South African members of the International Academy of Professional Dialogue are in the process of developing the South African Academy.

"We are four International Academy members with a common deep belief in the need for and potential of Dialogue, both locally and globally.  We are talking regularly together, and with Peter, Jane and the other Trustees of the International Academy as well as with other South Africans, to see how to best bring the Academy of Professional Dialogue to a South African context. A number of open meetings are planed in Cape Town in late November for those who want to learn more. We would love to share our journey so do contact usjoin the Academy or simply watch this space to see what unfolds!"
