“I have interacted with Lend Me Your Ears and John Kageche in our strategy, management and leadership programs. I always find him insightful and knowledgeable. He also demonstrates professionalism, seriousness, (yet fun) and creativity in his approach. I found him (surprisingly, as most facilitators aren’t) well versant with the not-for-profit sector and impressed by his ability to not only  localise global concepts, but also focus his sessions to the unique nature of our sector. If you are looking for courses in leadership and management, or a strategic leadership course in Kenya, look no further than Lend Me Your Ears.” Everlyne Agala Regional Head for People and Development, Sub Saharan Africa, Education Development Trust
