A leadership seminar held by LOTI and the DRIMP Foundation has united young leaders in Bamenda.
On Saturday 15th February, 30 young leaders from the Northwest Region of Cameroon gathered at LOTI's office to network and gather tips on how to succeed. The seminar was an opportunity for these leaders to get to know their peers and colleagues, sparking the seeds for future collaboration and mutual encouragement.
Participants heard from two leadership experts: Messrs. Rogers Nforgweiand Fon Amos. Mr. Rogers Nforgwei is the Cambridge Representative in Cameroon, the President and Founder of NMI Education and the President and Founder of DRIMP Foundation, and Mr.Fon Amos, the General Manager of African Dream, is also involved with the Cameroon Centre for Microfinance Management and Entrepreneurship Development (CCEMMED).
They shared their experiences and offered suggestions on the qualities good leaders possess and the characteristics they should strive towards. Participants gained an understanding of the importance of being trustworthy and honest, self-confident but not arrogant, adaptable, assertive, and composed.The speakers also emphasized on identifying the root cause of challenges and problems, instead of just addressing the symptoms.
The enthusiastic participation in this seminar by both the participants and the speakers demonstrates that leadership is alive and well among young people in Bamenda.
