Getting from giving; CSR life lessons

As a small or medium-sized enterprise (SME), should you be considering corporate social responsibility (CSR)? What are the demands personally and professionally? Is it all about giving or do you get something in return? Join Nicky Rudd from content marketing and PR agency Padua Communications as she takes you on her CSR journey.

Nicky will be sharing what she has learnt from volunteering with Surrey Young Carers, City YMCA and other more regional community initiatives over the past decade. She will be offering some tips to highlight what you need to be aware of if you are thinking CSR is going to be included in your future plans as well as giving advice on getting the balance right personally and professionally.

This talk is ideal for anyone thinking of volunteering and business owners who are looking to integrate CSR with their business strategy.
