In 2009, USB-ED and EOH Consulting (Botswana) developed a strategic alliance that would enable the provision of accredited results-oriented training and development programmes for entry level, middle, senior and executive managers and leaders, as well as board members from the public, quasi-government, private, and non-governmental sectors in Botswana.
The strategic alliance was born out of the realisation that most providers of management and leadership development programmes in Botswana did not adequately address the current and future challenges facing organisations in the country. The alliance sought to bridge the gap between the generic training offered by training providers in Botswana and the management and leadership development needs of organisations through the provision of targeted and/or customised training and development solutions.
USB-ED's open enrolment programmes in Botswana have been registered with the Botswana Qualifications Authority (BQA) and are now presented in partnership with EOH Consulting based in Gaborone, which also assists with the identification of potential clients in that country.
- For the past three years, USB-ED has been voted the top executive education provider in Botswana.
- First Thursdays knowledge-sharing breakfasts are held in Gaborone on a regular basis, and quickly gaining momentum and drumming up interest in the community.
- Since the strategic alliance have been established, hundreds of managers and leaders in Botswana have been developed by USB-ED. There has been a marked improvement in the quality of managers and leaders in organisations that choose to develop their employees through USB-ED programmes on an annual basis.
