A Kenyan firm has scooped two prestigious awards at the recent international Association of Business Psychology conference in UK.
Lantern Training, based in Nairobi, is one of Kenyan’s leading people development and training firms, and its work with regional clients in the areas of people development and business psychology has seen it beating nominations from across the world to win a project award for ‘Excellence in Diversity, Equality and Inclusion’, and the Association’s coveted ‘Chairman’s Award’.
Lucy Brewster, Managing Director at Lantern Training said: “We are thrilled to be recognised globally for the work we do here in Kenya to develop skills, bring teams together and to help people work more cohesively”.
“Kenya’s economy continues to grow rapidly. Investing in people is rising up the corporate agenda, becoming an increasingly high priority for many organisations in the region.”
Lantern’s programmes in the field of learning and development, working across East Africa with many international NGOs and commercial organisations, has put Kenya firmly on the map for innovation in the use of psychometric profiling, leadership, communications, and soft skills training.
“Understanding other people is not always straightforward” continues Ms Brewster, “our role is to help companies build those soft skills that enable management, team leaders, staff and in some cases, owners, work together more effectively through understanding their innate strengths and valuing the contributions that others bring.”
With more than 25 years’ experience in its field, the company is helping build the skills that today’s workforce needs to develop professional, productive, trusting and enduring relationships with customers, managers, peers, teams, and stakeholders.
