New issue of Alliance explores learning from failure

The latest issue of Alliance magazine explores the question of learning from failure. Guest edited by Donika Dimovska of the Jacobs Foundation, I used the theme of the issue to reflect on my past failures at the Pears Foundation in relation to work on Israel and Palestine – a hard article to write!

I hope philanthropy practitioners reading the feature will find it useful in the context of how to set realistic but ambitious goals and why it’s important to consider what amount of risk to assume. I also hope it inspires more conversations on the topic.

The new issue also carries a lively and candid interview with Luc Tayart de Borms reflecting on his 25 years at the King Baudouin Foundation and role at the heart of European philanthropy.
