…coherent, thoughtful, stimulating and insightful… state of the art! The network of participants from the public, private and civil society sectors was incredible, some of the leading experts in the field.
If only I would have had these great insights during budget crunch time, I'm sure I could have fared much better. Like always, novel perspectives for sustainability professionals. Thanks, Wayne.
pragmatic blend of theory and practice, very applicable to helping organizations meet real-world challenges.
… readily available to provide support to organizations like Amref that are seeking partnerships, and looking to bring about positive change in a collaborative and concrete way. Wayne and the CSR Training Institute helped us to identify and connect with potential partners and are always available. The training, the expertise, the network and the overall support are world-class.
The program enhanced the CSR knowledge and strategic skills of our Kosmos Energy Ghana team, and offered the participants a platform for networking with professionals from other organisations across Africa and Ghana.
Very much helpful Wayne; some of the tips and questions you gave will be an extremely helpful guide in the process of developing a CSR Strategy for my company
The CSR Program was excellent. A key aspect of my work is to encourage and support private sector development that contributes to Ghana’s overall socio-economic growth. The learning that I and my staff take away from attending this program will help us immensely with this responsibility. I highly recommend this program.
New and exciting insights into the theory and practice of CSR… great faculty and participants, very diversified. An excellent learning experience, very practical and useful. I’m very happy I was able to participate in it.
This session was a real success… huge amount of knowledge, practical information, case studies and great networking. Learning is great for my work, benefitting my company and the communities we work in
A brilliant programme…. I learned sooo much and feel energised and ready to take on my new responsibilities! I highly recommend it
thank you for putting together such a great program. I am very glad I participated. I’ve already ran sessions to train other students and NGO workers. The learning is very valuable for my organization
The CSR training program has already paid a huge dividend for my office. The learning and networking resulted in a half million health sector partnership between one of the USAID office in Cote D'Ivoire and a private company.
I was over-delighted with every aspect of the program!
As a United Nations official, I learnt a lot from the program and participants and would eagerly recommend this training to anyone wishing to enhance their knowledge and understanding of CSR across the value chain
Great programme, great faculty, excellent facilitation!
Transformed my way of thinking with regards to CSR
Great program! Great international faculty - great global examples of CSR in theory and practice - great and diverse participants
Truly enjoyable week; learned so many new perspectives on CSR
Stimulating and challenging course, well worth the investment
The contacts I made and the tools l learnt have been very fruitful, it has already resulted in an exciting partnership project for our operations in Côte d’Ivoire
Created a context for CSR Best Practice - not as Utopian but as adoptable and suitable
Extraordinary! The quality of all materials, the detail, the organization and the superb delivery - an extraordinary event!
Well coordinated, critical issues were addressed
… particularly useful …organizers and presenters delivered a program focused on various actors engaged in CSR: corporations, NGOs, government, and donors. I recommend this course to others in the office.
The program introduced strategic thinking to my approach to CSR, especially around partnerships, creating value for my company and local communities.
The program was just what we needed! It provided my team and I with great insights . …helping us to better integrate CSR throughout the organization and operation to create more value for our shareholders and our communities. I highly recommend the program.
The Exec course on CSR was an excellent experience for me and my team from Peru as it masterfully bridged the various theories, practices and results
This program brought a level of strategic thinking to our CSR initiatives that had been lacking.
Fresh appreciation of the impacts, issues…networking was more than great due to the international and diverse participants and I am very glad that I participated
A resounding recommendation for all levels of leaders.
Informative, interesting and inspiring

Incredible program and opportunity to learn, share and network! It's very rare to have all 3 under the same roof and for a whole a week!
The CSR Program gave me global perspective, practical tools, meaningful insights and a large network to draw on.
A good, strong focus on the interconnections of CSR and development.
Very instructive and inspiring
THE program for strengthening networks with individuals and institutions
Insightful, Informative, experience sharing, networks and exposure to new dimensions of CSR
The program was of immense benefit
Our company is just starting to develop it’s global CSR strategy. What was so valuable was the dialogue with the other participants which included a diverse range from business right through to NGOs from all parts of the world.
Great overview of essential documents and history of CSR development…integrated with multiple examples, practical workshops and discussions with CSR practitioners, sharing their background and experience.
The program put me alongside seasoned CSR professionals from around the world and a world-class faculty for a week of incredible learning. Because of this I was able to change career directions and am now doing exciting work in CSR helping community organizations and businesses to do stimulating things.
You cannot afford to miss this course if CSR is your passion and job responsibility… It broadens your CSR knowledge and perspective and gives you the unique opportunity of establishing a broader national and trans-national networking and collaboration base with other CSR practitioners and stakeholders.
Golden Star Resources sent three CSR leaders to the program in CSR in South Africa; they returned praising the program and invigorated with new ideas, and with communication and innovation much improved we continue to advance our CR programs.
… an excellent learning experience for me… The CSR program is a top of the range one: from the participants background (managers from mining companies, NGOs, governmental officers, financial institutions, etc) to the experts who delivered the program (from academics to private companies, to International organizations such IFC or UNDP).
The instructors managed to convey, in a succinct manner, the variety of practical problems likely to be faced by stakeholders in discharging their CSR obligations in the African business settings. It was also very useful to meet practitioners from different parts of Africa describing the challenges and rewards of their work. Unquestionably this course is excellent for both the neophytes and the veterans of the CSR World. WELL DONE!!
As a member of the Faculty Team for the CSR Program, it was a pleasure to work with such an impressive group of participants. Their talent and interest made my role a breeze, and participants responded with enthusiasm to the dynamic and interactive modules. This approach allowed participants to learn from each other, to expand their networks and strengthen their commitment to CSR.
… helped me reach a whole new level of understanding of Corporate Social Responsibility, and led to several networking opportunities. Many of the presenters led their talks through a seminar style, allowing participants to break out in teams to problem solve through real life examples, which was highly engaging. Learning continued outside of the classroom, following up with classmates and further developing relationships.
I participated in the program held last November in Accra and it was a great experience through and through. From the insights gained in its top rate seminars, to the great contacts made, good organization and friendly delivery of the event. I look forward to being back for the April 2014 conference.
Your program made a great impression on me so I decided to build on it! I’m doing a part-time MBA-CSR at Nottingham University

"…knowledgeable, eye-opening and truly inspiring!"
Relevant, current, insightful, informative
Useful, not only for CSR but for development projects in general. Too often designers worry about external stakeholders. If internal stakeholders can be engaged, chances of both success and sustainability are increased.
