On 12th June 2014, tomorrow, the adventure begins!
I leave the UK for a 1 month assignment to Mafeking in South Africa as part of a 14-strong team with the IBM Corporate Service Corps (CSC). This blog starts as my journal of this adventure for any friends, family and colleagues interested in following my personal journey.
I am very excited to be spending this time in Africa, not least due to this being the only continent I have not visited before (Antarctica included!) I am sure this will prove to be a rich cultural experience with both personal and business challenges and many lessons for me along the way. I will do my best to record these here in a way that makes for an interesting read for those around the world giving up their time to read my blog.
The CSC brings teams together from around the world to create strong teams with diverse business skills and then gives their resources freely to help communities work on major projects and make positive changes in developing markets.
