What a difference a smile makes!

These two young girls were amongst 400 young volunteers who were dressed in these colourul shirts, on the back of which were the words “WCIT 2008 Volunteer – May I assist you?”

They certainly lived up to these words. The young people were everywhere on all 4 days – smiling, offering their assistance and making sure that delegates, guests, speakers and the media were all looked after well.

It was so pleasant to see young people take their job so seriously. There was no-one having to direct them or tell them off for being lazy or shirking their responsibilities. I don’t know if it was the training they received or if the concept of service is so embedded in their ranks but whatever it was, everyone agreed that the best part of the event were these youngsters.

They made all 3,200 delegates from all 90 countries feel right at home – they eased the process of registration, of getting to the right hall at the right time, of directing people to meals and events, of answering any and all queries. Really amazing bunch of kids! I just had to take a picture of some of them – when I tried to, they insisted I join them so i did🙂
