For any readers interested in meeting up for training, discussion, scenario planning and crisis / dilemma solving workshops around sustainability, this link might be of interest.
Through our new company, Stakeholder Intelligence, we've been working with the Business Social Compliance Initiative, to deliver training and discussion sessions for retail companies.
The next set of training workshops are on May 24 and 25 in Brussels. Blog readers are welcome to join us.
The other attendees are generally large and medium sized European retailers.
We spend day one discussing internal communications on CSR/sustainability.
This includes best practice in two way employee communications, engaging middle and line/unit managers and senior executives / the board.
The structure is based around best practice presentations and then small group work to solve problems and create action plans and to do lists to take back to the office.
Day two is similar, but with a focus on engaging suppliers, NGOs, and the media.
If you'd like to join us, it's only 400 Euros for two days. Now there's a bargain.
The slides I use represent quite a lot of condensed information on best practice, and the dilemmas we work through are real-life problems that companies face every day.
Here's the link for more information on how to sign up. Hope to see you there.
