Global Give Back 2015 - Power & Water dishes up Greek food at Hope Lodge!

Power & Water ECLPs come together for the 2015 Global Give BackECLP Andrew Collier from Power & Water (P&W) led a group of ECLPs from P&W on a community service activity at Hope Lodge in Philadelphia. Hope Lodge provides cancer patients and their family members a place to stay while undergoing cancer treatment in the Philadelphia area. The group cooked a Greek-themed dinner for approximately 70 guests at Hope Lodge. The group was met by an incredibly enthusiastic group who were eager to share powerful stories about different trials and tribulation from patients at the lodge. At one point, one gentleman came up to an ECLP during the night to express his gratitude for their service – his wife was undergoing cancer treatment and the gentleman himself professed that he was a terrible cook, so not only were they able to take his mind off of cooking, but they were also able to give him more time to take care of his wife.

Another said “rubbish” to all of the competitive spirt and went for a dive (for charity, of course).

From Lesotho, South Africa - GE ECLP Global Give Back

Global Give Back is an annual initiative within GEs Experienced Commercial Leadership Program that encourages program participants (ECLPs) to give back to their communities through monetary donations, and by volunteering their time to causes they believe in. Check out some interesting volunteer stories:


Tim Furey, Allison Hannon, and David Rottblatt visited the Hamali village in Lesotho in April, 2015. The village is located in the north-western part of the country, deep in a valley where most people support themselves with local agricultural trade and family farming. During this visit, the group worked with a local family to chop wood for cooking and heating, helped prepare food, and worked with local children. Check out some of the pictures from their visit!



ALUMNI HIGHLIGHT: Sales Process Simplification in India

A GE India strategic initiative - ECLP India Alum recognized in leading the way

The Business Problem:

GE India Commercial team recognized a critical need for Sales Process Simplification (SPS) across its industrial businesses, from Power & Water to Lighting & Healthcare. But there were a lack of central commercial resources to execute a solution for such a wide-scope business project.

ECLP India Alum: 

The ECLP India Alum team were reached out to for this business need & immediately stepped up to commit to the GE India Commercial Executive Council to lead this project. And the entire India ECLP Alum , in turn, backed them. As a result, a significant part of the India Alum worked tirelessly, aside from their day jobs, to deliver impact by supporting this key strategic initiative. The project benefitted immensely from the strong commercial acumen within the ECLP Alum community, at a critical time when the project seemed headed for delay.

Featured ECLP Alumni: Elizabeth Kurfess ... thoughts on Sponsorship

Elizabeth Kurfess, Director of Strategic Consumer Partnerships (GE Ventures)I have multiple supporters, some that I actively cultivated and some that developed more naturally. I think of them as my Board of Directors … they help me guide my strategic direction with an objective view as to what is best at a macro level. Sometimes they present opportunities to me because they know me, my strengths, my development needs, and my passions. And they give me feedback … positive and negative.

“I guess I believe in ‘supportership’ more than ‘sponsorship’…”

The term sponsorship does not really resonate with me, so I looked up the definition: “one who assumes responsibility for another person or a group during a period of instruction, apprenticeship, or probation.” I personally believe in taking responsibility for one’s self, but I know and appreciate that I have obtained some of my best roles (including the one I am currently in) due to my network of supporters.
