OfficeXpats member Tobias Eigen, as our special BBC guest, will offer his BBC-Ignite shot at fame
Tobias Eigen, new BBC visitor, has graciously agreed to do a 5-minute Ignite draft show for this Friday’s BBC. Read about Tobias at saidia.org & africaroundtable.org landline:206.842.1467 mobile:206.375.7984 skype:tobiaseigen email:[email protected]
Tobias was raised in Germany, USA, Botswana and Kenya. He loves Africa and has worked on technology issues with nonprofits and development agencies working in Africa since 1992. As a volunteer, he runs Kabissa.org, a networking platform connecting people and organizations for networking, peer learning and information sharing.
Tobias also leads The Africa Roundtable which meets on the first Friday of every month @ OfficeXpats and includes remote participants via Internet teleconference. Registration is now open at africaroundtable.org for the next roundtable on May 4th which will feature three very interesting talks:
1) Jane Bowman, a Bainbridge Island resident who works at Eagle Harbor Books. Jane spent the last few months in Uganda working with the Refugee Law Center and has agreed to talk about her experiences and reactions from Ugandans to the KONY2012 spectacle.
2) Auwal (Rafasanjani) Musa is visiting from Nigeria and has agreed to discuss the work of CISLAC, the advocacy organization in Abuja that he founded and leads.
3) Tom Lerquin is an island resident and leads the Kitsap County chapter of Bicycles for Humanity. Tom, who is also participating in Ignite Bainbridge Island, will give a 5 minute Ignite talk about the bicycle program and its contribution to development projects in South Africa.
Reminder: a small donation to OfficeXpats ($3-5, or whatever you can afford) for coffee/tea & breakfast service is welcome; or consider an OfficeXpats “Passport Membership” for $15 a month (see all the benefits of Passport Membership at OfficeXpats.com) — such a deal!
