Welcome to Partnering with Purpose. We want to help you making partnerships more purposeful. We do this by applying worldwide partnership experience to your particular situation.

Why Partnering with Purpose?

Today’s global challenges, as formulated in the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), require collaboration between organisations with different backgrounds, cultures, objectives and skill-sets.
Despite good intentions, many collaborations do not work as well as one had hoped. I have witnessed and experienced this quite often during my career. With Partnering with Purpose we want to provide advice, in-company training, lectures, mentoring/coaching of individuals and interim-management of or support to organisations and collaborations to drive scale and quality of collaboration required to deliver on the SDGs.

We work together with The Partnering Initiative, one of the first international organisations dedicated solely to supporting the global shift to working in partnership over the past two decades.
