Growth International - organisational and personal development

This section of our website is devoted to information about projects in which we are involved.

The first one is entitled 'Dignity'. The idea for this came from a conversation between Peter Desmond and his friend and colleague, Steve Mullins following a roundtable dialogue on the role of business in international development on 17th February 2015.  When Peter asked Steve, "What should I be doing for the next 10 years?" Steve instantly replied, "Dignity". Since then Peter has been compiling thoughts and readings on this subject. Do join us on this journey and comment as you wish. 

The second project builds on a Masters Degree that Peter Desmond undertook at the Institute of Development Studies at Sussex University. His dissertation was entitled, "Towards a Circular Economy, what are the constraints to the recycling of mobile phones in South Africa?". It involved primary research in South Africa and earned Peter a distinction overall for his MA.
