Pimp My Cause has teamed up with our partners at EMR Recruitment to help more senior marketers become charity trustees.
Over the years we've heard from many experienced marketers who were interested in taking on a trustee role but didn't know how to find a cause in need of their support. Marketers have been interested in taking on a trustee position for many reasons including wanting to use their expertise to support a cause that's meaningful to them and wanting to gain valuable board experience as a stepping stone towards non-executive directorships.
On November 20th we are hosting a networking event with EMR that will bring together senior marketing and charity leaders who are looking to connect with marketers interested in filling their board positions. The event will include a panel discussion with contributions from Steve Walker, former CMO of Sony Mobile and Founder of Two-Sides, Celia Pronto, Chief Customer Officer at the Casual Dining Group and Trustee at Yes to Life, Mary McGrath, Chief Executive of FoodCycle and Catherine McClen, Founder of BuddyHub.
After the panel discussion there will be a networking session bringing together a wide range of causes and marketers interested in becoming trustee for people to explore who they might like to work with. And Anna, Chief Matchmaker of Pimp My Cause, will be on hand to support the matchmaking process both at the event and afterwards.
You don't need to attend the event to be matched up. If you are a marketer interested in taking on a charity trustee role or a cause leader looking for a board trustee with a marketing background, please get in touch with Anna by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org.
