Kate – mistress of identifying transferable skills – has retired

Kate – mistress of identifying transferable skills – has retired

Kate with our Gambian partners Lisong and Adama Bah

Many of you will have worked with Kate – some of you will have heard of her and some will wonder who on earth she is!

Kate and I ( Sallie ) met in a garden in The Gambia 20 years ago and that’s when we decided to create people and places together.

Kate is very much a people person….not great at systems – some of you no doubt have stories that will perfectly exemplify this!

Kate’s greatest skill? – listening and identifying a skill that maybe even the volunteer didn’t see they had!

She was brilliant at matching the right person to the right place,

We want to mark her retirement -if you are able – please send a few words and or photos and we shall put a memory book together

Here’s a note from our partner in Cambodia

“Be proud that you created a real force for good that has, and continues to, provide quality support for projects around the world.  The thorough preparation of each and every volunteer is a great comfort for projects at the sharp end”

If you feel able to send something please email it to sallie@travel-peopleandplaces.co.uk or dianne@travel-peopleandplaces.co.uk – it would be great if you could get it to us by the end of July.
