“Joining LIMC program was one of the best decisions in my life. I have acquired knowledge that helped me work smarter, become efficient, open minded, embrace and create change within our organisation so we can remain a preferred logistics service provider in the chemical and petrochemical industry. Being back to university at the age of 42 was fun. I have enjoyed it very much and I don’t doubt that I will be doing it all over again in the future!”
