About Us

Centre for Economic and Leadership Development (CELD) is a leading human capacity, gender empowerment and development-based organisation that sees itself as a catalyst and thought leader in developing the theory and practice of leadership, social, educational and economic empowerment particularly in Africa, and also the developing countries of the Middle East and Asia. As an organisation currently in special consultative status with the United Nations Economic and Social Council (UN ECOSOC) since 2012, we strive to advance our partnership with public and private sector organisations at different stages to develop, refine and effectively execute strategies that deliver superior corporate/institutional excellence. We empower the men and women folk for peak performance.

One of the ways we achieve this is through our bespoke and open trainings, specialised gender-based conferences, and other capacity building programmes. We strive to improve the public and private sector players’ ability to meet the challenges of a changing world and communicate effectively with their constituents and stakeholders.

Some of our flagship programs include

  • Management and Organizational Leadership Trainings: These training programs are aimed at business professionals, organizational leaders and managers alike so they can optimally maintain their company’s value proposition, increase market share and remain competitive. Our programs cover everything from business models to decision making techniques to corporate value creation. We also organize bespoke practical training sessions tailor made to the needs of teams, and organizations.
  • The women Leadership Development Training Program: This program is targeted at high-potential women seeking new levels of success as team leaders, political and community leaders, corporate managers and organizational visionaries.
  • The Annual Africa – Middle East – Asia Women Summit (AMEAWS): This is an annual unprecedented tripartite summit, aimed at bringing together, the most influential and prominent women as well as key stakeholders in the Africa, Middle East and Asian regions to re-emphasize and vividly demonstrate the critical role of women to the future of Africa- Middle East and Asian Economies; thereby effectively utilizing the world’s greatest untapped resource – its women.

Online Training: We organize both paid and free online training programs that are targeted at empowering the individual with the skills needed to become an engaging manager that creates confident, inspired, empowered, and enthusiastic teams. Today’s successful leaders are willing to adapt and improve team performance by sharpening their own leadership team development skills in a self-paced on-going manner.
