Sales manager Icap Training Solutions:
The simulations really challenge the delegates, and has them engaging with their “management team”, considering macroeconomic conditions and Simulation Parameters, before making strategic and risk management projections. Delegates attending to get away from the office & have a nice lunch are in for a shock J, but all leave having nothing but praise for the knowledge gained from working on the simulation.
Market risk Analyst, Banc ABC Botswana:
“It makes one a better risk manager, covers all areas of the Bank and stimulates one’s interest in Banking. The presenter covers more than what’s on the course objectives to bring everyone to the same understanding”
