The end of one adventure leads into the next.... Louie joins a new team of consultants from across the world to deliver Management Development training to Microsoft managers.. from Dubai to Johannesburg; London to Norway....
Funny how strange things happen! Five months ago I received an odd email from someone I didn't know, saying they had been contacted by a US-based company who were trying to pull together a global team to deliver management training within Microsoft. Something about that email sounded legitimate. I rang Karyn and we chatted.... having checked the level and legitimacy of my credentials through Skillfair, she passed on my details.
A couple of months later, following a conference call interview with Microsoft colleagues from Paris and Seattle I was invited onto their 'certification' process. A trip to Redmond - Microsoft's headquarters - had us going through a rigorous 6 days process.
Why this experience is so interesting to me, is how it came about. Only 2 weeks before I received the email from Karyn, I had updated my Skillfair profile. Although I had been a subscriber for several years and had various approaches, this one was the first that had real substance. The opportunity came to me. I stayed present with the situation and at each decision point, checked in with myself that it felt OK to go on to the next. I went with the flow and in so doing, stayed in flow. This has been a wonderful adventure which has resulted in having Microsoft as my newest client.
