Corporate Social Responsibility is an emerging imperative that is relevant to business consultants who are working with organizations
Vancouver, BC (Vocus) April 16, 2010
A panel discussion will explore how to do well by doing what’s right at Consulting Conference 2010, the management consulting conference sponsored by the Institute of Certified Management Consultants of B.C. May 28 – 29 in Vancouver, B.C.
The three managing partners of The Acacia Group from Kelowna, B.C. will present a session called The Triple Helix of People, Planet and Profit – How to Work with Clients to Weave Corporate Social Responsibility into the Corporate DNA.
"Corporate Social Responsibility is an emerging imperative that is relevant to business consultants who are working with organizations," said Penny Lane, a managing partner of The Acacia Group. "An understanding of CSR will support consultants who want to look for enterprise-wide solutions that address the interest of all stakeholders as well as support employee engagement and increase awareness of the triple bottom line of people, planet and profits."
The interactive workshop will feature examples of leading organizations that are demonstrating efforts to fully engage in the communities in which they do business. Participants will leave with a broader knowledge of the importance of CSR in the business world as well as some tools that will allow them to query the status of the organizations they work with or buy from.
"They will also be introduced to a unique model that demonstrates CSR as not just a ‘nice-to-have’ add-on within the corporate realm but a true enterprise-wide competitive advantage," said Lane.
The three speakers are experienced in providing interactive and informative sessions that are designed to facilitate learning for the participants.
Penny Lane specializes in leadership and Evidence-Based coaching, facilitation, strategy development and project management. Christine Bonney has extensive consulting experience in both the private and not-for-profit sectors. Dave Harrhy brings a lifelong passion for social justice and corporate social responsibility to his work.
The Triple Helix workshop is one of 12 sessions at the conference, which is designed to help business consultants enhance their consulting value to clients, to themselves, to the profession, and to society. The conference will also feature a keynote presentation with internationally renowned management consultant Dr. Alan Weiss, author of more than 30 books about consulting.
