Breaking through the growth ceiling
WHY ARE WE UNIQUE?
GBSH Business Acceleration Academy combines three sources of value for companies: corporate training, an information platform, and core capability development.”
GBSH Business Acceleration Academy has developed several sets of training courses for both local companies and multinational companies. The courses are designed specifically to address the unique challenges that those companies face and to provide the capabilities that they need.
GBSH has partnered with various external institutions to provide practical training courses, incorporating the firm’s extensive expertise on strategy and real project experience with the partners’ topic expertise.
The training courses are based on real business-project experience, not abstract theories: course content includes a large number of actual case studies, which makes the training more practical for companies.
Because GBSH has been operating in Africa for years, collaborating with businesses from all industries, course materials are truly Africa specific: they are based on GBSH’s in-depth understanding of the business environment in Africa and the globe instead of blindly referring to benchmarks from other parts of the world.
GBSH Business Acceleration Academy offers additional services, such as business-insight sharing and capability building, which are closely linked with strategy development and have a strong practical focus.
The academy leverages GBSH’s extensive global resources: a dedicated team from the firm’s Enablement Training Centers, a large and experienced group of lecturers, proprietary tools and research centers, an extensive case database, and resources from numerous partners—all of which help to expand the coverage and depth of the services provided by the academy.
GBSH Academy uses leading research tactics in new Psychology that includes research of brain chemicals, cellintelligence, neuro science and quantum physics.
