Our experts have extensive experience in providing strategic and operational guidance to both private and public sector. Their work covers from national anti-corruption strategies and action plans to organisational integrity (ethics & compliance) management systems, from national social responsibility strategies to corporate social responsibility programs, from the use of ICT in education to business assistance in local communities and regional development.
In 2013, two of our experts were part of a team of three that designed, prepared and delivered the first Romanian training for Social Responsibility managers (*over 150 trainees completed the program). Previously, they delivered over 20,000 hours of training on Social Responsibility and over 10,000 hours on Integrity (Ethics & Compliance) Management. Their collaborations span from UNDP Romania to JCI Romania, from Romanian Ministry of Internal Affairs or Ministry of Information Society to Transparency International Romania.
