Event: Our young SBA ambassadors shined at Salon Promote!

Last February, the Serge Betsen Academy took proudly part in the 7th edition of the Salon Promote in Yaoundé further to an invitation by Sharon Ganney and the British High Commission in Cameroon.

Five talented young people from our SBA centres in Bangangté and Bafia took part in the Salon to network and meet different companies established in Cameroon. Our champions were accompanied by Odile Prevot, our CEO who attended the Salon during the three days and by Djibril, Manager of the Bangangté Centre. We would like to congratulate Bienvenu, Fanny, Sorelle, Baudelaire and Gilles on representing our charity during the Salon and on managing to introduce themselves to companies with such professionalism. They took part in a fruitful working session with the British High Commission in Cameroon and were then very enthusiastic to meet dynamic companies to learn more about their activities. They notably had the chance to discuss with our friends from GreenHouse Ventures and our sponsor Victoria Oil and Gas Plc based in Douala. We hope that they built interesting connections for their future career.

Odile Prevot also delivered a speech whose topic was: “Rugby for education: from street idling to community champions”. She was accompanied by Fanny, who shared her experience as a Serge Betsen Academy student and gave details about the impact of our actions on her education and her life in general.

This Salon was a great opportunity for our five SBA ambassadors to develop their business network and for our charity to gain some visibility. We are proud of what they have achieved so far and we wish them all the best in their professional careers! And it seems that our team of superstars had great fun as you can see from their video 😉 :
