What our graduates say...
I have been part of AmCham for many years and their initiatives, networking opportunities and leadership development programmes provided have been invaluable for Venga and for myself. The Emerging Leaders programme in particular, has been a highlight for me.
Such a terrific opportunity to network, connect, learn and develop amongst like-minded people, yet very diverse skillsets, backgrounds and sectors. I would absolutely recommend participating in the American Chamber Emerging Leaders Programme.
The Emerging Leaders programme exceeded my expectations in terms of networking, collaboration and quality of masterclasses. Highly recommended for anyone looking to improve their leadership skills and boost their network.
