The regional course on Project Design and Planning in the Context of GMS Cooperation and Integration organized by the Mekong Institute is the most interesting training program that I have ever taken part in. Through numerous practical and interesting training methods, the course provided me not only various knowledge of project management but also great opportunities to improve many soft skills such as presentation, team work and so on.

Moreover, it was really a great chance for me to increase my working network and to learn experiences of other countries in both project activities and culture related issues. Besides, as it was also my first time I had been in Thailand, I really enjoyed warmth and friendliness of MI staff in particular and many other Thai people in general. Overall, it is undeniable that this course is the ideal training program that everybody may desire to participate in.

Mekong Institute has provided us with capacity building programs for the citizens of GMS region in a very effective way. The lessons and lectures have been very informational and the knowledge taught can be used practically in our everyday live as professionals. The most valuable thing that I have gained through attending one of the short courses that Mekong have offered is the networks and the people that we meet during the short course. This social network with the rest of the participants from all six countries will last very long and will be very helpful in life

Integrated Water Resources Management training for JRP, January 14-25, 2013

Based on the concept and philosophy of IWRM, my mindset and the way of my thinking have been shaped to be dynamic and systematic thoughtby applying interdisciplinary and holistic approach. During the discussion, my idea, comments and concerns are always inclusive of interdisciplinary holistic and practical thought that is why I am able to convince my team as well as senior staff and international consultants. Also, this kind of thought, I don’t just apply at my working place, but I have applied it to my daily life and my life has been shaped nicely to realize my dream. This kind of thought helps to avoid any adverse effects, it is practical and it can solve the complex issue successfully for a long-term perspective.  

All these knowledge, skills, teamwork, time management, good morality and mindset are very precious things that have shaped my professional career and life to be more active, professional and responsible; and it contributes to make better changes and toward sustainability and harmonious human-nature societies.

 Trade Event Promotion, August 22-26,2011

As Human Resource Manager of Business Sector, I worried that how I can establish and sharing my MI experience at my work. But fortunately I got one opportunity to participate in First Myanmar Job Fair 2012. One expert is calling it a "Buyers Market" which is good news for employers and employees.

At that job fair, I used website of MI sharing me for trade fair. I can learn how they organized this buyers market. I can be selected the booth near entrance for my business teams. I also used the calculation method of “Cost Of the Event / Number of Business Card (Number of Applicants) = Cost Per Applicant”. I got it from MI experience and then
I changed it number of applicants instead of number of business card.

Thanks MI for giving me effective outcomes.

Mekong Institute, though a regional body, has played great role in shaping the future of poverty eradication in Nigeria through its well articulated management courses.

I have attended many courses in Ghana, London and in Nigeria but nothing compares with the style and professional teaching methods of MEKONG INSTITUTE and the friendly nature of staff and well organised set up.

Without MI, without the opportunities of joining in those high quality workshops, there would be no way for me to discover this increasingly meaningful manner of involvement and the accompanying lifestyle.

One thousand five hundred words just cannot suffice for me to express my rich experiences in the colorful GMS. However, one last sentence must not be forgotten: Thank you, Mekong Institute; without you, my career would be different!
