GABV Secretariat, Zeist, The Netherlands
- Request for Proposals (expressions of interest): Development of a co-branding strategy and a toolkit
- Marketing and Communications Intern
- Project & Knowledge Management Intern
The Global Alliance for Banking on Values (GABV), founded in 2009, is a network of banking leaders from around the world committed to advancing positive change in the banking sector. Our collective goal is to change the banking system so that it is more transparent, supports economic, social and environmental sustainability, and is composed of a diverse range of banking institutions serving the real economy. We connect banks, banking cooperatives and credit unions, microfinance institutions and community development banks and support their work on systemic change of financial system. Our members focus on one shared mission – to use finance to deliver sustainable economic, social and environmental development, with a focus on helping individuals fulfil their potential and build stronger communities.
At this moment of our growth, we have recognized the need of creating a co-branding strategy and toolkit that would enable us to become a stronger and more recognized brand and allow our members to use the global brand of the movement to strengthen their own branding locally. The successful party will work together with the GABV Secretariat and the Global Branding and Strategic Communication Committee as well as the Marketing and Communication Community of Practice to create a strategy and set of toolkits, implement a short pilot project with three members and refine the final document based on the received inputs.
- April – start of work, initial meetings and plans for the implementation of the project
- May-August – project research, coming up with the first draft of the strategy and proposal for toolkits
- September – receiving comments from the Secretariat and the Advisory Committee
- September – refining the draft and toolkits, and creating a plan for pilot implementation
- November– piloting
- December – final co-branding strategy and set of toolkits delivered.
- The proposed budget to include all necessary activities and associated costs with the activities (e.g. telephone costs, travel if necessary, graphic design, development of surveys etc).
- Develop a co-branding strategy
- Implement the pilot projects with three members
- Develop a full brand program and toolkit
As the membership transcends cultural and language differences, we have to make sure that the strategy is simple, flexible and easily translatable into different languages. We take a positive stance on changing the banking industry by working with members, co-workers, partners, interested public, and policy makers. We don’t bank bash or take a them-versus-us stance.
During 2017, GABV organized a number of conference calls and in person meetings, gathering communications and branding experts from the membership pool to discuss and set the initial ideas about the project. The minutes will be shared with the successful party with a detailed debrief. In a nutshell, the following has been recognized as important elements of the GABV brand:
- amplify the GABV’s purpose of changing the financial paradigm
- represent what GABV members mean together
- help members consolidate a better position in their markets over the long term
- emphasise that members are not alone in doing this work but are part of an alliance
- work with members’ own brand in specific stakeholder situations
- be a hybrid between a seal of approval (or label) and a traditional brand
- be easily recognisable across multiple stakeholders and audiences (influencers, politicians, regulators)
