Description

Inaugural Businesses Driving a Difference - an innovative approach to Corporate Social Responsibility

Giving back to the community is often mentioned as a priority for decision makers, however, it's not as common to find businesses with a sturdy Corporate Social Responsibility strategy in place. It often ends up being an afterthought or a box that needs to be ticked, so businesses will just donate money to a cause and carry on.

With this event, we present innovative ways that businesses can incorporate CSR into their daily activities in meaningful ways that not only benefit the community but still contribute to business goals. We will be talking about different opportunities to contribute that are more than simply putting your hand in your pocket.

Win-win is the key term here.


MC: Suzie Lightfoot, Personal Brand and Corporate Image Consultant.

Keynote Speaker: Phil DiBella, talking about his personal experience with corporate social responsibility and how he has impacted local charities during his time in business with DiBella Coffee.
