Great course with great examples!

Jeff Z.

United States of America

Marketing, even when intentions are good, can all too often be a negative contribution to society and humanity. Goodvertising is a fantastic course to help guide you’re thinking as a brand builder and shaper to help usher in forward-thinking, purpose-driven companies that can be a force for good.

Diana T.


The course is well structured, with helpful materials, links and questions to think.

Great course! Simply amazing and engaging.

Nina J.

United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland

This course is full of thought-provoking questions and ideas to help uncover and maximise your true purpose (because we all have one, even if we don't know it!) The ideas work just as well for you as a person as they do for your brand, so it's fabulous value!

Paulius R.


Where this course really stands out it's some amazing research, cases and templates for your own goodvertising.

Beatriz P.


Really good to help demystify this idea of advertising being bad and that only lies to the consumers. And how can you do more than advertising more than just sell.

Aaron B.

United States of America

Purpose based advertising for good is the future. Appealing to the conscious cuts through all the BS.

Ulaanbaatar P.


Was a very good journey. Learned many study cases.

Matt P.

United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland

A great course and should be mandatory for agencies and brand owners alike. Purpose is a collective responsability and this course provides a great insight into what other brands and business are doing (globally) in addition to a great foundation knowledge.

Louise W.


Great coverage of the concept and practise of brands 'doing good' and all associated issues.

Christos L.


One more unique course by unique people.

dan s.

Full of actionable tips and useful insights and data to support the argument for purpose-driven business.

Oladele F.


Brands are people, the course helped to reaffirm that brands must begin to treat the consumers as more that just a buying statistic. The lessons were sharp and straight to the point, I particularly found the extra reads very helpful.

Aliza R.

United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland

This course really made me think. So many brands superficially engage in social movements, but to do it well is an art form. Bravo to the team who made this.

Sherif A.


This course is very interesting, insightful and informative. It brakes down how to build a purposeful brand in a very easy and understandable way.

Stephen B.

United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland

Is being seen to be good a marketing fad? For some, probably, and this course demonstrates how jumping on the bandwagon can go badly wrong. Yet, for those of us who espouse ethics in every move we make on, or off-line, at work or as citizens of the world Goodvertising is truly a good thing. This course is a primer for a trend that is predicted to grow in the next few years. No longer can we simply push products at people because they do the job. Today, they must also be more ecological and be seen to help our wider comunities. No one can affort to ignore this important course and the trend it signals.

Cynthia W.


Good course, interesting to learn from so many great examples and was fun too.

Matt B.

Really well structured, and super engaging to learn thanks to the game-like approach of the platform. Wonderful case studies and reports to provide further information and reading. I rate this course 5/5!

Marquis B.

Highly recommend this if your running or helping to grow a business in today's world. What I really enjoyed about this was that it was not too self righteous, it's a space that's talked about a lot and this course provided a good overview with brilliant examples and case studies.
