Shared Value Project
Communicating with purpose

The importance of companies communicating their social and environmental efforts was explored at the 2018 Shared Value Summit APAC.  During the Summit week SVP convened a group of communicators from our member organisations and along with global shared value thought leader Mark Kramer discussed the vital role communicators play in crafting the shared value narrative and the importance of tailoring these messages to different audiences in order to effectively convey the good work companies are doing.

It is these stories we are hoping to uncover as we open submissions for the 2018 Shared Value Awards.  If your organisation has a great example of shared value in the Asia Pacific region or you know of someone who is leading and inspiring the movement then we want to hear from you.  Applications close 10 August.

In episode 3 of the Shared Value Podcast I catch up in New York with 2017 Shared Value Trailblazer Ramana James, EGM Shared Value, IAG and explore the connection between shared value and the corporate culture at IAG.
