Next Generation Consultants Presents Learning Opportunities For CSI & Non-profit Practitioners

Johannesburg, South Africa – Next Generation Consultants, a leading provider of impact management and measurement services, is proud to announce its upcoming bootcamp and masterclasses for practitioners. The practical, interactive sessions are designed to help practitioners learn more about impact management and measurement, move their organisation’s performance management practice from monitoring and evaluation to impact assessment, enhance their career with new skills and take advantage of the impact economy.

We recognize that one size learning solutions do not fit everyone, and learning is social, multidisciplinary, and takes practice. Therefore, we have developed courses that will not only help practitioners learn new things and improve their knowledge but also advance their organizations and grow their positive impact on society.
