November 2021November 2021 in London CMEUK delivered a comprehensive two-week course covering Financial Management, Planning, Budgeting, Public Private Partnership (PPP) and International Public Sector Accounting Standards (IPSAS).
The course which had been rescheduled from 2020 due to Covid lockdown was held as soon as the Southern African Countries were removed from the UK’s Covid red list, in attendance were officials from the Government of Botswana. It was wonderful to get back into formal in class training after nearly 2 years of shut down, albeit only for a short period.
On our courses, we ensure our delegates have a most uplifting and memorable time, hence, to crown it all we always include a group tour of interesting places/attractions in London.
Here we are in 2022 and look forward to being of continued service to the public sector in Africa by way of training and provision of management consultancies.
