Hi Daphne

Thanks for saying hello. I checked out the West Sands website and I've got to say its very impressive!

As for Coethica, we are a CSR consultancy with almost unique expertise in engaging with the smallest of business as well as corporates. I'm off to Turkey next week an behalf of the Chambers of Commerce to deliver a workshop around CSR for SMEs (bit of an oxymoron I know!).

For more information check out our website (currently being redeveloped) www.coethica.com and my blog http://davidcoethica.wordpress.com or http://twitter.com/davidcoethica (sad but it works!)

Good to see more UK based contacts on here!

Thanks,

I would like to ask one smp0le question ? Do you feel that the corporate sector,and the Govt will ever give priorities to local communities vs a vs their enterprises.
The basic question which come to me mind is,
whether a body which is much concerned about its balance sheets, profits, ROI and question of its share holders, will ever give priorities to the sentiments of local community? The basic idea will be to earn more and more money and then donate some of it as CSR fund to maintain a balance of greed and local resistance for this...May be it sounds a bit cynical, but I find it very true in my last 40 years of being with local Tribal village people, who are contineuously loosing their land and home for mining and larger plants.
Try to see it from the point of view of local communities.....rp

Thanks for getting in touch Daphne. I'll certainly let you know when the Changing Consciousness website is up and running - a bit at the mercy of web designers, but should go live within 10 days.

I notice on your profile page that you're interested in emerging markets. That is of great interest to me too and I've recently worked with IFC, CDC, Actis and others to better engage the private sector in sustainable development. Maybe there's something here for us to speak about. I haven't got anything specific in mind, but I'm always looking for people with complementary approaches and experience to work with.

What do you think?
