On September 19th, SISN was delighted to host a live webinar with guest speaker Ms Helga van Kampen from the Partnership Brokers Association (PBA), a non-profit organization dedicated to developing professional competencies for those managing the partnering process. During her presentation entitled “How to Build Effective Cross-sector Partnerships”, Helga shared her knowledge and experience through a engaging discussion on partnering and principles and how these can be applied to implementation research.

At the end of this presentation attendees had:

  • an understanding of some partnering frameworks and the concept of ‘partnership brokering’
  • gained insights from lessons learned by SISN and 3ie’s multi stakeholders Implementation Science Initiative in Uganda and Kenya
  • gained insights on how partnership brokering can strengthen the knowledge brokers role.

Following the 40 minute presentation, attendees posed their questions in a Q&A, moderated by SISN’s Secretary/Treasurer, Dr Eva Monterrosa.

We are pleased to share a FREE recording with you, as well as a pdf copy of the slides.
