SITE Southern California Young Leaders worked alongside the Beauty Bus Foundation this week to help pack 600 gift bags for chronically or terminally ill men, women, and children.

The Incentive for Excellence
Being in Business Development, I am consistently pushing myself and my team to come up with solid event management systems and innovative ideas to integrate technology into our everyday lives. One of our Core Values is Efficient Excellence and it’s important to us to stay on top of what’s going on in the world of technology. We consistently find websites and blogs, great smartphone apps, new ways to use social media, and systems that can streamline our processes.
So, based on my research and that of others, here are a few links that may just make your life a bit easier...
CSR is one of the hottest words in the event industry over the past few years and we are certainly taking note. Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) is becoming more and more recognized as a permanent slot in your meeting itinerary and rightly so.

- Connection and knowledge of the local area and the people that live there
- Great PR! It looks good on paper (and websites), folks. More and more clients are looking to work with companies who donate their time or resources to a good cause
- Provides a way for your employees to get to know each other, work together, and complete a project that they feel really good about
