Best ROI for Capita’s classroom of the future campaign 

The Classroom of the Future is a campaign created by Capita and national charity Young Enterprise with support from Omobono to advertise the launch of this year’s first ever Young Money Challenge, of which Capita is a sponsor. To maximise the impact of their sponsorship, Capita wanted to use this activity to help broaden Capita’s appeal with ABM targets.   

The campaign focused around children aged between 7 and 19 and how they felt key industry decision-makers should consider financial sustainability and responsible consumerism. Entrants considered the connection between money management and wider issues affecting local and global communities; a topic perhaps more relevant now than ever before given Covid-19Key industry decision-makers also participated as judges, perfectly connecting the two key groups. 

As Capita’s strategic and creative partner, we created a visual identity for the campaign and created targeted communications with an ABM approachNot only did this enable Capita to build relationships with key accounts, but also gave them all the opportunity to add further value by involving them in a social good initiative. 

Classroom of the future was a resounding success for Young Enterprise and for Capita.  

“This campaign has completely re-positioned Capita with key decision makers. We have been able to generate conversations with key decision makers with a campaign that feels real and extremely relevant with the challenges we are all facing due to the coronavirus pandemic. A great B2B marketing campaign that has taken the simplest of ideas and added real value.”
