Schick provides tips to keep it Mo-fessional
TORONTO, Nov. 16, 2011 /CNW/ - Corporate Canada is in growth mode, as
thousands of Mo Bros donate their face to raise funds and awareness for
Movember. But for many there is MOre to it than meets the eye as
Movember has become the cornerstone of activities to build office
unity, connect with colleagues and bring organizations closer together.
"We continue to hear stories about an entire office rallying around a
team or individual and putting men's health on the agenda." said
Meredith Bongers, Movember Canada "The business sector, from coast to
coast, has been a huge part of the success of Movember in Canada.
Whether that is through dollar matching, or raising critical awareness
corporate teams from companies like Schick, CIBC, Pepsi, Molson, KPMG
are truly championing the Mo."

Movember. While countries compete against other countries to see who

"Raising money for Movember started out at our organization organically
in 2008, and has now expanded to more than 15 offices around the
country. Not only do we get the opportunity to raise awareness of men's
health, it is a great way to build morale and get to know team members
that we don't usually connect with," David Oldham, Partner at KPMG.
"Movember is a fun way to come together as a team and compete against
other peers and former colleagues in the accounting industry."
No matter what sector of business, Schick has the tips and tools to help
you keep looking spiffy on the job and impress your boss in all your
'stached glory. Follow these tips to ensure you're keeping it

- the Mo makes the man, and not everyone can handle a handle-bar - but
the least they can do is support the cause
Put the fun in fundraising. Make a statement and make news around the water cooler. If you catch
people discussing your Salvador Dali or Fu Man Chu, use this as an
opportunity to educate your colleagues and clients on Movember. Though
you take your work seriously, show them you don't take yourself too
Take a Schick Day. Not all Mo's are created equal or grow at the same speeds. You may
want to schedule Schick days (Mo related sick days) to avoid an
unwanted preview and take the extra time to double groom your cookie
duster. Other alternatives include leveraging conference calls and
Know the tricks of the trade. Allow people to fully appreciate the beauty of what you cultivate
above your lip by using a Schick Hydro® razor to keep the rest of your
face smooth. Avoid Sasquatch references from your friends, clients and
co-workers by taking care of your growth. Daily maintenance is
necessary to achieve the desired look
It's not a hostile takeover. You may not look like a young Burt Reynolds, but it's too late to turn
back now. Know that you are doing it for a good cause and wear your Mo
with confidence because you only have to wear it until December 1st
