Partnership Broker, Victoria Thom, will lead a practical and interactive session based on global emergent practice in multi-stakeholder partnering for impact.

The case for partnering is clear, and progressive organisations have made public commitments to collaborate to achieve the SDGs. However, many are not set up to realise the potential value of effective partnering.

This session will explore dimensions of individual and organisational capacity to mobilise and scale up strategic and transformative partnerships.
