SAM TAMBANI RESEARCH INSTITUTE (SATRI)
The Sam Tambani Research Institute is a Public Benefit Non-profit Company registered in 2012. The idea of establishing the institute was perceived jointly by the NUM and MIT. It arose from the need to consolidate NUM efforts to ensure that workers get a fair share of what they produce which enables them in turn to improve their livelihoods.
SATRI would be responsible for gathering and analysing such information through its targeted research agenda.

2.OBJECTIVES FOR THE PROJECT
To host a successful Energy Choices and the Protection of Workers Interests in South Africa symposium for SATRI
1. PROJECT DESCRIPTION (WHAT WE WERE ASKED TO DO)
Glasshouse was tasked to host a symposium for the stakeholders of the NUM in Johannesburg.
2. SOLUTION (WHAT WE DECIDED TO DO)
With the SATRI team, Glasshouse was able to secure a booking with the Birchwood Le Grande hotel as the venue of choice for the symposium. Drafted the program of the day, organised catering with the hotel manager, sent out invites and made phone call follow ups to check if they were received, created and printed out name tags, organised goodie bag contents.
3. EXECUTION (HOW WE DID IT)
Glasshouse was given the guest list which the invitations were supposed to be sent to while a program checklist of what needs to be done was drafted to keep the team in check with all the activities which had to be done before the day of the symposium.
4. EVALUATION (OUTCOME)
Glasshouse succeeded with organising the symposium and the client was happy with the outcome of the event.
