I know that many of you have been looking forward to hearing how our second pilot went with Penny Brough from Wieden and Kennedy, the NGO Plan and the host agency Arcos – and I’m happy to say that it was fantastic. A perfect end to the year.


Penny is an Account Director, and she also found the placement challenging. One that certainly tested her boundaries, and forced her to work and live in ways she’s never had to before. That said, coming out of it she found it extremely rewarding on many levels, and made a tremendous difference to the organisation Plan and to the children involved with the many projects that Plan offers.


Check out Penny’s case study to understand more about her experience, the challenges faced, and the work and outcomes that came from her month in Brazil. https://theinternationalexchange.co.uk/our-stories/penny-brough/
