Nelson Mandela impacts young project managers
In South Africa, Nelson Mandela’s birthday is honored every year by ordinary South Africans across the world giving just 67 minutes of their time to impoverished communities.
For the past three years, Sandro Quattrocchi MSc, PMP® from SQ Data & Consulting (Pty) Ltd t/a SQDC Business School and Sue Hall – PMP® from African Bank’s CSI division have put their time and resources into training and developing no less than 16 budding project managers – all of whom work on social impact interventions – as their contribution to the ’67 minutes for Mandela’ day.
“We know it’s more than 67 minutes in the year but it’s something we believe in and it’s a great way to honor a great man” said Quattrocchi.
Throughout the year, all 16 project management interns deliver social impact projects at the front line, where it matters most, improving the quality of lives in impoverished communities and contributing positively to the developmental priorities in South Africa. They are sponsored by African Bank and mentored by Sue Hall.
Once a year, the project management interns attend a formal Project Management Foundations and PMP® exam prep course presented by Sandro Quattrocchi, Managing Director of SQDC Business School, a PMI Registered Education Provider (R.E.P)
