Enterprises UP: Developing original thinkers in Africa

Posted on December 11, 2018

Mozambique energy company Electricidade de Moçambique (EDM) attended a Leadership Programme for Directors at Enterprises University of Pretoria (Enterprises UP), led by Prof Ann de Boer, a renowned specialist in Whole Brain® thinking and management. The 14-day programme kicked off with a five-day session hosted in Pretoria and was tailored to the specific needs of EDM, with learning structured specifically for their delegation of directors.

The interactive programme offered delegates the opportunity to exercise their thinking-on-demand skills, enabling them to capitalise not only on their preferred ways of thinking, but also tapping into the thought processes of others.

“I believe that as leaders, the decisions that we take today will affect us tomorrow,” said Irvin Bogopa, Enterprises UP Executive Manager: Stakeholder Relations, in his welcome address to the international delegation. “Your presence here signifies the direction that you wish to take for yourselves and for the future of your organisation.”

Fabio Cumbe, Director of the EDM Academy, said the delegation was taking part in the programme “as part of a larger strategic initiative to assist our leaders in the effective management of the organisation. The programme itself carries the appropriate tools to help us in our initiatives towards better management.”

Deon Herbst, CEO of Enterprises UP who paid the delegation a special visit, said: “If we can empower you as leaders, we empower many others in your company, country and beyond. With some of South Africa’s most acclaimed thought-leaders on our teams of course leaders and research specialists, we are excited to engage with you in groundbreaking knowledge transfer.”

The benefits of this course will have lasting impact, allowing delegates to acquire valuable tools for the facilitation of change and personal growth.
