Talking The Walk®2 is the all new, fully revised edition of the ground-breaking report first published in 2016.  This is Cavill + Co’s 7th report based on credible research. Talking The Walk®2 features Hailey Cavill-Jaspers’ interpretation of over 30 research reports, and what this means for companies & brands who are doing good and want to communicate effectively. In this day and age consumers – especially millennials – want companies to do good. But as we near the end of the decade epitomised by corporate scandals and institutional collapse, resulting in lack of trust and fake news, it’s almost a case of  ‘the devil you do, the devil you don’t’ when it comes to communicating good deeds. So ultimately it all comes down to communication. The focus of Talking The Walk®2 is how to communicate to millennials with a social good story so that it cuts through the noise and scepticism.

Brand new research December 2018

There is no other Guide like this. It is useful for anyone working in the corporate or non profit sector that is tasked with communicating social good stories. Because so much communication doesn’t land and so many dollars are being wasted.

In Talking The Walk®2 Hailey provides a powerful snapshot into the psyche of millennials and why 2018 was a pivotal year for corporates, over 100 stats from over 25 research reports, including brand new never before released research by Di Marzio Research that looks at millennials’ propensity to switch brands that practice social good, and a red hot statistic from December 2018 that reveals 1 in 5 have actively boycotted this year.

And the most common boycotting action was to stop buying a product (65% of boycotters said this).
