After a few weeks waiting for a decision from the European Agency for Reconstruction I am delighted to announce that I'm going to be going to the Mitrovica area in Kosovo to deliver some management training over the next couple of weeks.
I'm really looking forward to it as it will my first trip to the former Yugoslavia since I delivered training in Bosnia-Herzegovina in October/November 1998. It's also another place I have never worked in before which is also good.
Some fairly scary economic statistics there though. Off the top of my head I understand that there are apparently only 6000 people working and 43 000 unemployed! I think I've got my work cut out to help local companies and managers create enough new jobs.
I'm hoping to blog whilst I'm over there to share my experiences.
