It reflects SAM’s belief in the positive impact that its participants can have on social and economic development and will open up a diverse outlook for employees to advance in their profession.

The program was designed and implemented by SAM Group Human Capital in collaboration with The Centre for Creative Leadership. 13 participants from SAM participated in effectively developing their leadership potential.
