I Jim ,happy for your thought.Africa Need Partnership not aid please this one issue ur administration should look at. The wars in Africa have western influence and those in the inner cycle shaping the future of the international community know about this ,so who are they deceiving?..people can have food and stay in peace when their soul is not at rest.Issue of international development and peace building need a new refine approach, probably challenging religion authority to take frontline role should be welcome

Hi Jim,

Seems like a while since anyone left a comment. I am new to this community, but saw your profile and thought I'd send you a link to a new initiative designed to connect busisness and NGOs in a way that maximises the outcomes for both parties. The initiative is called Leadership Journey. I'd love to get your feedback. see www.leadershipjourney.com

Hey Jim,

Thanks for the comment. What was the purpose of the trips your executives were going on? What were the desired outcomes being sought. I'd be fascinated to find out. Andrew

Global Partnerships Week is going strong.! Highlights include:

Partnership Practitioners Forum was an exciting event. Hundreds of practitioners from the public, private and civil society descended on the Department of State to discuss best practices in building and managing partnerships. Great collaboration with #USAID, #ConcordiaSummit and the #UNFoundation made for a great event.

The Collabotaye Up Academy (picture attached) was a deep dive into building partnerships. Well thought out and executed - I learned a lot!

Business Fights Pocerty (#fightspoverty) held a great discusiion on small businesses and partnerships. Log in to see that conversation!

Tomorrow has a discussion on food security and partnerships at #CSIS followed by a discussion on government related foundations at the Council on Foundations.

Keep up with all the events at: www.p3.co and at #GPW2015.
