Skills transfer also takes place within the client’s environment during the running of projects. We establish joint steering or project committees with the client and through these forums, skills are transferred. We exchange experiences and knowledge through project interactions and engagements.

Continuous Professional Development is also promoted with our clients through networking forums such as breakfasts, seminars, conferences and workshops. We invite clients to attend these forums free of charge to update their knowledge and skills.
