TRANSFORM hosts a Partnership Briefing virtual event to discuss how public-private partnerships can help achieve the SDGs

Published on: 05/01/2022

On the 13th of December, we brought together senior leaders from TRANSFORM’s core organisations Unilever, EY and the FCDO to discuss how public-private partnerships (PPP) can help achieve the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).

The webinar was a discussion around the insights from the Partnership Flagship Report and featured a panel with TRANSFORM’s management team on some of the key questions around forming and maintaining a successful partnership. Our panel included:

  • Clive Allison, Global Sustainability Director, Unilever
  • Richard Wright, Behavioural Science Director, Unilever
  • Chris Edwards, Technology and Innovation Adviser – Strategic Partnerships, UK’s Foreign, Commonwealth & Development Office (FCDO)
  • Jessie Coates, Global Impact Entrepreneurship Leader, EY

During the session, the panellists shared their first-hand experience from TRANSFORM from the past 6 year about how to build effective PPP and what they’ve learnt along the way and the challenges they’ve faced to create a successful initiative.

The event also included a live workshop demonstrating how TRANSFORM works with impact enterprises, outlining the relevant expertise each organisation contributes to help businesses grow. The session was concluded by an interactive Q&A, where participants asked the panel for their advice and found out how they can work alongside TRANSFORM.
