“We seek to push our participants to innovate with 2 group exercises. On the 4th day, we will see how PPP works in practice when we visit one of Africa’s largest PPPs, caleed, The Gautrain Project, to learn how they structure the project, its problems faced and the current situation,” Zaidin ended.

This master class will appeal to both the public and private sectors.

In the public sector, this masterclass will benefit officials from ministries of:
1. Finance, including PPP units
2. Transport
3. Power
4. Health

In the private sector, this course will benefit:

We need to understand the critical success factors of PPPs, how concepts translate into real progress, anticipate draining inhibitors, find effective solutions, learn from tried and tested best practices and most importantly, move beyond them and explore the avenues to innovate.”
