Abeceder to represent CIPD in West Africa - 18-08-2010

News that Abeceder has been selected to represent the Chartered Institute of Personnel and Development (CIPD) in West Africa has been covered by the Yorkshire Post.

Peter Edwards, of the Yorkshire Post described the contract win as a two year African adventure, that is woth and estimated £50,000 a year to the company.

The contract starts with a series of open courses in the African mega city Lagos on the Atlantic coast in September 2010.

In an interview with Peter Edwards Abeceder managing director Michael Millward described working with the Institute in this way is a great vote of confidence in Abeceder from our professional body."

Asked to comment on working in Nigeria Mr Millward explained that Abeceder has been operating in Nigeria
for two years with a partner company Doheney Services, providing training courses in management, sales to businesses and public sector organisations.

It is 29 years since Mr Millward started working in HR and during that time he has worked in a number of countries with 'reputations' but he explained that Nigeria was quite different to the image typically associated with it by Westerners.

He told Peter Edwards that he had found a country of friendly hard-working people who are passionate about building Nigeria but who are also very aware of the issues facing the country.

Other companies who wanted to do business in Nigeria should remember that like in many parts of the world, business in Nigeria is relationship based and best done face to face, he explained. We have found that decisions are made quickly once the relationship has been built.

Asked about security, Mr Millward explained that it has not been an issue; in the evenings I have enjoyed visits to the cinema, and some very good restaurants. The trick is to abide by the rules, just as you would in any other country, even the UK."

Andrew Spencer, head of CIPD Training said:

"This initiative with Abeceder enables us to spread the word of best practice in management and people development, collaborating with an organisation with vast experience of operating in this part of the world."
