The Trialogue Business in Society Conference is an annual industry-leading event which brings together development stakeholders from the corporate, non-profit, government, academic and media sectors to share lessons and innovations for enhanced and lasting impact in development. One of the four key themes at this year’s conference – collaboration in education, presented in partnership with Old Mutual, will underscore the importance, address the barriers and provide practical tips and implementation tools for how corporate, government and the non-profit sector can work together to realise equitable access to quality education in South Africa.

Collaboration in education sessions will include insight from the Department of Basic Education, Old Mutual Foundation, DG Murray Trust, Stellenbosch University, JET Education Services, Reos Partners Southern Africa, the National Education Collaboration Trust and the Public Health Enhancement Fund, among others.

Other themes at the conference are innovative finance for development impact, presented in partnership with Absa, managing risk and reputation in development, presented in partnership with Sasol and building healthy relationships in development, presented in partnership with Vodacom.

The conference is a creative space in which stakeholders in development can come together to share challenges, lessons and innovations to improve large-scale and lasting impact in development. With the 2019 conference taking place less than a month before national elections, the keynote address by lifelong activist and former Concourt judge, Albie Sachs, intends to remind South Africans of the progressive Constitution upon which this democracy was built. An international keynote address by the executive director of the UN Global Compact Malaysia, Shahazar Yazid, will offer perspective on how South Africa is fairing in its response to the global Sustainable Development Goals.

In addition to 22 content session and insight from more than 55 expert contributors, delegates can also look forward to several networking opportunities, including registration sessions sponsored by Rand Water Foundation and a cocktail networking function on the first evening of the conference, sponsored by MTN Foundation.
