Daniel Albrecht was keynote speaker at the cross-sector collaboration event

NGOs meet businesses, European Chamber of Commerce China, 2015-08-27, Hilton Hotel Beijing 

Poverty, disaster, marginalized community: in a world where so many urgent social problems need tackling, two heads are surely better than one. That may be why collaborations between NGOs and corporations – where money and expertise are combined in driving for social change – are increasingly popular in the CSR field.

The European Chamber CSR Forum in Beijing is pleased to invite you to join us for a seminar, in which non-profit representatives from three organizations and their corporate program partners will present community involvement opportunities for business professionals. Presentations will explain how companies can build effective ties between their business and the greater community via strategic cross-sector partnership programs with NGOs.

Who should attend? 

CSR practitioners from both large and small enterprises who seek to engage non-profit organizations in their CSR programs are welcome to attend. Individuals who are interested in cross-sector collaboration are also welcome to attend.
