Introducing Coffee Talk Season 13

Coffee Talk Season 13 focuses on “The Business of Development”. As the lines between business and development become blurred, corporations are increasingly becoming key players on the development space. Once seen as organisations that were happy just to carry the donor tag, many now have significant development activities. Some of the bigger ones are now influencing the global development agenda, infusing business principles into was largely driven by charity. With SDGs giving them a bigger development role, the age of corporate led development is here! Furthermore, many donors now provide large amounts of funds to support development initiatives from the corporate. Corporations now play multiple roles such as donor, partner and development agent. Some have become friendly competition by attracting funds from the donors, that were formerly the domain of Civil Society Organisations (CSOs) and implementing activities themselves. Season 13 will focus on the corporate sector and its role and activities in development. It will explore the impact that this has on CSOs and what it means for them. Key will be the lessons that CSOs can learn from the corporate sector in strengthening its own development and fundraising initiatives. There will be 9 coffee talks with leading businesses involved in development.
