Apparently, the United Nations’ Sustainable Development Goals have alerted more actors to the fact that cross-sector partnership collaboration is a promising route to pursue.
Hence, we have been very busy working in Denmark for among others the Danish Broadcasting Corporation, The Danish Ministry of Foreign Affairs, Copenhagen Municipality – assisting these clients in their efforts to design, refine and role out comprehensive partnership strategies.
Similarly, KJAER ADVICE has worked in the US organizing training for public sector officials.
Or in Southern Africa, assisting the design of a comprehensive public-private partnership program.

 

This year is coming to an end – lots of interesting work is waiting to be unfolded in the coming year.

 

Thank you to all clients and partners!

KJAER ADVICE leads workshop to design pilot projects in Colombia and Kenya.
Grow Film Alliance (GFA) supports initiatives that promote independent film making, advance audience building and engage communities. It is the belief that all communities and countries can enhance tolerance and involvement in societal matters when watching, reflecting and discussing films about their own culture, in their own languages. Across the world individuals and groups are producing films that have the potential to advance democracy and engage and inform communities. However, in underdeveloped film cultures many films never reach their prospective national audience.

 

GFA is formed in 2015. Moving into the implementation phase, the Alliance will support pilot project development in Colombia and Kenya.

Oxford, United Kingdom

Cross-sector partnerships have never been higher up both the international development agenda and the business sustainability agenda. In many ways, 2015 marks a turning point in the field: the case for collaboration has been made and almost universally accepted. The priority now is on making partnerships happen at a scale, quality and with an impact that will dwarf the current efforts. That is the focus of a series of programmes being taught at the Oxford-based The Partnering Initiative (TPI), where Louise Kjaer will be guest lecturing on how to build effective partnerships. Louise Kjaer is an Associate at TPI (www.thepartneringinitaitive.com)

Copenhagen, Denmark

Likewise, Louise will be guest lecturing at the Copenhagen Business School, Department of Business and Politics, at the programme ‘Leadership in public-private partnerships’. Focus will beon strategic partnership and how to maximize impact through effective partnership management.
