I am grateful...

I am grateful every time a Vice Chancellor accepts to adopt the principles of my book - The Graduate Code as a course in their university for all students.

Those were the words of Prof B.M. Koroma, the in-coming Vice Chancellor of Njala University Sierraleone.

My career mission is to secure and enhance the lives and career of young Africans…

Let's go!!!!

Move from 'chance' to 'stance' if you want to get what you need.....

Last month, I delivered an international training on resource mobilisation and international funding to professionals from over 15 African countries.

Over 80% of students or professionals who have applied for funding whether scholarships or grants do it by 'chance'. The friend of your brother's uncle's niece forwarded it to you 🤣🤣

Those who win scholarships or grants regularly do not wait for others to forward opportunities to them, they take a 'stance' and get it themselves.

They are the ones who forward opportunities to others after applying for them. As long as they don’t run a forwarding agency….

Be intentional and track opportunities......it's why you have that Google app on your amazing mobile phone........

This month, decide to apply for at least two funding opportunities. Just start.

Have a lovely new month 😊😊

I am delighted for another milestone..... just graduated our first cohort of certified #career mentors under our local content initiative ….

After delivering five cohorts of the UK Certified International Career Coaching Programme (ICCP) for #students and #professionals, we launched the Career Enhancement and Resilience Training Program (CERT) for mentors.

A ten days comprehensive and intensive program with eight #practical and life transforming modules.

About 150 career mentors just completed the program from 12 African countries.

What is better than 'impact'? It is #sustainable impact.

One will chase a thousand and two, ten thousand. What of 150? Do the maths.....

For feedback from those who just completed this program see here - https://lnkd.in/e5vTiPnW 😊😊😊

Watch out for the re-launch of our Flexylearn Training and Career support mobile app…..
