Two Public Relations experts, Dr. Wole Adamolekun and Prof. Rotimi Olatunji have collaboratively launched a transformational book, entitled “Social Responsibility and Sustainable Development”.
The book was formally launched at the Metropolitan Club Lagos, on Wednesday, 29th of November, 2023.
The event, characterised by insightful discussions with the authors, provided attendees with a unique opportunity to delve into the inspiration behind their collaboration and the key themes explored in the masterpiece.
Adamolekun addressed the complex economic, social, and environmental expectations of stakeholders in the context of Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) and sustainable development.
Also speaking, co-author, Olatunji, called for a collective commitment to social responsibility for the betterment of the economy.
He challenged the notion that substantial financial resources are a prerequisite for social responsibility, asserting that organizations can integrate it into their expenditures, reducing tax burdens.
“In the pages of ‘Social Responsibility and Sustainable Development,’ we strive to ignite a collective spark for positive change—a call to action for every reader to play a role in shaping a sustainable future,” he said.
Adamolekun and Olatunji, who are both recognised sustainable development specialists, have given a wealth of expertise and a fresh perspective to the subject, making their collaboration a must-read for everyone interested in the impact of social responsibility and sustainable development.
Distinguished personalities at the event included Mr. Lanre Bajulaiye, a council member of the Nigeria Institute of Public Relations (NIPR); Chief Yomi Badejo-Okusanya, the lead partner at CMC Connect LLP and the former president of the Africa Public Relations Association (APRA), Mrs. Thelma Okoh, another NIPR council member; Ken Egbas, the founder of the SERAs awards/TruCSR, and Mr. Olukayode Ogunleye, a representative from Shell Plc. These renowned individuals contributed significantly to the event by sharing their ideas and insights from their various disciplines and industries.
