Happy Heroes Day


A hero is someone who acts selflessly, without thinking of rewards. Someone who is willing to put themselves at risk for the sake of someone else or a higher cause.


As Zimbabwe continues to enjoy peace and sovereignty, National Heroes Day provide us with a chance to reflect on, and acknowledge the work and sacrifices of our pioneers, great leaders , Heroes and Heroine who have built our beloved country and set the foundation for a new social order. Our heroes and heroines all had great belief in and love for their country. They had a vision for Zimbabwe and they were determined to make it a reality even if it meant sacrificing their lives.


National Heroes Day is a commemoration of acts of heroism, patriotism, dedication, sacrifice and service that have shaped and laid the basis for the present. Many of these acts of heroism and patriotism continue to be carried out every day by ordinary Zimbabweans. Today, we need new heroes who will champion the economic sovereignty of Zimbabwe. We need additional heroes who will stand up against corruption in politics and public life. We need new heroes who will champion the education and empowerment of all our people.


During this period, we take inspiration from sacrifices of fallen and living heroes. We learn from their struggles and find desire and strength and will to triumph over the many challenges and obstacles confronting us today.


We recognize, on this day those who have taken up the mantle of our Heroes and Heroines and made significant contributions to the social, economic, political and spiritual development of our nation and the developing world. As we reflect on what has been achieved, let us become heroes for a new vision for Zimbabwe.


Let us pursue that vision with faith, optimism and a sense of purpose. Let us use our troubled past as a foundation of a prosperous future. Let us use our differences to build a united Zimbabwe for, in diversity we find strength and desire to remain standing.


We join all Zimbabweans in celebrating this Great day. We join all Zimbabweans to pay tribute and gratitude to our fallen and living heroes.


Thank you.

Soft Skills Training

Soft skills are personal attributes that enhance an individual’s interactions, job performance and career prospects. To get, and keep, a job you typically need a repertoire of technical skills. In today's demanding workplace, your company is requiring more from candidates than knowledge and experience. While these "hard skills" can make a good impression and prompt you to invite a candidate for an interview, they won't necessarily close the deal. However, combine them with the right "soft skills" and you just might extend a job offer.

The importance of these soft skills is often undervalued, and there is far less training provided for them than hard skills. For some reason, organizations seem to expect people know how to behave on the job. They tend to assume that everyone knows and understands the importance of being on time, taking initiative, being friendly, and producing high quality work.

Assuming that soft skills are universal leads to much frustration, that's why it's so important to focus as much on soft skills training and development as you do on traditional hard skills.

Report Writing

Duration: 1-Day

Course Overview

Reports play an important part in the life of many professional people: they are a link between writer, colleagues and clients worldwide. Reading and writing reports occupies a considerable proportion of working time, particularly for senior staff. Yet many professionals (including those in engineering and technology) lack confidence in their report-writing skills, and feel that their credibility suffers because their reports are not a fair reflection of their expertise.

This one-day course analyses report preparation from the earliest stages of identifying the reader and the objectives to the effective presentation of the complete document. It is a highly practical course, giving delegates the opportunity to analyse technical writing in terms of style and grammar and to assess their own and their company’s policy for the revision and checking of documents before they are issued. Methods of structuring report material are suggested and practiced.

Course objectives

  • Identifying the readership and the report objectives
  • Writing clearly and unambiguously
  • Structuring the data to achieve maximum impact
  • Revising and thoroughly checking the document
  • Presenting the report effectively, thus achieving reader goodwill
