Silver circle initiates light-hearted yet meaningful conversations over a cup of coffee, organizes dinner for those valuable and focused meetings. It brings together individuals who either make decisions or are in capacity to influence responsibility decisions.
Silver circle is not any industry body; neither is it a pressure group and certainly not a lobby. It is just a meeting, talking, unwinding and smiling group of people whose professional lives revolve around social responsibility and personal efforts are focused at sustainable living. All silver circle members are social scientists who are committed to the development of the country either through our company’s social responsibility arm or through the social enterprise or an organization that we work with.

“It is a circle of Individuals who are seen as the torch bearers of hope, a silver lining around those dark clouds, the obstacles before development of communities, society and country.”

Why it is needed?

In order to increase our capacity and strengthen our commitments, all of us need to join hands, share knowledge and experiences, and on top of it all, know and understand what and who makes this ‘development sector’ as they say. We meet over coffee or dine together. That’s it. And, social initiatives, developmental ideas and synergies that that we form are just a by-product of our meetings.
