African Microfinance Senior Management Retreat


Microfinance institutions are only as strong as the collective competencies of members of their management teams. Board Directors, CEOs and Executive Management teams need to continuously re-tool and adjust to changes, especially the macroeconomic changes that emerged post COVID lockdown. We must build resilient institutions that identify and harness opportunities and deliver value to all stakeholders in the short run and long run. What are the overarching changes in the industry that require strategic changes in the management of MFBs? How do you lead your team to develop strategic plans that consistently deliver corporate objectives?
How can productivity be improved across all cadres of staff? How do you position for viable long-term funding? Which are the more efficient routes to digitalization? How does your performance compare against those of peer-MFIs? How do you as a leader stay continuously energized, motivated, and enthusiastic about work? This retreat is designed to answer these questions and more for MFB Board Members, CEOs, and Senior Managers.
