We are thrilled to announce one of our many new client wins!
We have had a very exciting start to the new year at Hunterlodge and are thrilled to announce our newest client win, The Varkey Foundation. We have been hired to assist in showcasing a new creative direction for The Global Teacher Prize - an initiative of The Varkey Foundation which was established in 2014 to raise the stature of the teaching profession. The Prize is an annual US $1 million dollar award given to an exceptional teacher who has made an outstanding impact, not only on their students, but on the communities around them. It operates the patronage of His Highness Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, UAE Vice President, Prime Minister, and Ruler of Dubai.
We have created an extensive social media engagement campaign which aims to deepen digital engagement around The Prize. The campaign is currently running on social channels under the hashtag #TeachersMatter and highlights the extraordinary teachers nominated for their outstanding contribution to the profession. The top 10 nominated teachers were announced on the 17th of February in a video announcement by none other than Stephen Hawking. Watch the video.
Marc Boxser, Global Director for External Relations & Strategic Initiatives at The Varkey Foundation said: "Teaching plays a critical role within society and this award provides the ideal forum to celebrate the profession and acknowledge the exceptional dedication of teachers around the world. Hunterlodge impressed us with the quality of their ideas and we are delighted to be working with them on promoting The Global Teacher Prize."
Rob Hunter, Managing Director of Hunterlodge said, "We are delighted to be working with The Varkey Foundation. Teachers fulfill such a crucial role within society and we are thrilled to be working on a campaign that highlights the inspiring work of all the shortlisted teachers."
