Profile Information

Sector
I work for a company, I am an academic
Website:
http://acona.com/cr
About my work:
A sociologist by training, I recently completed my doctorate in business ethics as practice at the James Martin Institute at Said Business School. My research compares sustainability practices in the property, consultancy and extractive industries respectively (long story, do ask).

Since September 2008 I have been working as a CR adviser, but I am still mildly allergic to buzzwords, hot air and management speak. I am attracted to CR because it is so bloody complex yet so relevant.
Other Topics on my radar:
How to balance, on the one hand, demands for uniformity and standardised management frameworks with innovative, local solutions to unique problems.
