(3BL Media) Chicago, IL - May 30, 2012 - The Cause Marketing Forum (CMF), a conference for creators of marketing programs that do well by doing good held on May 30th, gave attendees advance copies of Good Works! Marketing and Corporate Initiatives that Build a Better World…and the Bottom Line. The widely anticipated book, coauthored by CMF president David Hessekiel, Dr. Philip Kotler and Nancy Lee, is published by John Wiley & Sons, and will officially debut on June 5, 2012 retailing for $27.95.

“’Good Works!’ combines the best of real world experience drawn from dozens of case examples and academic analysis,” noted Hessekiel, who founded Cause Marketing Forum ten years ago to help business and nonprofit executives succeed together. “Data in the book is proof that companies can improve their bottom line while doing good in communities across the world.”

“Cause marketing isn’t another marketing fad,” stated Dr. Philip Kotler, professor of International Marketing at Northwestern University’s Kellogg School of Management. “Speaking with business leaders around the world, I find that they increasingly recognize the importance and efficacy of investing in marketing and corporate initiatives that support social and environmental issues.”

“Some of the world’s best marketing minds shared the stories behind their award-winning campaigns with us to illustrate ‘Good Works,’” said Nancy Lee, president of Social Marketing Services Inc. and adjunct professor at the University of Washington. “For anyone looking for empirical data and inspiration on companies promoting positive change, ‘Good Works!’ offers plenty of both.”

Good Works! provides expert advice and case studies of strategic cause marketing initiatives that have made a positive impact on society. It is the perfect business book for those practicing marketing and social responsibility, and includes examples form leading companies and organizations, including Starbuck’s, Target, Johnson & Johnson, Chipotle Mexican Grill, Marks & Spencer, the March of Dimes, Reading is Fundamental, UNICEF and many others.
