Awakening the giant within: are you ready to awaken yours?

This article is the second of a series that we published in a regional magazine a few years back. The concepts that we discussed then and the message of these articles are still applicable today, hence the republication here!

One clarification: in the context of this article we will use NGO to refer to not-for-profit and non-governmental organizations. Continue reading
