"I joined the organization in May as a Finance manager. Being new to management, I wanted a course that bring me up to speed mostly in areas to do with People management and management of a team. I signed up for two interesting topics namely Leading people and Team Management which have tremendously helped me in my day-to-day work. These courses have helped me create trust with my direct reports and have taught me how to always leverage on my networks. I encourage you to take up a course."

“I enrolled in HMM to build my skills in leadership and management courses. Every week I dedicated two hours of my time for this assignment. One skill that I needed in my role at the association is communication skills……, to make the association more visible through a bigger team, improve advocacy, leadership, and governance among the board members. So, to this point, I needed communication skills more as a leader and this has worked for me. I can clearly define my audience, negotiate the objective, and develop a win-win goal in the objective. For my colleagues who are juggling through this course because of time, I would encourage you to develop the passion for this, create time and the rest will fall in place.”

“I signed up for the HMM course because, for some time, I had a desire to find some courses in management and soft skills, but I didn’t know where to look for a training opportunity that could match that desire. Then, a few months after I joined Amref, I was informed about this course. It immediately seemed like a good fit because I could follow it remotely through the online platform. I swiftly and happily signed up. I didn’t find a balance right away, and I have had my ups and downs. Sometimes I studied, and others I forgot because the work schedule was quite busy, but my method is to set aside time for study a week or two in advance before the few hours I have planned to study.”

“I joined the HMM because I wanted to pick up with the knowledge, skills, and trends in my profession. I found this to be an opportunity for me to improve my performance and the quality of work I render to the organization. I can attest that taking these courses is very good because I have improved my work. I can apply what I have learnt practically. The best thing about the course is that it is very flexible and doesn’t require time off work. Studies are temporary, but the outcome is helpful for the long-term well-being of your career.”
