Friends, welcome to my new blog. I’ve been on the job for 5 months now, and am looking forward to sharing my view of Opportunity over the coming weeks.
My aim in these early days is to visit as many Network Members as possible. So far, I’ve been to Tanzania, Kenya, Malawi, Chennai, South Africa and Ghana (visiting both OISL and SAT), and joined board meetings of Opportunity Australia, US, and the UK . I’ve been able to participate in the global HR conference, the Risk and Audit offsite, and the recent Emerging Leaders training program. Before the end of the year I will travel to the US for the Opportunity Network Board meeting, then travel on to Colombia to visit our business there.
A Global Community
As I make my way around the Opportunity world, I’m reminded how big it is. Did you know that if you work for an Opportunity Network member organisation, then you are part of a global community of over 12,000 people in 45 organisations serving more than 5 million Opportunity clients in 28 countries? Wow!
