The Mango training approach is highly practical, participatory and often fun!
We focus on real issues and help participants to use the tools covered, rather than just discuss them. We work especially hard to explain and take the mystery out of financial concepts to overcome the fear of finance.
“Mango training really does take the fear out of finance!”
We train in small groups to meet the needs of individual participants and use a variety of learning methods to stimulate interest and meet different learning styles. Participatory techniques include interactive presentations, practical problem-solving activities, case studies and quizzes.
Courses are supported by extensive materials for participants to take away and apply after the course, including a detailed course manual. We also offer a free follow-up service by email or phone to all Mango trainees.
