Intense Immersion – Amazing Results
Accra, Ghana: Dates to be announced
Public/private partnerships in development can have huge impacts on development, social and shareholder value. They offer huge potential, but too often the potential is not realized, or worse, ill-conceived partnerships destroy value.
This comprehensive 3-day program provides a comprehensive guide to public-private partnerships enabling understanding, application and action to produce results that create social and shareholder value.
Using lectures, videos, small group case studies and scenario role-playing the program blends theory, practice and real-life application, enabling participants to leave with a pragmatic and usable set of tools and frameworks for developing, implementing and managing productive partnerships in the real-world.
WHY THIS COURSE
Effective public-private development partnerships can drive organizational success. Yet many fail to start or fail to survive?
Natural Partnerships – Unnatural Partners. Business, NGOs and development agencies have natural partnership opportunities but organizational history and the often conflicting perspectives of internal and external stakeholders can make these partnerships hard to realize.
If you and your organization want to be more effective at negotiating and implementing multi-sector CSR, shared value and development partnerships this is a can’t miss program.
Using the SDGs as a framework and based on decades of successful multisector partnership development, this three-day hands-on Executive Certificate Program will leave you ready to create and implement partnerships that will help drive your organization’s success.
