“I feel fortunate to have been part of this week surrounded by change-makers from all over Africa, knowledge is power and so often hearing a first-hand account of things can broaden your mind more than you ever imagined.”
“The sessions on Positive Institutional Work, Adaptive Change and Adaptive Leadership were of exceptional relevance to the work which is done in our organisation, and having a framework within which to envisage and position this work is very helpful, and will contribute significantly to my ability to convey the nature of our work and also to internally conceptualise it.”
"I am eternally grateful to the Bertha Centre for the opportunity to have been part of this amazing course. I was needing some understanding and guidance as a way forward for myself and my organisation. I felt that this was the ideal course for me to gain clarity."
