CCL has long believed leadership is a lever to address important challenges. With the launch of its new Ethiopian Office in May, CCL is more accessible to the leaders who will impact pressing issues across Africa.
Located in Addis Ababa, home to both the African Union and the United Nations, CCL’s new office enjoys a strategic position for advancing the understanding, practice and development of leadership across the continent.
“CCL has been in Africa for many years, allowing us to grasp the special nature of this region’s cultures and aspirations,” says Rudi Plettinx, vice president and managing director, CCL-Europe, the Middle East and Africa (EMEA). “However, this is CCL’s first base in Africa, a major step to better serving leaders throughout the region. This office will help us meet the rising demand for African leadership development and we look forward to helping Africa embrace its leadership potential.”
“We believe CCL’s Addis Ababa office will play a pivotal role in helping Africans hone their leadership skills at every level of society,” adds Plettinx. “It will act as a base for CCL’s Leadership Beyond Boundaries (LBB) work: an initiative launched in 2006 to democratize leadership development and unlock human potential in an affordable and accessible way.”
