    Methods of Instruction

    We believe that the message delivery in our programmes is critical to the success of the venture. Our approach is to provide the total message in bite-size chunks in a manner that is conducive to group interaction and retained learning.


    Trained staff is a key element towards achieving World Class Logistical Performance by utilising best practice products and services. We ensure this high standard by engaging professional people as trainers, mentors and support coaches for our courses.

    To this aim, all trainers engaged by us are professionals whose experience stems from years of practical exposure in their relative industries. Their skills are represented in Logistics, Supply-Chain Management, Human Resources and Health & Safety Management.

    The suitability of our facilitators is based on their work history, previous experience and people skills. We pride ourselves in being able to walk the walk and talk the talk in the Supply-Chain environment. These facets provide a unique combination in their approach to People Development.
