CSR Presentation (BBFI) [Presentation Thursdays] June 17, 2010

Posted by Brian L. Belen in Presentations, The Daily Grind.

Lately, I’ve had to do talks about corporate social responsibility (CSR) on behalf of the Bato Balani Foundation (BBFI). Here’s the presentation I put together for this purpose:

The idea was to get the audience’s attention with a much more visual presentation, and talk about CSR using what BBFI does by way of example. Overall, I think it’s a better way for people to get to know the Foundation than, say, a straightforward corporate presentation, even if this meant I ended up reusing some photos for this slide deck.

Some notes:

  • Slides 2-7 make the case that perspectives on CSR have changed, using Milton Friedman’s (disputed) quote from Capitalism and Freedom as a jumping off point. In the interest of fair disclosure, I found the image of Friedman using Google image search (apparently, many versions have made the rounds on the internet). Obviously, the design on a couple of these slides have been repurposed from my dissertation proposal presentation.
  • Slides 10-13: BBFI was founded in 1991 and was named after Bato Balani for Science and Technology, the bestselling high school science magazine published by Diwa Learning Systems. Having said that, BBFI is actually the corporate foundation of a family of corporations, of which Diwa is part.
  • Slide 20: Collaterals for BBFI’s The Many Faces of the Teacher advocacy. I actually prepared a presentation for this that was never used. But that’s another story.
  • Slides 27-30: A tree planting project of Diwa, arising from the awareness that the company uses up a lot of paper as a publisher of printed material.
  • Slides 31-37: Following typhoon Ondoy (a.k.a. Ketsana), our balikbayan box forwarding company AFreight got involved in the relief efforts of the Filipino community in Hong Kong and Singapore. In Hong Kong, AFreight shipped relief goods to the Philippines on behalf of the Bayanihan Trust at no cost. Meanwhile, in Singapore, AFreight was designated a center by the Philippine Ambassador, and also shipped donations to DSWD and ABS-CBN Sagip Kapamilya at no cost. In each case, I believe that this amounted to one container of relief goods.
  • Slides 39-43: Here’s a story about months after the typhoon. Realizing that for many of its client schools teachers still hadn’t received enough relief goods, Diwa and BBFI put together bags of rice and canned goods to be distributed to teachers. These were delivered using our distribution network, and in the end made it to the hands of 1,125 teachers from 61 schools (many of whom were so happy that they made it a point to pose for pictures with the bags!)
  • Slide 44: BBFI will celebrate its 20th year anniversary in 2011. My how time flies!

[About Presentation Thursdays: Every now and then, on a Thursday, I post a presentation from my archives and include some accompanying commentary not just about the content but also my thoughts on designing it. The presentations can also be viewed and downloaded from my Slideshare page]
