The training, according to the Bank was also aimed at showing appreciation to its customers.
The seminar is an element of the Fidelity Business Academy which was established by Fidelity Bank Limited in collaboration with the International Finance Corporation (IFC) and Rainbow Consult to equip SME clients of the Bank with training workshops and networking events.
According to the Managing Director of Fidelity Bank, Mr. Jim Baiden, the Bank believes in empowering its customers to maximize the growth of their businesses “we want to go beyond providing financial assistance to building the capacity of our SME clients through formalized training.”
“Workshops such as this bring together businessmen and women from different backgrounds to meet and share ideas as well as benefit from resource persons,” he adds.
The divisional Director for Retail at Fidelity Bank, Mr. Julian Opuni noted that they want the relationship between Fidelity Bank and its clients to be a mutually beneficial one, where clients bank with Fidelity and Fidelity in turn impact their businesses to grow.
