Cone Communications to Headline 2017 BCIVIC Summit

The 2017 B:CIVIC Summit is our largest program of the year and is designed to cultivate more effective social impact champions, leaders, and practitioners, and motivate people to take action to make positive change within their companies and the community.  Created to serve as a catalyst for building capacity in the community with people who know that for-profit business is a powerful force for social change, we are inviting 150-250 of the best and brightest minds together to elevate shared knowledge, best practices, national trends, local recognition – and thought leadership throughout the community. It will be a convergence of national speakers, business leaders, business owners and professionals in CSR, HR, marketing and more. We’ll explore the evolving expectations of what it means to be a responsible business and the crucial role that corporate social responsibility plays in building strong businesses and vibrant communities. The half-day event will be relevant for large and small businesses across many industries and will be held in metro Denver at the National WesternCenter.

Our 2017 B:CIVIC Summit builds on our inaugural event held in 2016: “Sparking Collaboration and Igniting Impact,” which began with a welcome from Governor Hickenlooper who proclaimed it to be B:CIVIC Day throughout Colorado.  This year’s program will feature a luncheon keynote speaker followed by a series of panels, presenters, and workshops, as well as a closing reception.

National CSR Agency Cone Communications’ Whitney Dailey to Keynote 2017 B:CIVIC Summit

We are proud to announce Whitney Dailey, Director of Marketing/Research & Insights at Cone Communications as the B:CIVIC Summit’s keynote luncheon speaker, who will tap into the agency’s three-decade leadership in the space to give an insider’s look at this complex landscape.  She guides agency brand strategy, marketing and thought leadership. With a strong background in CSR, sustainability and social impact issues and deep understanding of Cone’s mission and culture, Whitney positions Cone for growth while furthering its three-decade legacy as a pioneer in corporate social responsibility (CSR) communications.

For more than six years, Whitney has led the development and distribution of Cone’s industry-leading and award-winning research studies, such as the 2017 Cone Communications CSR Study, 2016 Cone Communications Millennial Employee Engagement Study and the 2015 Cone Communications/Ebiquity Global CSR Study. Through the creation of three global studies surveying 10,000 individuals in 10 countries globally, Whitney has a deep understanding of the cultural and geographic nuances of consumer demands for CSR across the world – and has fostered an extensive network of global experts to tap for additional insights.

Whitney has her finger on the pulse of all that’s trending within the world of CSR and can provide a virtual lineup of the best and most innovative CSR campaigns in the marketplace. The output of this is original and thought-provoking POVs in industry publications and content for Cone’s weekly “Prove Your Purpose” newsletter and blog as well as a number of industry speaking engagements.
