At the annual Trialogue “Business in Society” conference in May 2017, our Office Administrator, Sindiswa Zukani, won the prestigious Trialogue “Donors’ Den” bid - modelled on the acclaimed Dragons’ Den television series. The conference boasted 60 speakers and 380 delegates. Graca Machel was the keynote speaker.
Following a national call for applications, Hlumelelisa was selected as one of only three non-profit organisations (NPOs) from across South Africa to “pitch” a project to a panel of corporate donors. The session was chaired by Trialogue Founder and Managing Director, Nick Rockey, and judged by Chris Bornman (Eskom Development Foundation), Angie Maloka (MTN SA Foundation) and Mthobeli Tengimfene (Vodacom Foundation). Participants received detailed feedback, empowering them with expert advice on how to hone their fundraising skills. http://trialogue.co.za/trialogue-donors-den-2017/
