Speaking of innovations, we received recognition for a Just In Time Training product developed for the National Disaster Preparedness Training Center(NDPTC) at the 2015 World Conference on Disaster Risk Reduction in Sendai, Japan. This showcase was a joint initiative of BBC Media Action, Global Network for Disaster Reduction (GNDR), Netherlands Red Cross, Plan International, and the United Nations Office for Disaster Risk Reduction (UNISDR). It was an honor to work with Dr. Eddie Bernard, a Nobel Laureate and leading expert on tsunamis, on this project. As always, I'm grateful to the team at NDPTC for the opportunities to work on such impactful projects.

It's been a pretty hectic first half of 2015. Looking forward to even more action in the second half!
