ABOUT AFRICULTURE GBC
Let's cause a ripple together...
The world is changing at a pace that has never been seen before. Eric Allison, the founder of the revolutionary Uber taxi service stated:
"World trade means competition from anywhere; advancing technology encourages cross-industry competition. Consequently, strategic planning must consider who our future competitors will be, not only who is here today."
"Our vision for sub-Saharan Africa is to promote global competitiveness and add tremendous value to the Human Development Index through the institution of experiential learning and development; a productivity culture; and technology literacy by 2025."
- Stephanie Pius
Africa receives less than 7% of global FDI.
Nigeria ranks amongst the lowest countries on the Human Development Index and Global Competitiveness Index. Africa also contributes less than 1% to the global creative economy. The USA’s creative economy accounts for about 14% of employment, about 10% of GDP, and over $700 billion in revenue as of 2017.
Our vision at Africulture GBC is to promote global competitiveness by giving business owners and professionals the tools to project themselves at their personal and professional best.
Promoting excellence is our passion. Positioning and branding your dream life, career or business is our job.
Our Mission at Africulture GBC is:
•To inspire Africa to a global business culture through high impact community learning and development programs.
•To evolve the way Africa learns by seamlessly integrating our core values, purpose and philosophies into our experiential learning products.
•To make knowledge and skills acquisition more accessible; thus creating opportunities and opening up more possibilities for our accelerated learning and development communities.
•To establish for our customers, compelling human development programs and projects in accordance with the highest professional standards.
"If you're not making mistakes, you're not taking risks, and that means you're not going anywhere. The key is to make mistakes faster than the competition, so you have more changes to learn and win."
-- John W. Holt, Jr., Xochi manufacturing
