“The Opportunity Collaboration was absolutely stunning! I was awestruck by the great insights on leading a superior management team and how to have good relations with donors which the instructors tackled in a brief, but concise way. For the first time in my life, I flew in a plane, visited a foreign nation and attended a high-profile conference. It was a life changing experience. Long live opportunity Collaboration!” — Wiclif Otieno, Director, Kito International, Kenya.
