Beam | Helping the Department of Health to deliver important advice during the Covid-19 crisis

News April 16, 2020

‘When Beam opened our doors in 2000, we had one mission, to find new ways of working in a digital age to help and support our advertising industry with the highest level of customer service possible.

Today our community, and nation face one of the most challenging times in history, and our mission at Beam remains the same: to support our clients and get their campaigns delivered with unparalleled customer service.

Over the past three weeks, we have worked very closely with the MullenLowe London agency to create a unique pipeline to deliver the important advice around Covid-19 coming from the Government and the Department of Health and Social Care.

Following daily internal briefings from the DHSC client, MullenLowe created, shot and mastered regional public health message campaigns within hours. The Beam team managed the QC, final copy clearance, Harding test, subtitling, station instructions and delivery to broadcasters within 24 hours of the original briefing.  

Together we managed to get the most vital and up to date information to the nation and more importantly to those who are most vulnerable.’
