'In conversation with Sir Richard Branson and Mike Cannon-Brookes' was a highlight for many at the IX Summit.

PROJECT OVERVIEW

In October 2021, Momentum2 was engaged by Blue Impacts to provide PR support for the inaugural Impact X Summit Sydney, which took place virtually November 2-3 2021.

 

Impact X was created to bring national and international leaders in the climate space together to discuss what technologies, investments and policies are necessary to accelerate pathways to zero emissions in Australia.

 

The summit took place at the same time that world leaders were meeting in Glasgow at COP26. Over 1500 business leaders and over 250 climate tech startups participated in the summit, which is part of a global movement.

Momentum2 conducted media outreach and achieved  over 34 pieces of coverage across 28 publications, including print, TV, radio and digital coverage. This included multiple articles in top media targets including The Australian Financial Review, The Daily Telegraph, The Australian and ABC TV and featured interviews with a number of key speakers from the summit.
