Managers play a critical role in the success of any organisation. Aside from overseeing the day-to-day operations, they take part in strategic conversions that ensure that their teams are well aligned towards the organisation’s vision, goals, and objectives. They also play a critical role in building and managing relationships with employees, customers, suppliers, and other stakeholders, which helps to create a supportive and productive environment for growth.
In this conversation, our guest speakers will take a deep dive into this topic as we engage in honest and open conversations around leadership, management, and workforce development in supporting the growth and development of Africa.
