We are proudly South African.
In 2006, we started small with an office in Cape Town. Steadily, we secured key accounts that demanded a wider footprint. By 2009, we were delivering training to all of South Africa’s nine provinces with additional offices in Johannesburg and Durban.
Since then, we have extended the delivery of our training into the rest of Africa with successful programmes being run in Botswana, Namibia, Kenya, Togo and Nigeria.
