Bill heads abroad to train African civil servants

14 August 2009

Bill spent two weeks in Dubai in August running training courses on behalf of Global Training Consulting Ltd. Trainees included officials from several Nigerian federal government ministries and parastatals (agencies).

Bill covered a range of subjects on his courses included comparative legislative processes, and contract and project management.

The Dubai trip followed on from a ten day visit to Tanzania in July to run similar courses with officials from the power and water sector.

Commenting on the Dubai trip Bill said "This was my first visit to the United Arab Emirates and it was fascinating to see Dubai City after hearing so much about it. Dubai has been badly hit by the downturn and locals complained that things were very quiet. But my impression is that there is still considerable wealth and opportunity in Dubai, if the activity in the shopping malls and on the highways is anything to go by. The delegates certainly enjoyed the location, despite the heat - it was in the mid-40's Centigrade most of the time I was away."
