The WDS Africa OPEN DAY went down at Waridi Paradise on Wednesday 10th December, 2014. Guests were able to actively participate in the 5 strategies for their 2015 Career Game Plan. They learnt how to be proactive, assertive, purposed and clear. In attendance were employees and business people.

Multinationals, Banks, Telcos, FMCG, IT, NGO sectors were well represented. The networking after the event was phenomenal – great conversations blended with the delicious bhajias, samosas, fruits, juice and the mandatory caffeine shot from Kenyan tea and coffee.

Did we mention the conversation?! Guests stayed longer than even they anticipated. To each of you who made it, may your journey be blessed. And we look forward to connecting with you, at your right time.
