Greetings From Guy
Since last year’s Tunis conference on Education, Employment and Entrepreneurship eleven business schools had joined GBSN, bringing the total above 70 across all continents. I was impressed and gratified that more than a hundred came together at short notice, as the conference had had to be moved from Ghana, to discuss management education for the developing world.
To me the most emotional moment was Rebecca Weintraub’s presentation about Harvard’s Global Health Delivery Project. GDHonline spans more than 182 countries. GDH communities focus on critical health issues and provides expert guidance that is credible, relevant and timely. She told us how Lorenzo Dorr, who was a Liberian physician’s assistant is training community health workers in rural Liberia in order to try to contain Ebola. What a tribute to the power of good management education!
