Community Workers Training and Support Forum
CWTAS Annual Forum
Successful businesses thrive in healthy communities, according to visiting consultant Nick Jones, who will be in Nelson tomorrow to speak at the annual Community Workers Training and Support forum.
Nick is the founder and director of Nick Jones and Associates, a company that works with businesses and community groups to help them build up partnerships that make a difference to those that need it with spinoffs into the wider community.
³We want businesses to think about how they can support the non-profit sector, because in the longer term this leads to happier staff, a healthier community and a more vibrant economy,² he says.
Nick says the non-profit sector can offer businesses a way to understand and help out with social issues, citing the BNZ¹s support for Preventing Violence in the Home as an example: ³They have helped us raise money and knowledge flows back to them and their staff on dealing with the family violence issue.²
Nick used to be Executive Director of Nielsen Media Research NZ and AGB Nielsen Media, he was awarded the Communication Agencies Assoc. of NZ¹s Media Personality of the Year and has received the Robin Hood Foundation Hero award.
