I first met Józefa Fawcett, when she visited Astana here in Kazakhstan to deliver a week-long management development programme hosted by ENI and at which a variety of attendees came from various organisations in our network, Kazenergy being one of them. Her style of training delivery was excellent, particularly as she was having to use someone else’s training material that had been produced with a predominantly Western management approach, which she started to realise was somewhat challenging for us to try to apply in our various organisational units. Upon realising this, she adapted slightly the content to better fit our cultural requirements. She did all of her training with us in English but with consecutive translation from an interpreter who conveyed the same in Russian. She even replaced the training films that were provided in American English, with Russian speaking alternatives that she sourced for us during the week. The whole group very much enjoyed the training and took her out for a cultural evening visiting Bayterek and also an authentic dinner. I would have no hesitation in recommending Józefa to do further training work here in Kazakhstan.
