After several successful Global Pro Bono Summit and the first European Pro Bono Summit in Paris in October 2016 the event is aiming at providing useful content for both newcomers and experienced Pro Bono practitioners by examining the role of Pro Bono in corporate leadership development programmes, presenting a European marketplace for corporates and intermediary organisations or creating local or multinational pro bono programmes.
We are building on the experiences of the previous Pro Bono Summits planning to provide new learning opportunities and a specific European flavor for all participants. We hope in addition to those with previous experience in the pro bono field that new organisations will join us and that new techniques will be presented that will serve useful for anyone.
The Summit is bringing together stakeholders from both the corporate and the NGO world in Europe and beyond.
Presentations, panel debates and breakout sessions help participants to deep dive into the different techniques of corporate pro bono services. Next to this we actively help participants to make connections and network through a marketplace during the program. Equal number of corporate and pro bono intermediaries are participating thus the European Summit was a unique place for corporate – NGO partnership building and co-creation. We aimed to connect European level CR, HR, PR leaders and managers of corporations with intermediary organisations (from all regions of Europe) that are creating first class pro bono programs in the different countries of Europe.
