The Marketer article on The NSMC Behaviour Change and CSR Conference

Wednesday, May 2, 2012 - 22:57

'The Marketer', the magazine for Chartered Institute of Marketing members, published an article earlier this week on The NSMC's recent Behaviour Change and Corporate Social Responsibility Conference. 

The article used case studies from the conference to look at the increasing number of commercial organisations who use social marketing as part of their corporate social responsibilty programmes.
