Unleashing Africa’s Growth Through Youth
Peter Mutuku, Nairobi, Kenya
Africa is undergoing rapid transformation as it gets poised for remarkable economic growth. And the key to unleash the continent’s potential is its talented youth. In the Knowledge Economy it is crucial that Africa’s youth are empowered to be a part of nation building. Centum Learning is doing just that - equipping Africa’s key resource to excel in the race towards development.
Peter Mutuku, Territory Manager for Airtel in Nairobi knew that sheer hard work was not enough for success. He needed to be organized and thoroughly updated about the products he sold. Centum Learning’s training programme proved a boon.
Peter received training from Centum Learning and he is a changed individual today. His performance has peaked on the job, and he says, "The role-specific training provided by Centum Learning along with on-the-job coaching that I received helped tremendously. I have learnt how to demarcate territories, understood what a low cut is and how to get in new distributors, among other things. Today, I participate in discussions on ROI with my current and prospective channel sales partners more confidently".
He adds that Centum Learning should continue with these programmes across the company as the training and coaching would greatly support new candidates, who join as Territory Sales Managers.
Centum Learning through its well-researched and structured training programme has not only helped Peter enhance existing skills but also provided him with new skill-sets that will help this youngster create a brighter and successful future.
"Now I am able to participate in business discussions with my current and prospective channel sales partners more confidently"
