Johannes Kinfu (Prof.)

Director, Training & Development Department, MIDROC Investment Group

I had the opportunity to commission Billene Seyoum twice in fiscal year 2015/16 for MIDROC Ethiopia Conference and Seminar on “Promoting Women’s Leadership”, which were organized for the Investment Group Companies’ CEOs and Middle Level Management.

On both occasions, she was highly professional in her approach and conduct. She prepared well cohesive, substantive and relevant material and delivered it in a very effective manner, while fully and actively engaging participants. A large majority of the participants of both training programs found her to be very highly effective in her facilitation. The content of the presentations were also found to be very satisfactory. Billene has demonstrated excellent skills, knowledge and commitment as a training facilitator not only on gender issues, but in “leadership development” in general. It is, therefore, with utmost confidence that I recommend her for any similar engagement in any organizational setting.
