What is your role or relationship with CESO?
Volunteer Advisor

How long did you volunteer with CESO?
Since 2008

What motivates you to work or volunteer with CESO?
I strongly believe in CESO’s mission. I like to provide support to others, but I know pretty well that through this process I am also getting a lot from a human point of view in terms of culture and people relationships. Also, it is an opportunity for professional learning.

What is your most remarkable experience or memory of CESO?
I have great memories from each of my previous assignments. In the end, it is the human contact that remains. Even after many years, I still remember and think about this client, participant, country representative I worked with in Philippines, Tanzania, Kazakhstan, Senegal, Burkina Faso, Guyana, Armenia…

Economic development is important because…
Stronger economies, better lives.

What advice would you give other Volunteer Advisors?
Communicate with your client. Reach them before the assignment. Be ready to adjust to their needs.

Is there anything else you would like to add?
