About my work:
I am responsible for the Nestlé Prize in Creating Shared Value.

Launched in 2009, the Nestlé Prize in Creating Shared Value seeks to encourage and reward innovative approaches to the problems of nutrition, water, and rural development.

The Prize is awarded in alternate years to an individual, a non-government organisation, a governmental organization, a research institute or a small enterprise, that has shown outstanding promise in improving access to, or management of, water; enhancing the lives of farmers and rural communities; or providing better nourishment to communities suffering from nutritional deficiencies.

The winning organisation or individual will benefit from an investment of up to CHF 500 000 (approx. USD 480 000) to bring his project to scale or replicate it to other communities.

Hello Barbara,

I recently read your feature as Member of the week and found it extremely interesting.  I come from that mixed business-development background you spoke of (from Engineers-Without-Borders Canada, and having just recently finished my MBA in the UK).  I am currently working for a very small consultancy in London who does some CSR / charity work, but mostly private sector stuff.  I would love to chat with you about corporate partnerships with NGOs and the right way to go about doing them.  It would be great to hear back from you.  Thanks very much,

 

Candice
