Doing Good by Doing Good shows companies how to improve the bottom line by implementing an engaging, authentic, and business-enhancing program that helps staff and business thrive. International CSR consultant Peter Baines draws upon lessons learned from the challenges faced in his career as a police officer, forensic investigator, and founder of Hands Across the Water to describe the Australian CSR landscape, and the factors that make up a program that benefits everyone involved.
Case studies illustrate the real effect of CSR on both business and society, with clear guidance toward maximizing involvement, engaging all employees, and improving the bottom line. The case studies draw out the companies that are focusing on creating shared value in meeting the challenges of society whilst at the same time bringing strong economic returns.
Peter Baines spent 22 years with the NSW Police in Australia leading teams into various international disaster and crisis situations. These international deployments included Bali after the bombings in 2002, the Thailand Boxing Day tsunami of 2004, Saudi Arabia in 2010 following floods in Jeddah and Japan in 2011, after the earthquake and tsunami. As the leader of Australian and international teams I developed strong leadership skills and messages that have proved much in demand on the speaking circuit.
The key messages of the keynotes are delivered at a contextual level, allowing the audience to identify and relate to the challenges – yet the stories are so different to their lives that they find deep interest and intrigue in the challenges and outcomes our team faced and then achieved.
During Peter’s deployment into Thailand he met a group of 32 children all of whom had lost their homes and their parents to the tsunami. At the time of meeting them they were living in a tent. Peter then formed a charity “Hands Across the Water” to raise money and bring attention to the needs of the children. The charity has grown to support seven different projects across Thailand, including a HIV orphanage and homes for girls previously trafficked in the sex industry. They have raised over $8 million AUD since inception and they have never spent a cent of donors money on administration or fundraising.
