Developing talent takes time and investment. In this TV show Dario Filippone of Mangalis Management Group discusses their talent academy.
A focus on developing talent
We have created a special academy which is called the Talent Greenhouse. And this academy is the Mangalis Academy exactly for developing the talents that there are in Africa. Of course it is not as probably easy as doing this in Europe or in other continents in the world. But definitely there is lots of potential in Africa. And we started this programme exactly to enhance the potential of African human resources.
