As part of its social awareness initiative "Making it Our Business", Dubai Chamber of Commerce & Industry in collaboration with Vital Voices Global Partnership and the US Middle East Partnership for Breast Cancer Awareness and Research, hosted a Cause Marketing Workshop at its premises last week for the Charter companies participating in the ongoing fight against breast cancer campaign.

An expert on the subject of Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) activities Emily Callahan trained representatives from participating companies in ways to market and publicize CSR activities for individual companies and how to take those activities to the next level.
She focused on the creation and expansion of goals and plans for the participating companies' cause-related marketing initiatives including four basic steps as well as ideas and plans that could be instantly implemented. Emily's presentation highlighted the leveraging of some of the most successful marketing efforts in gaining media coverage and means of reaching out to the highest number of consumers.
