In 2005 we got a phone call from Michelle Oliva, who was calling from a cell phone in Malawi, Africa. The wonderful thing about this business and our presence on the Internet is that you never know where the next call is coming from. It shouldn’t surprise me, because of the global nature of enterprise in the information age, but it still does. Michelle actually worked for an organization in the U.S. called Chemonics. Owned entirely by its employees, Chemonics is an ISO-9001 certified international development company. For more than 37 years, they have partnered with local and international organizations to promote social and economic change around the world. Michele Oliva was working with a Malawi company helping to promote a brand of sauce in an international market.
