Simon is currently moderating four sessions for Business Action for Africa

The 2009 series 'Harnessing the Power of Business for Development Impact' concluded that doing good business is very often the most powerful and systainable way to reduce poverty.  To read Simon's summary of the lessons learned, click here.

The current series builds on this and aims to continue to deepen understanding of how the sector can best harness core business practices to achieve the greatest potential impact on development and poverty alleviation.  This series is organised by Business Action for Africa, DfID and the Harvard Kennedy School.
