Over the past few years, I have been involved on a professional, project management and creative capacity in various projects.
Consulting and project management: corporate philanthropy projects
As a contracting consultant for Trialogue, I performed a number of roles, including strategy development for corporate charitable giving programmes (known as corporate social investment / CSI programmes in South Africa), and more recently performing evaluations on these programmes across South Africa. The latter involved travel, often to remote locations, to review social development projects, and provide recommendations for improving the outcomes of these (using a Logic Model based assessment tool). These projects were undertaken for listed companies such as Telkom Foundation, Santam, and parastatal Eskom Foundation, as well as smaller companies. I was a key project manager for the Telkom evaluation project.
