KPMG, Group Harp on Entrepreneurial Development
The Association of International School Educators (AISEN), and KPMG, a professional services firm, have stressed the need for the inclusion of entrepreneurial studies in schools.
They also called on educational institutions to be socially responsible. This call was made at the KPMG sponsored maiden edition of the AISEN Speaker series held in Lagos recently. The Head of Sales and Marketing at KPMG Nigeria, Mrs. Marie-Therese Phido expressed the need for organisations to invest in education in order to grow the economy.
She said: “In KPMG, commitment to our community is one of our core values, we believe now is the time to look forward and grow the sustainable foundation for sustainable development in our country. Entrepreneurship is key to development, and it is one of the things we value also in our organisation.”
In her inaugural speech, the President of AISEN, Mrs. Ekua Abudu, said the primary objective of the association is to foster understanding and mutual support between international schools by ensuring that they are of global quality.
Also, the Global Head of Corporate Citizenship at KPMG, Lord Michael Hastings, noted that teaching is not really about the information passed but about the knowledge impacted.
