about MaFI

MaFI workshop during the SEEP Annual Conference

Proposed topics for 2012

Progress in the last year, achievements, challenges and strategic reflection (how would you like MaFI to be in 2013?). Then we split into subgroups. Here's some options:

Local Learning Groups: experiences from Bangladesh (MDF-Rajiv), Rwanda (Debora Randall), Brazil (Gianluca) and ideas to create a promotion and coordination system

Production of knowledge from MaFI: ideas to come up with a sustainable system to synthesise and produce briefs, papers, cases studies, etc.

Capacity building of market facilitators: is it now the right time to thnk again about an international capacity building system? How ambitious can we be? Should we start small and come up with a MaFI standard for facilitators' skills and attitudes?

MaFI-festo

A manifesto to change the rules of the international development cooperation system to make it more facilitation-friendly for inclusive market development initiatives.

MaFI Ambassadors

Ways to make MaFI work for you (Please discuss with the facilitator in advance)

Do your meet often with colleagues nearby? Connect that group with MaFI

Turn your project team into a local learning group

Bring training or mentoring discussions into MaFI. Why keeping them amongst a few when they could change the world or get inputs from top-class experts?

Make MaFI part of your competitive advantages when writing a proposal

Do you or any of your colleagues have to organise a presentation about a topic that is relevant to MaFI members? Why not doing it thorugh MaFI to boost your outreach and enrich it with the collective wisdom of MaFI members?

Giving your blog more visibility and a specialist audience (through RSS integration).

Ways in which you can help MaFI

Promote a discussion that matters to you: share experiences and resources, ask questions, challenge members, etc.

Use the 4 BRICs for effective interactions: Brief, Relevant, Interesting and Clear

Use the "like" (thumbs up) button when you like a discussion or a post.

Close the learning loops: if you got enough feedback, let MaFI know what you learned or how you used the knowledge to change the world

Say "THANKS" in public to all of those who have interacted with you.

Embed MaFI documents from Slideshare into your websites and blogs. E.g. http://www.mesopartner.com/en/our-approach/networking/

Spread MaFI love around the world: talk about it with your friends and colleagues.

Show off your afiliation to MaFI in your CV. Being an active and committed MaFI member means that you are a world changer.

Help to synthesise a discussion you care about and share it with the world.
