Trialogue presents masterclasses in the run-up to its annual Business in Society Conference

The Trialogue Business in Society Conference, which will take place at The Wanderers Club in Johannesburg on 16 and 17 April, is a dynamic event at which development stakeholders meet to share challenges, lessons and innovations to improve large-scale and lasting impact in development. In addition to the main conference, Trialogue and partners will present two interactive masterclasses.

These masterclasses are an opportunity for both corporate social investment (CSI) practitioners and non-profit organisations (NPO) to enhance their skills in monitoring and evaluation, or to learn more about shared value.

These masterclasses will take place on Monday, 15 April (the day before the Trialogue Business in Society Conference commences) at The Wanderers Club.

About the masterclasses

Monitoring and evaluation (M&E), presented in partnership with JET Education Services

Ideal for delegates with basic knowledge of monitoring and evaluation. The programme will be set at an intermediate level and is intended for:

  • CSI practitioners who require M&E feedback on project implementation and effectiveness or who may be involved in designing M&E indicators and processes
  • NPOs wishing to improve their M&E processes for internal improvement/learning and     reporting back to funders and stakeholders.

Shared value, presented in partnership with Louise Driver from the Red Cross Children’s Hospital Trust

This masterclass will have specific focus on how corporates and NPOs can engage in effective mutually beneficial shared value partnerships.

Suitable for delegates interested in exploring how the concept of shared value could be applied to improve strategic outcomes and sustainability of social programmes. The programme will be set at an intermediate level and is intended for:

  • CSI practitioners who seek to build shared value outcomes through partnerships with NPOs
  • NPOs wishing to identify shared value opportunities that can be used to secure longer term relationships with corporate funders.

Corporate delegates pay R3 000 ex VAT and NPO delegates pay R2 000 ex VAT.
