The organizational change towards responsible business demands, specific sustainability know-how and skills gained through experience in CSR projects is achieved through dedicated sustainability and CSR trainings. Whilst we have conducted our own series of workshops & seminars we intend to expand our outreach and increase knowledge transfer in 2014 and 2015.
Helping us to develop the new curriculum
We are looking for Partners to help us develop a new training curriculum both online as well as face to face. Our aim is to create a portal to information, case related expertise, practical insights, best practices, tools and guidelines for professionals and companies engaged in driving the organisational change towards the responsible businesses agenda.
If you are a CSR organisation or training company that can support the development please contact us directly to discuss further.
Participating in or leading a Workshop
If you are an individual or company that wishes to attend a workshop or have a need to host an in-house session please contact us directly to arrange
We aim to ensure that our trainings are effective and hands-on, with a balanced distribution between theoretical concepts and mind sets and their practical application to the actual economic and social environment.
The delivery method is a dynamic mix of presentations, case studies, group exercises, debates, with the aim to keep the audience focused with an alert and enthusiastic spirit.
Who should attend?
We recommend this curriculum to those professionals who are planning to or are already involved in implementing CSR initiatives and are keen on enhancing their CSR competence.
Our courses are also suitable for managers who want to pursue new career opportunities in organizations committed to sustainable business, are interested in improving their knowledge in sustainability management or are required to fulfill regulatory requirements or reporting.
