Today, it was a huge preparation day for me and my local project managers and people I’m working with: finalizing logistics, field visits, checking if all is organized in the guest houses and the agenda details. In a few days here in Eldoret, more than 20 managers from different countries and functions will arrive and participate in the first Making More Health leadership week in Africa ( we run those courses very successfully in India since 2015). They will learn and experience many different situations in field visits, look with different perspectives on how people innovate and lead in informal setups, learn about social entrepreneurial thinking and develop a training by the week for farmers on basic business skills. It will be a win win – for everybody.
But one thing is sure: all those field visits, discussions with people “from the ground” , the deep understanding what is moving the people … it would not happen without the support of my local team. So, thanks to you and let’s look forward to an interesting and impactful leadership week starting from next Sunday onwards! A week that will link business thinking to social innovation.
