When Vivian teamed up with the EMCS Academy for our further training requirements, it was a perfect match. The courses were helpful not just for our work but also for our personal lives and I definitely feel generally more empowered after attending some of the courses that were offered to us and which EMCS took care to tailor and fine-tune according to our requirements.

EMCS Academy comes highly recommended for the team’s outstanding guidance in creating a programme that catered for the needs of our employees. As a start, prior to the drawing up of the training programme, various meetings were set up with the management team, with the aim of understanding the training needs of the Company as well as those of the employees. The courses delivered did, not only contain the normal theory one needs to know, but a lot of practical examples. This helped the staff remain focused and attentive on the subject being discussed.
