-2015),  invites you to an insightful seminar on how to reach ethnic audiences.
