Journalism is at the heart of democracy. A strong, well-trained, and passionate press is critical to Gambia’s transition to a full-fledged democratic dispensation. The Gambia lived through dark days of harsh media laws, and the U.S. Embassy is committed to strengthening democratic institutions, including the press. We are pleased to support another short-term media capacity development for 25 entry-level journalists at the Insight Training Centre in the Gambia. At the launch of the program recently, Chargé d'Affaires Shelly Seaver said the training will give participants the tools they need to communicate accurately in the written and spoken word so as to do their work professionally and to the highest reporting standards.
Greetings, my name is Adama Jawo ,I want to attend this training centre but I want to know about the procedures and qualifications. If possible if I can get a number to call and make enquiry. Thank you.

PRACTISE OF SELLING

On Friday students in Sales & Marketing brought fresh products, priced them and tried to sell them to one another.

They will never forget now that you need to prepare yourself well to convince people to buy your products. And that sales can't work if you don't talk and connect with potential buyers. Successful sales requires product a demonstration and message content, aligned to targeted customer's need, well presented.

Keep it up!
