WEST AFRICA – The African Management Institute (AMI), has launched a new series of francophone learning programmes to support the growth of small enterprises and provide practical business skills development in Senegal and across francophone West Africa.
AMI’s launch event was held in Dakar, Senegal in mid-March, with over 50 business leaders, partners and clients in attendance.
The pan-African organisation delivers practical growth and resilience programmes for small and micro businesses, workplace learning for corporates and mid-sized organisations, and programmes to help youth navigate the future workforce and the emerging gig economy.
The institute offers a six-month business growth programme modelled on AMI’s popular Grow Your Business programme, which has already reached thousands of businesses across English-speaking African countries.
It is designed for businesses that have generated 18 000 000 XOF – 300 000 000 XOF (US$30,165 – US$502744) in revenue in at least one of the last two years.
“Our practical learning programmes delivered in French, combined with our regional presence in francophone West Africa, solidify our long-standing commitment to French-speaking businesses, entrepreneurs and partners,” said Rebecca Harrison, AMI’s CEO and Co-founder.
Programme Expansion supports business leaders and teams to implement core business practices that are proven to drive growth.
AMI will also be offering its flagship workplace learning programmes in French for corporate and impact business clients.
These programmes support managers, leaders, and emerging young professionals to strengthen their skills and ability to be successful in their jobs while contributing to the success of the businesses they work for.
AMI has worked with a range of businesses and organisations to support entrepreneurs and managers build and grow their businesses across Africa, including Uber, Nestle, among others.
Known for its Africa-built and Africa-focused virtual and in-person learning model, AMI has delivered training to over 35,000 individuals in 39 countries across the continent.
Supported by AMI’s proprietary learning platform and mobile apps, AMI delivers learning in French, Arabic, English, Kiswahili, and Kinyarwanda.
AMI’s work in Francophone West Africa builds on the company’s continental profile with over 70 staff across seven African countries.
