Knowledge and Skills development is vital to the health of every organization. MEADFA’s commitment to contribute to the growth and progress of the duty free industry encouraged the Board to initiate the MEADFA Training & Development Programs.

The “Learning Together” process proved to be extremely successful. Consequently, bringing together members’ employees at one event and facilitating exchange of information between various operations have been appreciated by all.

Over 300 delegates attended the MEADFA Training & Development programs during which all participants demonstrated eagerness and enthusiasm in sharing the new practices learned and information exchanged at their workplace.

Programs organized to date and offered to the benefit of MEADFA members are:

  • Building service excellence
  • Train the trainer
  • Negotiation skills
  • Cross cultural Communication
  • Leadership Programs
  • Stock Control and Supply Chain Management
  • Finance for Non-Finance Managers
  • Human Resource Forum
  • Retail Forum
  • Warehouse & Supply Chain Forum

Keeping in line with our aim to continue expanding on the training initiative we have held four programs during 2014. It is our aim to further develop this into a broader platform in the future

It is a privilege for MEADFA to be part in the growth and progress of the Duty Free industry. Many challenges remain and we look forward for new projects to maintain our standards of quality and value.
