Tim Shriver on Special Olympics and the Human Spirit

By Maureen Rabbitt

Dr Timothy P.Shriver visiting Special Olympics athletes in Ireland last year.

In an inspiring interview with Britain’s National Grid Connecting online magazine, Tim Shriver, Chairman of Special Olympics International, warns if business leaders today are not thinking about Corporate Social Opportunity in new and creative ways they are missing out, professionally and personally. He promised that Special Olympics “can open your eyes to a deeper sense of humanity”. National Grid is Britain’s largest utility company and became the first ever official partners of Special Olympics Great Britain in July 2007. You can read Tim’s thought provoking interview in full here.
