Financial advisory firm, Sycamore Consult Limited, has emphasised the need for people to invest in knowledge at both the individual and decision-making levels to enhance corporate growth.
This came out over the weekend during a corporate governance training, targeting board chairs and members of both government and private sector entities in Blantyre, organised by the firm.
Sycamore founder and Managing Director Audrey Mwala said the training was aimed at assisting members of the boards to understand their roles.
“Training on corporate governance is very important because every time one takes such trainings, they learn new thing that are aligned to emerging trends and are crucial to operations in every firm and, therefore, people should not stop investing in knowledge,” Mwala said.
One of the participants from Word Alive Ministries Hannah Mijoya said the training was helpful, especially where they learned about averting risks.
“Managers must be up to date with developments so that they can contribute effectively to the organisation. By enhancing the growth of the institution, we will be contributing effectively to the development of the nation,” Mijoya said.
