I have been recently in a week workshop in Dakar (Senegal). More than 30 HR Professionals from different West Africa countries were joining to discuss about Personnel Administration, Absence Management and Payroll Integration.

 

It has been really interesting to learn how such different countries (Senegal, Chad, Ghana, Niger, Mali, Mauritania and Sierra Leona) are having so many similarities while managing internal
processes and producing HR reports.

After that week, I travelled to the South-East of the country (close to Guinea-Conakry border) to visit the Bassari Country. This region has been declared as World Heritage site by UNESCO. It has been a great opportunity to know beautiful natural places and charming people!

    The workshop (speech + presentation) was run in two simultaneous languages: English and French, as there were English-speaking countries (Ghana, Kenya & Sierra Leone) as well as French countries (Senegal, Mali, Chad, Mauritania, Niger and DR Congo).
    I was leading some of the French-speaking sessions and supporting French-English participants’ translation during the discussions.
