Team Peru 3: Final Week of Preparation

Team Peru 3 ( #ibmcsc peru ) have spent the last 3 months getting to know each other and preparing for our assignments in Trujillo, Peru.

We are a diverse team from around the world:

Thankfully, for me, everyone speaks English!

During the last 3 months, combined with our normal day job, we’ve looked at cultural adaptability, international development in emerging markets, team development, consulting skills, media and communication, and how to work with Peruvian organisations. The combined skills of the team has meant we’ve all had something to contribute.

We’ve also been sorting out our logistics: flights, hotels, finances, health and safety, and business visas. My business visa required a trip down to London for an interview at the Consulate of Peru.

With now only a week to go, we are completing our preparation and will be starting to pack. My next blog will be the start of my very long journey.

  1. I am excited and nervous. I never usually start packing early, but this time I’ve started to lay things out already. Office, city, beach, trek, warm, cold, casual, posh. I’ve got to take it all. How many pairs of shoes do I take? OMG – I’ve turned into a ‘norm’!
    And apparently I have to have enough room in the case to bring back gifts!!! Hence my new awesome Patagucci 100l (!!!) wheely bag.
    Packing for climbing trips is so much easier.
    I’m also very nervous about not having my on hand support service around. I rely on Pete to fix everything. 😯
