Incite clients access thinking and insights from a global network of organisations that are committed to positive change.

National Business Initiative (NBI)
Coalition of South African and multinational companies, working towards sustainable development in South Africa

Launched in 1995 by former President Nelson Mandela, the NBI is a focal point for business-led collective action in the spheres of housing, capacity building, crime, education and climate change. Incite’s relationship with the NBI spans some 15 years. Jonathon served on the Advisory Committee to the NBI Sustainable Futures Unit (2004-2006) and Incite continues to provide advisory services as requested, including assistance with annual reporting, training and strategic dialogues. Initiating the CDP to South Africa in 2007, we engaged the NBI as a fitting lead partner for this global disclosure initiative.

University of Cape Town Graduate School of Business (UCT GSB)
The leading international business school of South Africa’s oldest university

Jonathon and Nicola present guest lectures for each of the School’s programmes – the Masters in Business Administration (MBA), the Executive MBA, Postgraduate Diploma in Business Administration, the Associate in Management – as well as contributing to various Executive Education courses. From 2002-2012 Jonathon was a Visiting Senior Lecturer, responsible for running a module on ‘Business and Sustainable Development’ as part of the core course ‘Business, Government and Society’; he is currently a Teaching Fellow at the Graduate School of Business.

University of Stellenbosch Business School (USB)
The first business school from an African university to achieve all three of the major international accreditations

As visiting faculty, Jonathon is responsible for convening and teaching a core course on Sustainable Enterprise, in which postgraduate students critically review the role of business in addressing societal challenges, with a particular focus on the African context. Students consider the merits and practicalities of implementing a strategic response to environmental, social and governance issues, critique recent trends in corporate accountability, and assess the implications of key global initiatives on sustainability, including the UN Sustainable Development Goals. Through a negotiating game, students reflect on the power dynamics necessary to effect broader systemic change.

Zambia Business in Development Facility (ZBiDF)
Multi-stakeholder platform facilitating action on key challenges in Zambia

Incite supports the work and ambitions of ZBiDF, by coaching the team and some key stakeholders on Shared Value. We contribute to workshops and public engagements aimed at fostering a deeper understanding of the business opportunities associated with addressing societal challenges. And who doesn’t love working in Zambia?
