About

Why we are here

Our purpose

In a fast-changing world of volatility, ambiguity and disruption, organisational trust is declining. Absence of trust deprives people and teams from growth and opportunity whilst the human and organisational costs are skyrocketing. We believe rebuilding trust is a shared responsibility. That we need to build more inclusive organisations of dignity and purpose. That every person and organisation can bring about positive change in markets and societies and be a force for good.

The Story

ViewsUnlimited has its roots in event hosting. Amid the Arab Spring in 2011, the very first project involved organising and moderating a public dialogue in the heart of Cairo, Egypt, in partnership with the Masterpeace foundation.

In a country scattered by disappointment, divide and desperation, the event featured a keynote address by the South African Ambassador to Egypt. People from all walks of life learned about South Africa’s transition to democracy, the relentless work of the Truth & Reconciliation Committee and discussed the future of post-revolution Egypt.

Building on this experience, ViewsUnlimited expanded specialism in human behaviour as an organisational learning & development provider. With a global footprint and strong presence in the Middle East, ViewsUnlimited has built a reputation on providing engaging high-impact programmes to clients in the areas of Finance & Technology, FMCG, Sustainable Development, Governments and International Organisations.

Trust is a psychological state comprising the intention to accept vulnerability based upon positive expectations of the intentions or behaviour of another
