The social economy is critical to a healthy, balanced global economy and never before has the work of nonprofit organizations been more visible and vital. The current era of connectivity has introduced new business models and new players, disrupting and flattening conventional approaches and creating far-reaching implications for global development and social enterprises. With pressure on traditional models of development, innovations are emerging and generating significant catalytic effects in the sector.

Boards and senior leaders of global nonprofit organizations now face growing pressure to create solutions with involvement from private and public sectors. Our Global Development & Social Enterprise (GDSE) consultants understand the complexities confronting your organization and we are committed to helping you find senior leaders who will have a long-term impact.
