Charlie & I worked in Uganda for a 12 week program. This aimed to improve business knowledge & skill of the entrepreneurs that had applied. As the team leader it was my role to oversee the project & ensure it could create the most impact as possible.
Throughout the program i was more than impressed with Charlie's attentiveness, willingness to help others & patience. To name only a few positive traits. Working abroad is another challenge which i thought Charlie handled very well. The Ugandan locals always required sensitivity & understanding which Charlie always showed. He worked very hard to meet deadlines, putting as many work hours in & approached situations with optimism.
As the project also required group work it was great to see how Charlie motivated the group & seemed to be a key factor in why the group carried out such great work. I would also like to add that the range of cultural backgrounds & beliefs of individuals on the project was extremely diverse. Charlie handled all this in his stride which is testament to his behaviour throughout the program on the whole.
