Ryan Pugh, Junior Business Associate (Volunteer), Challenges Worldwide
Morgan Rees, Senior Mentor, Challenges Worldwide
A representative from SDI
In an increasingly globalised world companies eager to succeed internationally have come to realise the benefits of having a workforce with an international outlook.

Challenges Worldwide, a UK funded charity working in partnership with SDI and Scotgrad, has a wealth of experience in helping businesses to internationalise their workforce by placing young professionals overseas to give them hands-on and capacity building experience that allows them to become more effective employees in their respective fields.  

Ryan Pugh joins us to talk about his experience of a 12-week placement in Zambia through Challenges Worldwide, the difference he made to the business, as well as some unexpected additional benefits to the local community.

Scotgrad helps businesses grow through graduate staff who are part-funded by the Scottish Government.

Morgan Rees has recently returned from Ghana and will be speaking about his role as a Senior Mentor working with young associates and enterprises in country.  His talk will focus on the part Challenges plays in empowering enterprises and people thus facilitating, growth, trade and finance.
Currently working across 40 countries, Challenges Worldwide has particularly extensive experience in Ghana and sub Saharan Africa.  With the Chamber and SDI’s growing relationship with multiple Ghanaian businesses and governmental bodies, now is the time to become involved.

Join us to discover how your business can benefit from this project, and tap into this valuable source of global talent.
