how do we know how good we are as indvidual practitioners?

ok - maybe a bit of an abstract question, but how do we as support providers, advisors and consultants assure ourselves and others as to our value, our quality, that the types of approach we take are appropriate to their needs and culture, and so on.

The easy answer is to cite some accreditaton or testimonial from previous clients, but I have an idea that we could go beyond that and start to report on the impacts of our professional practices to assure customers and clients that…

A ‘Grandchildren Standard’ an article on CSR and Sustainability by Warren Levy

I recently read one of the best articles I have ever read on sustainability by Warren Levy the President of Compelling Meetings.

Scientific Costumes, Visions, Worldviews and Mindsets for Revealing Modernity in Africa

Africa is perhaps the most culturally imaginative and creative region in the world. It is extremely diversified, rich in talents and ingenuity with unlimited resources and potential. It has colonized the planet and it enriches humanity through inimitable arts. Yet, one African out of two lives in dismal human conditions.
