The training ‘personal and professional development’ which is offered to graduates of Friends for Life every year, was this year even more interesting than other years. Two inspiring powerful Kenyan ladies took the time to share their experiences and knowledge with the graduates during the job coaching training. Rose Musau, CEO of recruitment agency ‘Preferred Personnel Africa’, gave very valuable tips about how to build up your CV, how to present yourself well during interviews, the importance of correct use of the English language and using your own unique skills and capacities to be unique. HR manager of Phillips Kenya, Daisy Ogutu, gave an interesting presentation about the importance of building your own brand and developing confidence. She answered numerous of questions of the graduates about subjects such as their CV’s and appropriate behavior on the work floor once you have managed to get a job.

The training was a huge succes due to the enthusiasm of the graduates, the trainers but above all the inspiring guest speakers! We would like to thank Rose and Daisy for their contributions to this training.
