Bringing NEC’s core values to life with Dylan Alcott and Joseph Deng.




Despite being one of the worlds’ leading tech companies NEC were invisible to many, and needed to drive greater awareness of their brand through a B2B content marketing solution with some purpose led content, in the lead up to one of the worlds’ largest sporting events.




Australian’s admire sports people and none more than those who overcome personal challenges to focus on how they can be the best they can be on the world stage.




Employ a B2B content marketing strategy of using NEC’s sporting ambassadors, to create a powerful content campaign. That captures the essence of high-performing talent and how it relates to business, and NEC’s core value: Let’s play to win.




We brought NEC’s sponsorship of gold medallist Dylan Alcott and rising 800m star Joseph Deng into a powerful B2B content marketing platform as ambassadors, 3rdspace created a series of assets that delved deep into the psyche of what it takes, to play to win. As in sport, business and life it comes down to focus, relentless work, innovation through technology solutions and of course support.
