E-Library Management-Extending Modern Technology to Libraries Workshop

Starts: 9th Jun, 2020

Location: Bus-Stop, 105 Ikorodu Rd, Fadeyi, Ikeja

Summary

E-Library Management-Extending Modern Technology to Libraries Workshop Libraries, especially digital libraries, are truly at the heart of knowledge societies; they enable people to access, share, and apply knowledge. Digital libraries provide access to many of the knowledge networks around the world, which is a necessary component of a knowledge society. Digital libraries have traditionally been positioned at the intersection of library science, computer science, and networked information systems. In Nigeria, several government ministries and organizations were also considering possibilities on how they should start the DL development process at the national level? What resources should be digitized? Where from funds will come? As a beginner, many private and government organizations started their own websites capturing limited resources in the digital form, however, no formal strategic and coordinated initiative were taken until then. Moreover, not many windows were open in Nigeria for library professionals to learn more about the advancement of digital libraries. We at CPSPD had understood in early 2010 that the era of digital library and digitization had started for capturing and dissemination of knowledge in the developed world and many users and organizations across the world immensely benefitted from it. CPSPD idea of annual e-library conference since 2013 was to bridge the gap between Nigeria and other developed nations to address the challenges and opportunities with respect to digitization of resources. Workshop Profile Digital libraries : problems and prospects Extending Benefits of Modern Technology to Public, Academic and Special Libraries Organization of digital library in the University Library System Collaboration in public library Use of virtual learning environment in higher education to teach digital natives: A case study Digital Libraries Development and Management: Institutional Repositories in Nigeria - A Study Knowledge management in academic libraries: A brief review Who Should Attend Librarians, Library Officers, Lecturers, ICT staff etc in Universities, Polytechnics and Colleges of Education Phone: Dr Chris Egbu +2348023194131

Empower Trade Unions: Create Relevance and Industrial Harmony Course

Starts: 28th Jul, 2020

Location: Bus-Stop, 105 Ikorodu Rd, Fadeyi, Ikeja

Summary

The Trade Union Movement the world over has recently more than at any other time in its history come under severe stress and threats as a result of internal and external pressures that have arisen out of the changing global socio-economic relations and weakening internal capacities and capabilities to respond adequately and creatively to the challenges. Collective bargaining has come under serious survival tests undermining the capacity of the Unions as platforms for articulating, negotiating and projecting the interests and expectations of workers the world over. Terms and Conditions of employment have all worsened with dire consequences for Industrial Relations and the Socio-economic framework. The implications of this are increasingly lowering of labor standards the world over especially in under developed economies like ours. The abuse and violation of workplace and workers' rights and privileges are becoming increasingly commonplace. Intimidations, harassment, breaching of the Rule of Law, impunity and flagrant resort to unconventional means to resolve employee relations issues have all taken center stage. It is therefore imperative to state that new challenges have emerged and employers of labor both in the Public and Private sectors have adopted new strategies and tactics in conducting Human Resource management and overall Industrial Relations practice. These new practices and challenges are mostly skewed against the working people and in the long run the continued survival of organizations. Workshop Profile The aims of this workshop shall amongst others be; To equip Trade Union leadership at all levels with new leadership strategies To build increasing working-class consciousness in the leadership To inculcate in the leadership at all levels new tools and skills for engaging the social partners To expose the leadership of the union to some of the emerging challenges to trade unions globally and in Nigeria. To build in trade union leaders especially the new comers the principles of Union rights and limitations To ensure that the Union is capable of providing benefits to its membership in the future To keep the Unions strategically evolving and relevant to the Management and the workplace. Finally, to equip the leadership with necessary skills to ensure the continuous survival of the union in a constantly changing world. Workshop Content: The History and Principles of trade unionism Negotiation techniques in a changing society Workers' Rights and Employers' prerogatives in the workplace Democratic Dissent and trade Union Activism Rights abuses and violations in the workplace: Role of Union activists Leadership issues and challenges within the trade unions in Nigeria Tripartism in the context of global pressures and internal vicissitudes Survival/relevance of trade unions in Nigeria – tools for engagement Creating a symbiosis between Management objectives and Trade Union Objectives Obstacles to effective organizing in trade unions Workplace harmony and responsive trade union actions Management – Trade union partnership for organizational survival: Issues and challenges Industrial Harmony: issues and challenges The structure, Functions and Objectives of Trade Unions Target Audience Chairman, Chief Executives and Directors Trade Union Officials Industrial Relations Managers/Officers HR Managers / Personnel Officers Legal Advisers/ Officers Senior Staff of National Industrial Court (NIC) and Industrial Arbitration Panel (IAP) All union and management representatives of all labor-management consultation committees should participate in joint learning on labor management consultation Delivery Method: The program will be delivered using the following methodologies: Lectures, discussions, syndicate work, Videos, case studies and exercises Phone: Dr Chris Egbu +2348023194131

The Role of Empowering Women and Achieving Gender Equality To Sustainable Development

Starts: 2nd Jun, 2020

Location: Lagos

Summary

The purpose of this course is to uncover the role of empowering women and achieving gender equality in the sustainable development. The use of a women's labour force in the economic development of the country is minimal. The political sphere of the country is, by and large, reserved for men alone. The place of women in society is also relegated to contributing minimally to the social development of the country. In addition, women's rights are not properly being protected for women to participate in various the issues of their country but are subjected to abysmal violations. Moreover, women are highly affected by environmental problems, and less emphasis is given to their participation in protecting the environment. The course concludes that unless women are empowered and gender equality is achieved so that women can play their role in economic, social, political, and environmental areas, the country will not achieve sustainable development with the recognition of only men's participation in all these areas. Objectives What is women's empowerment? What is sustainable development? Why should we empower women and achieve gender equality? Role of women in Economic growth as one component of sustainable development Course Content Definition of women's empowerment Economic growth as one component of sustainable development, is unthinkable without the involvement of women Political development/good governance Human rights protection Recommendations Audience Policy actors and practitioners from international organisations and aid agencies NGO staff Government officials Private individuals Independent consultants and development practitioners Phone: Dr Chris Egbu +2348023194131

Africa 2050 Summit(Babcock University)

Starts: 27th Mar, 2019

Location: Babcock University Ijebu Remon, Ijebu Remon

Summary

AFRICA 2050 Africa 2050 is a shared passion by THE CIRCLE MEDIA PLUS and AFRICAN VOICE NEWSPAPER UK and is becoming a movement of passionate youth to see a developed Africa before the year 2050. Having organised Africa 2050 summit in UNIVERSITY OF NAIROBI, KAMPALA UNIVERSITY, LEAD CITY UNIVERSITY, and UNIVERSITY of IBADAN, it has become a vision to run with extending our tentacles to other Universities across Africa to reach out to the Future leaders of this great continent to wake up and make a change. Africa has been perceived as a dark continent and dwarfed by International Media. The continent is characterised by poverty, diseases, political instability, war and corruption. This is a call to take limit off Africa and position her in a path of victory and success before the year 2050. The share vision of 2050 is for Africa to soar higher and take her rightful position ensuring all nations within the continents are developed. THEME: LEADERSHIP: THE NECCESSITY FOR NIGERIA’S AND AFRICA’S FUTURE DEVELOPMENT The prime quality of great leaders is the clear perception they hold about the future; thinking about the future most of the time. And thinking about the future requires strategic planning, which is in turn requires a visionary leadership. For the future of the Africa’s development, some kinds of strategies are imperatives, namely quality leadership, increased industrial research and development, strong democratic institution, effective legislation against political and economic corruption, both of which are impediment to sustainable development. The African continent is in need of leadership. As Marwan Bishara, a senior political analyst at Al-Jazeera writes, ‘States of the world: In search of Leadership’ (Al Jazeera September 27, 2015) There are many world rulers, but no leaders or leadership. Bishara’s perception is that these world leaders, ‘instead of leading by example among the family of Nations’, world leadership are acting like toxic in-laws. They …preach that which they don’t practice, cause tensions, and create more problems than they solve. Turning the search light on African leaders and the level of development of the continent, one cannot but appeal for a rethink by our leaders to toe the path of greatness, to imbibe the culture that power is for service and not personal accumulation of wealth, that the purpose of leadership is the seeking of the general good will of the people, to meet the needs of the people who need prosperity and dignity. SUB THEME • Service leadership, the perception lost in African leadership • Introducing Hygiene into African politics through quality leadership • Empowering the youth towards national development AFRICA 2050 SUMMIT The summit will be an intellectual gathering of concerned political leaders, industry leaders, media giants, erudite and youth from different institutions across Nigeria.

YOUTH TRANSFORM AFRICA

Starts: 28th Mar, 2020

Location: Eko Hotel And Suits, Victoria Island

Summary

Youth Transform Africa is a shared passion by THE CIRCLE MEDIA PLUS and AFRICAN VOICE NEWSPAPER UK. It is a progeny of AFRICA 2050 SUMMIT and it is to create more platforms for African Youth to gather every year and propel a change for Africa to prosper. FOCUS It appears to be bad enough to give the impression that Nigeria does not have the capacity to manage a successful economy, efficiently run by experts that are indigenes. But this is a false impression. Nigeria has and continues to possess the potential for the internationally accepted experts who could manage any economy or any economic institution successfully anywhere. The only tragedy of the country is that real experts are not allowed to occupy politically sensitive positions from which an efficient economic management can be driven. Chief Obafemi Awolowo was not a German or British , yet he ran one of the most successful government anywhere in Africa when he was Premier of old Western Region, attaining a developmental excellence which is yet to be rivaled in comparative terms of the resources available to him at the time during which those achievement were made . The likes of Obafemi Awolowo and Nelson Mandela have set the pace for African youth to wake up and transform Africa. MC EBUKA-OBI-USHENDU THE OBJECTIVES ⦁ To create a pool of thought that will lure Africa to rise to her potentials. ⦁ To develop the psychological well-being of our leaders and channel them towards the right path ⦁ To re-orientate the mind of our leaders and the youths alike. ⦁ To make every Youth know that they are agent of change. ⦁ To raise leaders that will invest in the future of the upcoming generation. AFTER THE SUMMIT EACH MEMBER OF THE AUDIENCE SHOULD BE INSPIRED TO BE ABLE: ⦁ Highlight their personal responsibility towards the development of their country. ⦁ Form a network of people that can deliberate on way forward. ⦁ Identify their own action plan and investment into the future of AFRICA. ⦁ To start the process of walking and working in love with the understanding of its implications on the growth of their nation. ⦁ To list principles of good governance and the scrutinize vision align with good Governance. ⦁ To come to the full knowledge of being responsible for the development of Africa ⦁ To plan and invest in the future leaders and the generation yet un-born.

E-Library Management-Extending Modern Technology to Libraries Workshop

Starts: 8th Oct, 2019

Location: Lagos

Summary

E-Library Management-Extending Modern Technology to Libraries Workshop Libraries, especially digital libraries, are truly at the heart of knowledge societies; they enable people to access, share, and apply knowledge. Digital libraries provide access to many of the knowledge networks around the world, which is a necessary component of a knowledge society. Digital libraries have traditionally been positioned at the intersection of library science, computer science, and networked information systems. In Nigeria, several government ministries and organizations were also considering possibilities on how they should start the DL development process at the national level? What resources should be digitized? Where from funds will come? As a beginner, many private and government organizations started their own websites capturing limited resources in the digital form, however, no formal strategic and coordinated initiative were taken until then. Moreover, not many windows were open in Nigeria for library professionals to learn more about the advancement of digital libraries. We at CPSPD had understood in early 2010 that the era of digital library and digitization had started for capturing and dissemination of knowledge in the developed world and many users and organizations across the world immensely benefitted from it. CPSPD idea of annual e-library conference since 2013 was to bridge the gap between Nigeria and other developed nations to address the challenges and opportunities with respect to digitization of resources. Workshop Profile Digital libraries : problems and prospects Extending Benefits of Modern Technology to Public, Academic and Special Libraries Organization of digital library in the University Library System Collaboration in public library Use of virtual learning environment in higher education to teach digital natives: A case study Digital Libraries Development and Management: Institutional Repositories in Nigeria - A Study Knowledge management in academic libraries: A brief review Who Should Attend Librarians, Library Officers, Lecturers, ICT staff etc in Universities, Polytechnics and Colleges of Education Tel: +2348023194131

Auditing Conduct Risk Course

Starts: 3rd Dec, 2019

Location: Abuja

Summary

Conduct risk is the threat of financial loss to an organization caused by the poor judgment of managers and employees. Conduct risk management gained more attention in the corporate sector, and especially the financial field, after it was revealed that unethical behavior was a primary cause of the 2007 global financial crisis. A sound governance framework should help drive a positive culture that makes compliance and ethical behavior a responsibility for every employee, at all levels. Rather than measuring or providing an opinion on culture, Internal Auditors is increasingly including substantive testing of culture, holding a mirror to the organization on what staff have shared confidentially across each individual audit, and across multiple audits across the organization. As the third line of defense, internal audit provides an independent and end-to-end view on how those at the first line (business units) are encouraging and promoting the appropriate culture, and how the second line (risk and compliance) is monitoring and challenging the organization to keep on the right path. Traditionally, internal audit (IA) has focused on providing assurance with respect to known risks and the effectiveness of controls in mitigating those risks. Regulators, however, are increasingly interested in an organization’s ability to identify blind spots, unknown risks, and other vulnerabilities that may undermine the integrity of the risk management environment, including the risk of misconduct. When we talk about ‘conduct risk’ we often go on to describe the risk of customer or client product controls failing, or maybe, 'treating customers unfairly'. And, as we know, conduct is on the radar of regulators, leading to penalties or even delicensing. This course leads you through strategies for auditing this subject. Who should attend? The course is open to all. What will I learn? Upon completion you will be able to: Identify and define the difference between conduct risk and other types of risk Understand how conduct risk can be qualitatively or quantitatively measured Be able to undertake an audit of conduct and culture risk within your organization. Course Outline About conduct risk What constitutes conduct risk – what is different about conduct risk? Can you define and measure conduct risk? Is auditing conduct risk any different from auditing any other type of risk? Auditing conduct risk Are we considering the interests of our customers and treating them fairly? Can we prove we have a culture that supports customer interests? How do we differentiate between high and low risk customer products? Who challenges products from the customer's perspective? How are products shaped to meet customer's expectations? Are our controls proportionate to risk levels? How do we incentivise product sales and deployment? Do we ensure that products are correctly described for defined customer profiles? Do third parties market, sell or distribute our products? How do we control third parties? Do we have appropriate on-going product service arrangements for our customers? How do we process claims and complaints? Is conduct risk reassessed at routine intervals or when business strategy changes? Do we perform stress scenario analysis and challenge against our products? phone: +2348023194131

Auditing Organisations Culture Course

Starts: 15th Oct, 2019

Location: Abuja

Summary

The aim of this course is to study and examine an organization's cultural characteristics (such as its assumptions, norms, philosophy, and values) to determine whether they hinder or support its vision and mission. A strong company culture has always been important for sustained organizational success - with benefits including a clear company identity, improved talent attraction and retention, and a better brand and employment image. New developments, however, make a strong culture a near necessity. What’s new? Recognizing the benefits of strong cultures, more organizations are focused on creating one. Workplace expert Larry Alton noted, “If you don’t at least keep pace with a strong culture and find a way to differentiate yourself, you’re going to fall behind.” In deciding where to work, millennial value a strong company culture more than anything else. The hyper-competitive modern startup economy “forces entrepreneurs to find a sticking point for workers who may otherwise bounce after a short-term assignment.” We’ll list two more developments: There’s never been more visibility into organizational culture than now. For example, candidates can see social media posts about what it’s like to work at an organization. Or, if they know someone who works at the organization, learning about the culture is just a quick text or instant message away. The candidate-friendly labor market makes talent attraction and retention more important than usual. This course will examine what we mean by culture, sub-culture and how this differs from behaviour. It will equip audit teams with an ability to critically evaluate those who want to argue that culture can be “bottled and managed” through surveys and discussion groups, highlighting how easy it could be for audit to get “drawn in” to cultural blind-spots, which might limit its ability to be truly independent and objective in this important but complex area. The course will discuss good practice approaches to tackling culture through enhancing root cause analysis and watching behaviours during assignments, and will also highlight pitfalls including underestimating the criteria for any audit of culture and the political dimensions of any work in culture. Who should attend? Heads of internal audit and audit managers. What will I learn? Upon completion you will be able to: Understand key guidance concerning internal audit's role in looking at culture Understand the psychological and systemic drivers that create culture, sub-cultures and individual behaviors Understand the many different ways to approach an analysis of culture (including measuring management attitudes to audit) and the benefits and pitfalls of each Start to deepen your understanding of your organization’s culture and your audit team culture and how this can and will affect your approach to auditing culture in your own organization. Course Outline Definitions Definitions and models of culture - no one correct version - no matter what anyone tells you Where does culture come from? Psychological factors - individual, national, group dynamics and dealing with authority/politics Differences between the espoused and real culture – understanding defensive routines. Why is culture hard to measure? What can and cannot be inferred from staff surveys The link between risk appetite and risk culture and the problem of finding suitable criteria when looking into cultural issues. Chartered Institute of Internal Auditors ( IIA) and other guidance concerning culture Overview of Chartered IIA, Financial Conduct Authority ( FCA) etc. guidance. Practical approaches and good practices Paying attention to audit behaviors and management attitude towards audits Root cause analysis and culture Practical first steps. Looking ahead Recognizing the limits of internal audit in this area – the risk of taking on a management role and of false assurance Being able to critically evaluate the strengths and weaknesses of using consultants to help you work on this area.

The notion of extreme risk and the extreme events that might arise from these risks is a theme that runs through several of the natural and social sciences.

Location: TBA abuja

Summary

In this GLOMACS Negotiating and Managing PPP Contracts training seminar, we examine PPP from first principles to real-world examples, learning from the success and failure of PPP projects around the world. We introduce, demonstrate and test best practice recommendations for project evaluation, contractual drafting, procurement and contract management. In this GLOMACS training seminar, we dispel some common myths and misconceptions concerning PPP, and we address crucial practical issues such as community and stakeholder engagement, incentivizing or compelling contractual performance and dealing with requests for variation or renegotiation of contract terms. PPP can mobilize private sector investment and expertise to provide much-needed infrastructure and public services. It can transform government departments and contracting authorities from being owners and operators of assets into knowledgeable purchasers of services from the private sector. However, with more than 110 countries competing for PPP funding and expertise, success depends on the development of public and private sector capacity and understanding of PPP. This GLOMACS training seminar will highlight: Best Practice for Project Evaluation and Procurement What makes a "bankable" PPP? How to use Payment Mechanisms to incentivize or enforce Contractual Performance? The Lessons we can learn from PPP Successes and Failures The Essential Role of Good Contract Management – from beginning to end Objectives This GLOMACS training course will enhance your ability to determine whether PPP is the best vehicle for your projects, and to ensure that you have in place the contract terms and contract management techniques to ensure long-term success. At the end of this GLOMACS training course, you will learn to: Analyze and evaluate project proposals to decide whether they are suitable for PPP Apply best practice in procurement, promoting transparency, fairness and "bankability" Understand where contractual disputes are most likely to arise, and how to deal with them Decide how best to respond to problems, and how to rescue a PPP Determine how to secure and maintain political and public confidence in PPP Training Methodology In this GLOMACS Contracts Management training course, our expert presenter draws on practical experience and extensive discussion with policy makers, Ministers, Law Officers, PPP Units, private sector contractors and funders in Africa and around the world. This GLOMACS training course blends presentations with practical case studies and interactive exercises to ensure that participants have ample opportunity to discuss, challenge and understand the key principles of PPP. Organisational Impact Success can be learned, and failures avoided, by examining others' experience. Throughout GLOMACS this training course, we draw on practical examples of best practice and well-documented failures to maximize your team's chances of success.

Personal Impact Your team members will learn and have the opportunity to practice techniques for: Evaluating project proposals, whether invited or unsolicited Managing or mitigating demand risk Drafting, negotiating and managing performance of high quality PPP contracts Accurately and confidently deciding how best to respond to delays, problems or unforeseen events Communicating the social value and economic benefits of PPP Who Should Attend?
