What is your role or relationship with CESO?
How long have you been working or volunteering with CESO?
What motivates you to work or volunteer with CESO?
Volunteering as a CESO VA is an exciting way to help build stronger, more sustainable communities around the globe. I really enjoy the adventure of travelling to far-flung places and learning about their cultures. Each assignment is such a rich opportunity to both share and learn.
What is your most remarkable experience or memory of CESO?
Being taken on a weekend fishing trip by my Kazakh client and six of his friends. It was a drive of hundreds of miles across dirt and desert roads, with stops every so many miles for speeches and vodka toasts!
Economic development is important because…
Along with education, I see it as the bedrock for a society to develop financially, politically and intellectually.
What advice would you give other Volunteer Advisors?
Do as much fact finding as you can before you leave! Time will be short on site, so detailed preparation is vital!
Is there anything else you would like to add?
Thank you CESO for trusting me to do these assignments on your behalf.
