ELC workshops are “the most important thing to make a change in development”.
-- Aleem Walji, Direct of World Bank Innovation Labs.

The Engineering Leadership Council offers workshops on building technical capacity, budget allocation, and understanding client needs.

Workshops are led by speakers with expertise in these topics, can be customized to your team, and provide hands-on learning of new practices and tools.

The ELC also provides follow-up coaching and facilitation to deepen understanding of the workshop content and help put principles into practice.
