Developing Partnerships and Collaborations

Senior leaders event

About

streetfootballworld are a global not-for-profit organisation that links relevant actors in the field of development through football. A key part of streetfootballworld’s mandate is to create collaboration and partnerships across sectors, countries and organisations, as a route to delivering greater social change.

Objective

Impact worked with streetfootballworld and Sony to create an event for senior leaders from a cross section of organisations who work on development through sport initiatives.

The key challenges for the event were to build the personal, institutional and strategic relationships that would allow effective collaboration and also to generate clear projects for bi and multi-lateral working.

Solution

Over two days Impact facilitators led a programme that used a mixture of structured dialogue, powerful shared experiences, informal networking, outdoor encounters and business facilitation to enable and support decision making and dialogue.

Result

The offsite event led to the creation of ‘The Briery Coalition’, which acts to drive active collaboration within the sector. The coalition are now working on a number of shared projects covering such issues as creating best practice monitoring and evaluation, effective corporate engagements and exerting a policy level influence.
