What our participants had to say

"Upon completion of the MDP, my interpretation of the workplace changed instantly. The programme is detailed and ensures that one reaches the relevant touchpoints within his or her work environment. It takes one’s leadership to another level, as well as ensures that one is knowledgeable of different departments within the organisation."

- Advise Fele

"The Senior Management Development Programme (SMDP) has turned me to be a better leader and family man. The learnings are relevant to my day-to-day life, and beyond that, my organisation has made big strides with the implementation of new ways that I managed to share with my peers since completing the programme. Speaking from a personal perspective, I am in a better state mentally and psychologically since completing the programme, and all these are important in my endeavours of becoming a better leader."

- Amos Xheko

"Having completed the USB-ED’s NMDP was definitely a life changing experience for myself. Firstly I am a much more confident individually and also learnt the art of effectively influencing people through the process of positive communication in the work place . it taught me the art of enhancing team communication thereby boosting the morale of my team members. Communication skills are important if we want to build relationships within and outside our organizations. It is one skill that not only helped me become successful in my professional life but also helps us in our personal life in dealing with people and understanding them, solving problems. As communication is not only speaking, but learning to listen as well."
