I had a privilege of attending the Opportunity International Global Network's 2015 meeting conference held in Edinburgh, Scotland, U.K. recently. It was indeed a global conference.
The countries that were represented were U.S., U.K., Ghana, Malawi, Rwanda, Uganda, Colombia, India, Canada and Poland, but the roles that the participants assume and play are a lot more significant than the number of countries represented at the conference.
[From left to right, back to front] OI Global Network CEO, Chief Technology Officer, India CEO, Chief Financial Officer, SVP of Operations, Africa CEO, Uganda CEO, Chief Operating Officer, Chief of Staff, OI UK International Director, OI Africa Chairman, Ghana CEO, Chief Transformational Impact Officer/Latin Africa CEO, Rwanda CEO (me), OI US SVP of Strategic Support, Malawi CEO and Colombia CEO. Not pictured were Chief Risk Officer and SVP of Product Development for their early departure. Their names are not mentioned for their privacy.
It was a three-day, two-night conference, but the depth and contents of the conference were impressive and made me feel deeply honored to be part of the conference. Because of the sensitivity of the contents, I am afraid I cannot share too much.
Oh Lord, thank you for the opportunity to be part of the ministry that you have entrusted with Opportunity International in helping eradicate the chronic poverty from the lives of many people around the world. May You bless the leadership with your divine wisdom so that they may carry out the responsibilities assigned to them in a way that reflects Your love and that will bring You the honor and glory!!! - Jeffrey
