Born in Belfast, Ireland amidst the period known as “The Troubles,” Rick Grehan was always passionate about sticking up for what’s right. As he grew older and pursued a career in advertising, he was forced to confront a moral-dilemma between a life of activism and a life in the boardroom.
In his GLOBIS Unlimited course, Grehan shares his experiences navigating these ethical minefields as well as how he managed to incorporate corporate social responsibility into his work, ultimately leading me to a deeper understanding of the challenges faced by NGOs and activists looking to secure funding.
Below is an excerpt of his insights on the importance of balancing your personal morals with your professional career.
Grehan: I’m from Belfast, Northern Ireland, and I was born in 1969, and that just happened to be the beginning of the Irish troubles. I grew up in a kind of war zone, and so a lot of political activism was happening between the UK and Ireland. My aunt won a Nobel Peace Prize and my father was one of the heads of the civil rights movement, so growing up I was a baby activist. I was carrying placards before I could read them and [always] wanted peace and political stability.
After all of that, I studied graphic design and started working in advertising in London. I was working in corporate identity for one year. And then I moved to South Africa to work in big advertising agencies. It was there that I had experienced a bit of an existential crisis.
I was a peace activist and political activist in my private time, but at work I was collaborating with some of the same brands that I was boycotting. I was working with one of the biggest coffee companies in the world. But in my personal life I was boycotting them because of the pressure they were putting on the Ethiopian government.
And at the same time, in my daytime job, I was helping [the coffee company] with their branding. I thought this was kind of shouganai (unable to be changed). You have your daytime work and that’s how you make a living. And then in your personal life you can make some difference. Eventually it got to be too much, and I quit advertising.
Eventually I had my own advertising agency, I sold it, and then I bought a 4×4, and I drove from Cape Town to Cairo.
I was raising money for an AIDS orphanage NGO at the time. And this was my first kind of experience of working for a good cause. I knew that I was good at selling things, so I thought that this would be easy.
But I was shocked because as soon as I went out and started speaking to my old clients and trying to get sponsorship, they just kind of backed off and weren’t interested and kind of looked down at me a little bit, like I was kind of begging for money.
So I was very perplexed by this and the fact that people people find it difficult to give to charity. I finally understood why NGOs find it very difficult to survive.
