Guest post to come! IBM and Corporate Service Corps team up to support WC prep in South Africa


IBMI recently found out that a former classmate of mine, Caitlin Halferty, from my master’s program at Georgetown University, will be traveling to South Africa – East London to be more specific – as part of their corporate service corps (https://www-146.ibm.com/corporateservicecorps/).  They’ll be working to support tourism efforts in East London, a city close to Port Elizabeth, site of some of the WC matches.  Take that Mahindra Satyam!

ibmcorpserviceShe’s kindly agreed to blog about her project – so watch out for some posts about real-time/real-life corporate initiatives to support South Africa around the World Cup (and likely soften the market for IBM in the future)!

And I’m hopeful that this connection will be a fruitful and informative one leading up to the games!

Thanks Caitlin!
