We started the morning playing bonding games in classic Global Kids-style. Then we spent a couple of hours talking about the overall direction of our work, how to best collaborate with each other, and stay abreast of upcoming opportunities and technologies.
Afterwards we dived into the OLP budget, looking at how our different programs are funded and how all our activities are tracked and reported financially. We do so much work and are lucky enough to have funding from so many sources. It was really interesting seeing it all on one complex spreadsheet.
After lunch, we were very ready to play some putt-putt golf. Randall’s Island has a really nice 18-hole course, although I lamented the lack of dragons, giant clowns and moats. The game swiftly devolved as Barry, Amira and others raced around playing some hybrid of polo, hockey and fishing. Good times, good times.
