KD to KE

The team leader I've been working with, KellanD, and his team depart for Kenya at the end of the month. It's been a ton of fun working with him, he's got a fabulous team, created an experience based on partnership with long term workers on the ground and facilitated lots of leadership with his team.

Here is a quick behind the scenes outline of some of our meetings and conversations. A lot of it will look very incomplete - it is, mostly taken from either rough notes or twitter updates. However, it's been a great experience for me since he's a top notch leader.

I'm really looking forward to hearing how it goes once they return.
