National Training Council director Kinsella Geoffrey said the cultural heritage of our people contained expression of social sensibility such as respect, dignity and honour.
Geoffrey said the world was changing with technology affecting the way people were conducting their operations.
He said it was important that we maintained our cultural traditions and norms in these changing times.

“For instance the traditional norms and practices that are embedded in our cultures can be harness to complement the required skills, knowledge, person attribute of position in an organization, or to be part of a member of a project team,” Geoffrey said.
