  2. 2. CORPORATE SOCIAL RESPONSIBILITY MANAGEMENT. SOME PROJECTS I MANAGED FROM 2003 - 2010 Corporate Social Responsibility is a process by which corporate bodies conduct business whilst acting in the interest of the society. From 2003 to 2010, as pioneer team member working closely with the Director of Marketing (2003-2005) and Director of Corporate Affairs and London team (2006-2010), I managed the CSR agenda of Guinness Cameroon S.A, a Diageo group specialised in fabricating and commercialising famous alcoholic beverage brands across the world. As PR Projects Coordinator in Marketing, then CSR & Communications Manager in Corporate Affairs, my job included Community Relations, Employee and External Stakeholders’ Engagement on various related PR activities like Responsible Drinking Awareness, which I will present separately. In this presentation, I will be showcasing part of my activities on the Guinness & Communities Agenda, that forms part of the company’s Corporate Social Responsibility. Guinness Cameroon officially launched the GUINNESS WATER OF LIFE PROJECT, during the “World Water Day” celebrations in 2002, whereby through the Diageo Foundation funding, engaged in financing water projects in 8 villages in the highly enclave Upper Bayang Mbo Wildlife Sanctuary in the South West Region of Cameroon. This project fell in line with Guinness Cameroun S.A and Diageo’s contributions towards conservation of the environment for which they operate and helping these communities to fight against water-bone diseases caused by scarcity of water. This kicked off in March 2002, with Wildlife Conservation Society as Technical Partner. An inauguration ceremony was organised at the end to celebrate with each community. GUINNESS & COMMUNITIES
