DENVER (2013) – CORE THOUGHT is pleased to announce the 2nd Annual STRATEGY for GOOD SUMMIT, a five-day web conference that kicks off on February 25, 2013 in celebration of International Corporate Philanthropy Day. The STRATEGY for GOOD SUMMIT brings together business leaders committed to the social good and being active in their community through corporate social responsibility (CSR), high impact community engagement, and philanthropy. Thirty thought leaders will share their insights, experience, tips and strategies with other business leaders interested in strengthening their own give back efforts.
The web-based conference is open to anyone interested in learning about how to make their company’s community engagement more impactful. The speakers represent a range of perspectives and approaches to giving back - from the Fortune 500 and experts in corporate social responsibility, cause marketing, employee volunteering, and grantmaking to independent, ‘cause committed’ companies whose business models have social good “baked into” their DNA. “Leaders from Ford, Barefoot Wine, Zhena’s Gypsy Tea, Rally Software, and Realized Worth are among those who are generously giving of their time to share insights with SUMMIT attendees,” says Sue Hyatt, founder and CEO of Core Thought and the Strategy for Good Summit Host. “The STRATEGY for GOOD SUMMIT is designed to inspire companies to get more strategically involved in their communities and to demonstrate the many options businesses can choose from to give back.”
“No business is too small to make a difference – there are many ways to give that draw on a company’s unique skills and resources – it’s not just about dollars,” she adds. “Barefoot Wine, once small is now the number one wine brand in the U.S. because of its great product AND its commitment to the social good. The founders grew the company through a unique approach to worthy cause marketing – not traditional advertising ”
“The STRATEGY for GOOD SUMMIT is exciting - not just because it’s the only web-based business conference of its kind - it’s exciting because it gives attendees access to 30 of THE very best thinkers about the role of business in communities - people and organizations most business people would never have access to and learn this kind of expert information otherwise,” says Hyatt. Speakers include: Margaret Coady, Director, the Committee Encouraging Corporate Philanthropy;
“The SUMMIT opens up the dialogue concerning business giving and corporate social responsibility to people everywhere – there is no travel required and the registration fee is only $47 to attend the 30 live calls or to listen to the recordings for 24 hours after each presentation. MP3s and transcripts from all presentations will be available for purchase once the SUMMIT concludes.”
