UnLtd appoints Perth board and launches virtual volunteering

The industry’s social purpose organisation, UnLtd, has launched its first board of directors for its WA outpost, following the January appointment of Carol Morris as general manager.

UnLtd has also announced a nationwide virtual volunteering initiative, Good Deeds, which will match industry volunteers with marketing projects to help UnLtd’s charity partners.

UnLtd has appointed a Perth-based board

The Perth-based board will include SBS WA sales manager Chris Eyres, Initiative managing director Luke O’Sullivan, Nine Radio director of sales Marianne Stelmach, News Corp group sales director Marissa McNish and Meerkats chief innovation officer Martin Beecroft.

The board’s objective is to help unite and activate the Perth community in delivering high-value opportunities for local charities helping children and young people at risk.

Stelmach said the decision to join the board was influenced by the work done by UnLtd in other states.

“I was in awe of the results that UnLtd has generated in our industry on the east coast, so the opportunity to help unite us further locally and leverage our skills and talents for good was such a unique opportunity. We are a generous bunch but there is definitely more potential that we can tap into,” said Stelmach.

Sullivan said the board will give UnLtd better leverage to help charities in WA.

“I am truly excited to help extend the meaningful work UnLtd enables to support worthy charities and initiatives in WA. We have an incredibly talented and united local industry here in WA and mobilising their talents in areas that need support is a huge opportunity I am passionate to help support – as I know many others are as well,” said Sullivan.

The Good Deeds project, which is currently looking for a variety of skills ranging from video editing and graphic design to event and marketing strategy, is aimed at helping UnLtd’s partners continue to provide help, even during the coronavirus (COVID-19) restrictions.

Morris said: “We’ve all been impacted by the lock-down but we’ve been overwhelmed by how many people have reached out to us, despite their own challenges, wanting to help others. With most of us working remotely and many with reduced hours, we wanted to find a way to use our industry’s talent for good whilst helping our charities in this critical time. The Good Deeds project matches the talent to the need through quick projects that can all be done remotely.
