“Growing Global Power of CSR” Conference

The “Growing Global Power of CSR” conference attracted 300 keen participants to Nigeria’s economic capita Lagos to learn, network and discuss how companies NGO’s and the local and state governments can find new ways to improve the lives of Nigerian people.

Microsoft, MTN and Bank PHB all gave presentations on their respective CSR initiatives and the benefits they are deriving from their activities. Hope Worldwide, a global NGO with a significant presence in Nigeria was able to discuss their non-profit perspective.  Mr Albert May from New Era partners gave the keynote lecture.

Speaking on ’The Power of Partnership’, Mr. May said,  “in this  global crisis it is critical that CSR initiatives focus on the benefits of good partnering with other stakeholders so as to maximize social change with the budgets that are available”. Mr. May further highlighted that, "although CSR programmes differ in different parts of the world, most companies now  understand that there is a ‘Triple Bottom Line’ which means they must focus on economic, environmental and social concerns".

Also speaking at the lecture, a former Secretary of Health under Chief. Ernest Shonekan’s Interim National Government (ING), Prince Julius Adelusi-Adeluyi, underscored the impact of CSR in contributing to national and global development.
