Centre for African Business Education (CABE) have been busy crossing international waters to provide practical business education, knowledge exchange and opportunity creation for individuals and businesses in Africa as well foreign businesses entering African markets.
On the 13th of October 2016, the Deputy British High Commissioner’s residence in Ikoyi, Lagos played host to CABE who officially launched the programmes and ‘creating opportunities’ campaign in Nigeria along with their Nigeria partners, Bromley Consultants Ltd, who have a footprint across all 36 states of the Federation. Mr Kevin Korgba, a Director and co-founder of CABE UK who made the introductions at the launch says, “It is always a thing of pride when you receive such positive feedback about your offerings from very knowledgeable professionals and executives, particularly in Nigeria and we look forward to engaging with as many of them as possible going forward.”
Mr Taye Sogbesan, COO of Bromley Consultants, thanked CABE for acting in such a timely manner to bring their offerings to Nigeria given the current economic situation. This was followed by the main presentation of the evening delivered by CABE Director & co-founder, Mrs Bolaji Sofoluwe.
At CABE we offer many different Global Business Management and African Business Management (ABM) courses, all UK accredited and quite a number of businesses in Abuja have already benefited from our programmes including our very popular Global Management Weeks which see participants travel to one of our global destinations to gain a practical experience and exchange knowledge with their peers in other markets. The Global Management Weeks help to foster what we call “World Practice”, which means adopting the best practice that works in the context of your cultural and market reality. All participants on our programmes have been exceptionally impressed with the value CABE has added. Farida Zuhair of Glisten International Academy, Abuja said of her experience of our Global management Week: “The 5- day Management Week in the UK was a life changing experience for me and I can’t wait to go back and implement all that I have learnt in my organisation.”
Mrs Nel van Zanten, CABE Centre Director concluded, “Africa has so much to offer and we truly feel that our role at CABE Global is to bridge the gap between the continents and to impart shared knowledge, both of which are extremely worthwhile aspirations. We find lots of employers and employees gain a more practical and hands-on understanding, international business experience and for many people it can make them more employable by foreign companies when hiring for African markets. Whether in Agri-Business or Project Finance, CABE is able to prepare you to take full advantage of the many opportunities out there, locally and globally.”
