Questions, up for discussion

While social, solidarity or impact economies are making more and more noise, what are the current marketing issues in these circles? Is it always about funding, or do governance and leadership also come into play?

On the other hand, the private sector is increasingly exploiting the concept of corporate social responsibility to position itself and even distinguish itself from the market. How do we determine what is merely opportunism and what is a sincerely responsible practice? And, here also, what about leadership (as far as businesses are concerned, as well as advertising agencies)?


Diversity and originality -- 100 to 200 participants are expected for each event including, every month, numerous representatives of the public, private and community sectors in Montreal. Follow the event page on Facebook to stay up to date with various announcements pertaining to this event.
