On Thursday, 1 December 2016. a number of ADESSA members and SchoolAdvisor members came together at the offices of Investec in Cape Town to explore collaboration opportunities. The event was sponsored by Investec.
After brief introductions about Investec, ADESSA and SchoodAdvisor the attendees, all seated around tables strung together to form one long table, had the opportunity to “speed date” the person sitting directly opposite. After 4 minutes, at the sound of a bell, all shifted clockwise two places to the left, to find a new partner.
All in attendance agreed that it was time well spent. New contacts were made and the potential for future partnerships is positive. A similar event is planned for Gauteng early in 2017.
Partnerships are important for running successeful projects in education. ADESSA and SchoolAdvisor have joined forces to enable the members of both organizations to find potential partners.
