1. We have welcomed 4 new team members to our Maanch business team over the past months: 

2. Maanch Response Webinar ‘Compassion and Collaboration in the Time of Crisis’ – Over the last month Sianne Haldane, has spoken with several key stakeholders in our community during our Wednesday webinar sessions with ‘collaboration’ as the core theme. These insightful conversations have ranged from:

  • 13 May 2020 – A focus on Africa with Amma Gyampo, African ecosystem builder and Jean De Villiers, Philanthropy Advisor (and former springbok). During this webinar we discussed African nations incredible response to Covid from a public health perspective. In addition, the many innovations coming from Africa during this time, such as a cost effective Covid-19 test.
  • 18 May 2020 – Collaboration in the UK charity sector with David Stead of Charities Aid Foundation (CAF) & Max Rutherford, Head of Policy at Associations of Charitable Foundations (ACF). During this webinar we highlighted ‘collaboration’ as an essential component in the philanthropic sector, as we’re witnessing more foundations coming together to explore co-funding in thematic areas to maximise impact and also businesses coming together to support the sector.
  • 27 May 2020 – Exploring the future of business with Thomas Klafke, Head of Insight at Business of Purpose. While purposeful businesses were always a trend to watch, consumers have long wanted more from the brands they purchase and use. This webinar focused on the convergence of this idea as well as climate emergency, and Covid elevating the expectations for businesses to be purpose lead.
  • 3 June 2020 – Author of ‘Decade of Wealth’ report, Maya Imberg, Senior Director of Thought Leadership and Analytics at Wealth X. Our conversation focused on the last decade which has seen more wealth created than ever before. The next generation are also more conscious consumers and with the Covid crisis highlighting bigger cracks and gaps in society – there is more of an expectation on those with wealth to take a more conscious and active role in giving back. 

The powerful message running through all of these conversations has been that we need to collaborate, uniting to get through the current crisis and more importantly, that we must do things differently with the intention of building back even better
