Over 80 corporate leaders from various public sector agencies, multi-national companies and small & medium enterprises (SMEs) such as Ministry of Finance, Shell, SP Group, Neo Group and Greenpac were engaged as fellows in driving strategic corporate giving and/or mentors to guide others in the work of business for social good that is collaborative and impactful.
