Blackeight assumes responsibility

Also this year the team from Blackeight is committed to helping children in need. Together with »Connect minds4change«, we will help thirty children from Manila return to school next year.
 

 
Connect minds4change´s goal is to give disadvantaged children access to better education and with that a new life perspective. Next to building small libraries in remote villages and furnishing self-mounted solar cookers, the work focuses primarily on returning street kids into the school system long term.

What does Connect minds4change´s work in Manila look like exactly?
Volunteer teachers in Manila give children daily lessons right on the street, at the same time and at the same place. Straightforward and without complications. For some children, this access to education is their first in years. In the beginning each lesson usually lasts less than two hours per day, later even longer. Yet every hour is important for the way back into the school system. In the following years, on-site education will be crucial for their continuing journey through life.
 
With its work in Manila, the organization strives to…
 
…identify obstacles impacting school attendance
…re-establish routine playfully
…promote interest on school and knowledge
…create prerequisites to re-enable school attendance again
 
The volunteers from Connect minds4change have not only built a trustworthy and secure contact-point, but have also established the conditions for long-term school attendance.
 

 
Who is behind Connect minds4change?
Franziska Bammert initially founded Connect minds4change with friends in Munich. Supporters came swiftly from all over the world — from US book donations and pan-European volunteers from all over Europe, to native Filipinos and Filipinas who play an important role on-site. The focus is to understand what is really needed in order to create useful and sustainable projects. Direct on-site aid and personal exchange is in many aspects possible and for Franziska Bammert desirable.

Prof. Dr. Karsten Kilian and M3ve visited Blackeight

30 students of the Master’s program »Brand and Media Management« (M3ve) and the program’s director Prof. Dr. Karsten Kilian (Markenlexikon.com) visited the Munich-based brand consultancy Blackeight on June 23rd 2017.
 
Together with Manuela Liebertz, Marketing and Brand Management at MAN Truck & Bus, our Brand Sparring Partner Daniel Höpfner and Anna Scheuernstuhl provided insights into brand management at MAN Truck & Bus. After a vivid and exciting discussion, the group visited the MAN factory in Karlsfeld where our guests from Würzburg could experience the implementation of the brand strategy into day-to-day work first-hand. At the end of the day, the group visited the brand architects Schmidhuber & Partner.
  
»The insights into the daily business of the brand consultancy Blackeight were very exciting. Our Master’s students still talked about the findings from the presentation and the knowledge acquired from the discussion long after the visit.«, said Prof. Dr. Karsten Kilian. »Many thanks for the hospitality. We would be glad to come again.«
 


Partnership of MTP Munich and Blackeight is getting started

Since May, Blackeight has been a regional sponsor of MTP one of the biggest, cross-generational marketing network for students and alumni in Germany. As a regional sponsor, Blackeight will support MTP Munich from now on.
  
To mark the partnership’s kick-off, Dr. Matthias Hüsgen and Anna Scheuernstuhl introduced Blackeight’s »Brand Sparring Partner« consultancy approach at the MTP’s weekly plenary session. They highlighted how a brand can be used as central controlling instrument. The Blackeight team will functionally and methodically support the MTP members in their future project activities.

B8 @ Pforzheim University of Applied Sciences

Last week, Kathrin Rothfelder and Anna Scheuernstuhl followed the invitation of Prof. Dr. Brigitte Gaiser und Prof. Richard Linxweiler and talked about the topic »Brand Management – From Strategy to Action« at Pforzheim University of Applied Sciences. For Anna Scheuernstuhl this meant to go »back to the roots«, as she herself is an alumna of the master program »Creative Communication & Brand Management«.
  
In their lecture, the two brand consultants discussed the relevance of brands, demonstrated how brand differentiation works and showed how brand strategy can contribute to that.
By means of two selected B2C and B2B cases they then demonstrated, how brand strategies are developed in practice and how their rollout can be successful.
  
A vivid Q&A session ensured a great ending to the visit at Pforzheim University.
