What does Indaba mean ?

This Zulu word describes meetings between community leaders to get to know each other and move forward together, without prejudices or protocol barriers. An Indaba creates a space of real conversation between the parties, where everyone has a voice and where there is an attempt to find a common mind. Inspired by this African philosophy, we approach every mission and task with interest and determination, using our innovative 3EC approach©: Expertise, Experience, Enthusiasm and Creativity, with full respect for our clients, their needs and their input, providing integrity and confidentiality throughout the collaborative consulting process.

To help our clients achieve their goals and increase their positive impact in the society, we explore various options with them, in order to engage and interact in new ways towards creative solutions.
