We value, and add value by, working in partnership. We know that the right people coming together, on the right topic, at the right time, makes real change happen.
Making Change Happen
Our Change Network will be a group of leading, diverse and committed organisations, from businesses, government and civil society. They will come together with our members to tackle specific consumer challenges and opportunities, and develop foresight, influence and innovation in a dynamic, constructive, results focused environment.
By doing this we all gain a unique level of insight that can help spark ideas and identify and catalyse unexpected solutions. Solutions that will lead to real and meaningful change, putting consumers at the heart of digital developments like never before.
