He was pleased to note that through the programme, the staff members were able to identify various projects, to contribute to the enhancement of PPKS’s operations.


Mr. Hallman also urged the fifteen staff members to be role models for their subordinates. In this respect, they would need to uphold PPKS’s core values in all aspects of their activities. As leaders, it was also of utmost importance for them to Lead by Example and Walk the Talk. They would also have to wear many hats to bring out the best in their subordinates and work with them to achieve or even exceed various targets.


Mr. Hallman also shared on the importance of succession planning at PPKS. This would go a long way to develop future leaders and prepare them for a world filled with exciting opportunities.
