Well, the project has become that much more real. This week, I got the chance to meet the other members of my China deployment team, otherwise known as Team China 18, for the first time. It was strange — from everything I heard and read about the IBM Corporate Service Corps, I went into this teleconference already expecting everyone to be articulate, passionate, and as excited about this endeavor as I am. But knowing it and feeling it first hand, even over the phone, are entirely different, and I have to say I was really impressed by the people I will soon be working with.
As our first group assignment, we had put together slide pack to introduce ourselves, both to our prospective clients and to one another. To share this slide pack with you, I have created a permanent page on the blog — see About Team China 18 in the menu bar above. Head on over and meet the team! You’ll be hearing a lot more about them, and with any luck you may be hearing from them directly, in the weeks and months to come.
