What we do

Pro Bono Consulting Projects

#fancy-title-59ec3b5968349 a{ color: #26aef0; }
Our projects span over a 10 – 12 week period, during which a team of five student consultants together with working professionals, volunteer their time and expertise to help a nonprofit partner to solve a problem. The project engagement ends with a report and a presentation outlining recommendations, potential risks and challenges, sustainable long-term solutions, and implementation strategies. We have two project cycles per year which coincide with the student semesters.

Our projects help nonprofits in the following areas:

Corporate Programmes

#fancy-title-59ec3b596a6fd a{ color: #26aef0; }
Conjunct Consulting designs tailored skills-based volunteering programmes to help your company employees leverage their professional skills to increase nonprofits’ and social enterprises’ organisational capacity and knowledge, build your reputation and visibility in the Corporate Social Responsibility space, and provide team building and employee engagement opportunities.
During our corporate engagements, we act as a bridge between the nonprofit partner and the corporate partner, conducting a needs analysis, scoping discrete projects that match the skill sets on offer, ensuring project deliverables, and assisting with project facilitation and execution. You can work with us through a Corporate Scalathon, and Community Impact Project, or a different kind of customised engagement tailored just for your company.
