MDI ALUMNI 2011
Being an alumni of the Management Development Institute (MDI) programme has been of great significance in my career to date. From the outset it opened many doors. Although I am an accountant, I realised I had a passion for working with the community. This prompted me to look into avenues for further studies and I came to the conclusion that MDI was the perfect match for my objectives.
My time at the programme was a period of true advancement of my knowledge especially in the field of health, which I had never been exposed to before. It really gave me foundation skills in the practise of public health.
After noticing the needs of my community, I started medical camps. I am not a medic but I have been able to supervise a team that has brought great change in the community. After graduating, I had a successful transition into a health-related profession. Working as a Programme Manager, I’ve been able to effectively combine all the skills that I gained during my studies at the Management Development Institute.
MDI has equipped me with leadership skills that I did not have before, and which I now use to run the programme that I work with. It gave me skills on how to deal with problematic issues and the transformation is evident.
MDI develops participants, equips them with a range of skills and opens up new opportunities. It is definitely worthwhile. I am proud to have attended the programme and to be part of such an impressive family of MDI alumni.
