Trialogue hosts a range of informative events tailored specifically for professionals in the corporate responsibility field. The Trialogue CSI Conference is the most established of our events, being the leading annual event for CSI since 2008. We also run sustainability and CSI forums throughout the year. These attract practitioners by providing an opportunity to learn and engage on topical issues.
Trialogue’s CSI Conference and Expo, running since 2008, is the leading annual event for CSI and development practitioners to meet, share and learn. At Trialogue, our mission is to ensure that the annual conference provides delegates with new and inspired thinking, ultimately leading to improved practice and effectiveness of corporate social investment (CSI).
It is essential that corporates, government and civil society convene to explore what is working, what is not, and how we can work together to ensure that every rand spent by companies on development is used to good effect.
The Trialogue CSI Conference attracts more than 400 delegates from companies and NPOs from around the country. Plenary and breakaway sessions give space to more than 40 speakers and are designed to draw insights from delegates, which are then shared on this website.

Trialogue has been hosting CSI forums since 2013. Held four times a year, these sessions provide valuable opportunities for corporate CSI practitioners to network, stay abreast of emerging trends and thinking within the sector, and share insights in a confidential environment.

In mid-2014, EY and Trialogue entered into a knowledge sharing partnership. Part of this partnership includes hosting forums where relevant sustainability topics are discussed and debated. Held bi-monthly in Johannesburg, the forums bring together thought leaders and focuses on best practice in the field of corporate sustainability, offering insights and stimulating debate with an informed audience.
Trialogue and EY are also collaborating on a research project to explore the mandate and functioning of social and ethics committees in South Africa.
