FIDIC YPMTP 2016

Thank you all

In September 2015 I was awarded the opportunity to partake in FIDIC Young Professional Training Program. Not knowing what to expect myself and the rest of the team went head first into a new adventure, and what an adventure it was.


The online training started off in early March 2016, and the learning continued into late August 2016. It then all culminated in Marrakesh Morocco with a 5-day training course. During these 5 days we covered the main principles that needs to be mastered when supporting, running and operating a successful consulting firm.

The mentors team and the main guru Mr Steen Frederiksen surpassed our expectations, what we learned during this year and in those 5 days will stay with us for years and years to come.


The final icing on the cake was presenting to the whole FIDIC Executive committee and the larger FIDIC community which went swimmingly and also getting to know some of the key names in our industry and creating friendships with our fellow YPs and senior personnel from across the world that we will cherish forever.


Thank you Steen, Andrew, Robin and Felix! Your inputs mean more than you could ever imagine!
