Sophia Muñoz, Business Development Officer at Core Value Concepts
“I participated in the program held last November in Accra and it was a great experience through and through.

Adam McEniry, Director Corporate Social Responsibility at Gran Tierra Energy
Useful, not only for CSR but for development projects in general. Too often designers worry about the external stakeholders, regarding the internal ones as part of the problem. If internal stakeholders can be engaged, chances of both success and sustainability are increased.
