Making CSI Matter Conference 2012


Trialogue's mission is to ensure that the annual Making CSI Matter conference provides delegates with the new and inspired thinking, ultimately leading to improved practice and effectiveness of Corporate Social Investment (CSI).

CSI is facing massive challenges with only limited resources and yet must deal with high expectations of those hoping to benefit from contributions made. It is therefore essential that corporates, government and civil society convene to explore what is working, what is not, and how we can work together to ensure that every precious rand spent by companies on development is used to good effect.

The constantly evolving context of funding patterns, legislations, social issues and development innovation makes it essential that CSI practitioners convene regularly – otherwise, our responses will not be relevant. Making CSI Matter is the largest gathering of individuals and organisations engaged in corporate social investment in South Africa, with more than 350 delegates attending annually.

The fifth annual Making CSI Matter conference is taking place from 22-23 May 2012 in Johannesburg.


  • Corporate and government delegates: R5 950 for the two days;
  • NGOs (discounted rate): R2 950 for the two days.

Conference speakers:

  • Mary Metcalfe, Development Bank of Southern Africa;
  • Roger Matlock, GM Foundation;
  • Nic Dawes, Editor-In-Chief, Mail & Guardian;
  • Louise van Rhyn, Symphonia;
  • Nomsa Masuku, Standard Bank;
  • Bridgit Evans, GreaterGood South Africa.

Well-known radio personality and CEO of Dreamfields, John Perlman, will facilitate the plenary panel debates.
