The events hosted by Nation Builder are carefully crafted to challenge views, bring new insights on how to engage in social development, and to showcase remarkable people whose innovative social change practices give replicable examples for others to follow in effective community partnerships.
The 2019 event brought together 180 representatives of businesses from every industrial sector, committed to high-impact social development partnerships.
The In Good Company conference has enjoyed sponsorship partnerships with Atterbury Properties, Brand South Africa, Business Print, Growthpoint Properties, King Price Insurance, Oasis Water and Stone Communication Consulting.
Nation Builder hosts collaborative gatherings (Collabs) with social development industry leaders within corporates, NPOs and consultancies. Since 2014, Nation Builder has hosted 57 Collab panel sessions in 3 provinces involving more than 190 people representing over 130 businesses, consultancies and NPOs invested in sharing knowledge and best-practice, brainstorming, learning and tackling social issues together. A further 30 Collabs are planned for 2019.
Through these sessions, Nation Builder has extracted numerous impactful best-practice case studies of solutions and approaches that South Africans are implementing to address some of the social challenges the country faces. These are shared across both the profit-making, the not-for-profit and private sectors.
Launched in 2015, Nation Builder’s Business X-Change serves privately-owned businesses with less established social investment practices. In their first year, big picture topics, from company social purpose through to broad-based empowerment initiatives, were covered.
Due to the increasing interest in broader social issues affecting the social development space, Nation Builder hosts webinars to equip businesses to be more strategic in their social investment efforts. Four thought-leadership webinars were addressed in 2018 by Kerryn Krige (International Labour Organization), Professor Jonathan Jansen (University of Stellenbosch), Chris Venter (AFGRI) and Temba Nolutshungu (Free Market Foundation).
The events hosted by Nation Builder are carefully crafted to encourage collaboration and co-creation , challenge views, bring new insights on how to engage in social development, and to showcase remarkable people and organisations who are modelling effective and innovative ways of impacting South Africa.
