We’ve designed fully interactive and informative sessions built around our theme ‘Social Entrepreneurship for NGO’s’. Learn from Subject Matter Experts through our various Deep Dive Workshops focused on Social Media Marketing, Brand Storytelling, Grant Proposal Writing, and Finance. Then there is our main speaker’s address, an engaging presentation on the Road Map to Social Entrepreneurship that all NGO’s should be present for.


All NGO’s face issues, so why not learn from shared experiences and brainstorm solutions? There will be so much to learn this year as we delve into the approach of Social Entrepreneurship for NGO’s. The learning outcomes covered in the Deep Dive Workshops, can provide your NGO with the added value of fresh ideas and alternative approaches to current issues.

Be sure to take advantage of the opportunity to meet industry experts face to face. They may be able to provide some guidance or even a few words of inspiration.
