Singapore, 7 October 2016 – Global innovation consultancy, Consulus, headquartered in Singapore, has officially announced its partnership with Siziwan Educational Foundation from Kaohsiung to promote World Company Day (WCD) in Taiwan today.
A memorandum of understanding (MOU) was signed between Consulus and Siziwan Educational Foundation on October 7, at Raffles Education Square, in Singapore. Mr Lawrence Chong, Chief Executive Officer of Consulus, and Professor Kao Ming-rea, President of Siziwan Education Foundation, represented both organisations.
In August 15, 2013, Consulus launched the WCD initiative to inspire companies to shape the world creatively into a better place through daily work. Until now, more than 200 signatories from 11 countries including the United States, Belgium, Japan, Hong Kong, Singapore, etc., have joined this global movement.
“Siziwan Educational Foundation with their passion of working in education and social enterprises is really an ideal partner for World Company Day in Taiwan. Many Taiwanese companies are already making a difference to society through business. We look forward to telling their stories and adding their membership to the more than 200 companies who are now part of this movement,” Chong said.
Following this partnership, Consulus will collaborate with Siziwan Educational Foundation to introduce the principles of WCD to Taiwanese companies. This will create opportunities for Taiwanese brands to join a global network and share experiences on how to bring about sustainable good and make a difference.
“Through promoting Consulus World Company Day in Taiwan, we hope to increase the level of involvement and networking effect contributed by the private sector. We have been working closely with public and nonprofit sectors to promote social entrepreneurship. It is time to raise awareness of impact that can be created by enterprises in order to shape a better world all together,” Prof. Kao, said.
