International Development

Burness has worked with a variety of groups to help spread the word about some of the major obstacles holding communities back from achieving their full potential, whether that’s a lack of public transportation in major global cities or the importance of creating alternative educational models for nomadic societies.

We also believe the conversation about development must come directly from those who live it. In that vein, our work has included building communications capacity within organizations and government ministries, as well as working with development professionals and emerging leaders from across Africa and Asia to train and coach them on persuasive writing, media engagement and public speaking.
