Exploring the opportunities and limitations of remote partnering

Remote Partnering – a new website (remotepartnering.org) has been launched to bring attention to this important and neglected topic. PBA has initiated this project in partnership with Action Against Hunger, British Red Cross, PAX for Peace and the Partnerships Resource Centre. The first phase involved a number of desk-top and action research activities and has resulted in a new publication: ‘The Current Status of Remote Partnering’.

If you are interested in sharing your experience, giving feedback on the publication or getting involved – either as an individual or on behalf of an organisation –  in this project let us know via info@partnershipbrokers.org.

Shifting the Power through partnering

PBA Director, Ros Tennyson, gave a 5 minute ‘lightening talk’ in the final session of the Global Summit on Community Philanthropy (#ShiftThePower, December 2nd, Johannesburg) – she said that partnering would be the key to ‘shifting the power’ IF partnerships were truly transformational in their intent and process management. Download the PBA paper Shifting The Power, and Ros Tennyson’s presentation.
