Share your knowledge and experience with others

Helping other businesses to grow and succeed is a very worthy community activity. You can offer to share your experiences at a business gathering or even a presentation at a school. It is surprising how many of these organizations struggle to find interesting people to share their knowledge and experiences.

Take on a work experience student in your office. Give them the opportunity to see if they like the industry you are in. Think back to when you did something similar and how you found it benefited you. But don’t wait for the schools to contact you, give them a call yourself and let them know that you are interested in taking on work experience students.

Coach a sporting team. There are never enough parents to get behind local sporting teams. Introduce what you have learned about leadership and team spirit to a group of kids wanting to play sport.

Run a free seminar about something that you know about – maybe running your own business. If you have managed to survive for a while you are suitably qualified to share your views with others.

Whatever interest grabs you, being prepared to share your knowledge and experience is a good way to become a better corporate citizen.

WHAT CAN YOU DO TODAY? Make up a list of ways that you can share your knowledge and experience with other people in your local community. Then get on the telephone and turn the list into reality.

    Hi Andrew,
    There is a saying “Give back to the industry what the industry gave”
