Coffee for Cause is to ensure the continuity of conversations among development-focused professionals who move the responsibility and sustainability domain.
The event has been conceptualized keeping in mind the ‘value-addition moments’ – all of them clubbed together in one bouquet.

A little talk while exchanging business cards and shaking hands

Get Noticed

When you stand up to ask your question – and all eyes and ears are focused at you


The time when you are on stage and making a point


The relaxed talk that you have while sipping coffee or eating lunch


The time when you are engaged in listening to something that makes sense to you


When you feel it was worth being there


The Thought Leadership acknowledgement is CauseBecause saying ‘thank you’ to these extraordinary individuals for being who they are. Since Team CauseBecause has been privileged to meet, interact with, and exchange ideas with these individuals, it was a natural next step to honour and felicitate them.

While CSR has made a strategic and much-needed move from the drawing room to the boardroom, the individuals who evolved as knowledge leaders, innovators, thinkers and impact makers in the responsibility and sustainability domain have taken centre stage.

These Thought Leaders have been moving and inspiring people with innovative social ideas; turning these ideas into reality; and proving how belief, commitment and effort can bring about the desired change that each one of us wants to see at the grassroots, embracing communities across the country. These individuals are the Thought Leaders and have inspired a dedicated group of organizations, friends, followers and fans who vouch for their dedication.
