In conversation with Kevin McGrory
What inspired you during the project?
I am always inspired by the enthusiasm and thirst for knowledge that the participants show. There is a level of engagement displayed that demonstrates to me the great potential that exists throughout the continent. Education and access to teaching resources are fundamental building blocks to raise living standards for all by harnessing human talent to drive growth. I have had a long and fulfilling career in the oil and gas business in Africa and it is a pleasure to be able to give something back by helping to build local capacity in key skills such as commercial negotiations.
What was the most fulfilling aspect of the work?
The most fulfilling aspect of the work was seeing the participants fully engage in the process and develop an understanding of the key skill sets that a successful negotiator needs to have and the tools that can be deployed to make a negotiation a success.
