Management is experiencing an important economic and societal turning point where Ignition Program has its place as an actor and solutions integrator. Look Sharp supports Ignition Program in this transition to ensure that journalists and influencers, the core target audience of HR start-ups and businesses, are aware of what the program has to offer. Look Sharp also accompanies them to influence the public debate via the general press. Beyond the press, it is about identifying Ignition Program’s talents and using them to extend the reach of their program through think tanks, conferences, clubs, circles, and events.
