Staffing Plan edit

Our participation and engagement with the SAPG Program in the past year and a half, has strengthened our activities and streamlined our area of expertise. This growing consciousness has clearly created a path for growth and has helped us stipulate our priority areas which continue to shape and mould our activities. Our experience and work in these past year(s) has enabled us to adopt diverse strategies which ensured a strengthened collaboration with our partners and community to achieve our strategic priorities.

Our functional areas of engagement are much more clearer and tailored to aggregate our activities and events throughout the year. These are as follows:

  • Capacity Building and Community Development
  • GLAM & Content Creation
  • Wikip(m)edia in Education
  • Tech and Community Support.
  • Advocacy & Awareness

In the previous year we onboarded a new staff member to ensure that we introduced an additional capacity to meet the needs of our growth. The first full time role (Communication & Community Engagement Coordinator) of the organisation definitely added a helping hand and eased the workload on our volunteer staff members. We envisage to continue in this regard in the coming year, and to ensure that the best of our attention is given to our community and partners. This substantive addition (new full time staff) together with many other tools and resources entrusted with us on behalf of the community (Camera, Printer, Laptop, Routers, Projector, etc.) necessitate a request for an office. We believe it will deepen the trust the WMF has bestowed on us by keeping our possessions safe, provide a space for the new staff and any other team member that requires the use of the space to work and provide a place for community members to easily walk-in and access internet for contributions. Also in our last report we mentioned the need to have an office space as part of the threat posed to us in our SWOT analysis, many partners have asked and still ask for a physical location and we feel disregarding these requests only showcases that we may not be serious or are not entirely genuine.

At OFWA we believe in people's support as volunteerism is at the heart of all the work we do. Based on this philosophy we have developed a meritociticsation system to award active and exceptional contributors, this we believe is highlighting the value we place on member contributions and has heightened the need for dedication and commitment from our community. The adoption of the dashboard to fully track performance allows us to commend our best volunteers on our social media platforms and on our blog. We are also going to institute the “Wikipedian of The Year Award” (a local version) at our annual general meeting this year and in subsequent years. The establishment of the coaching system within our organisation has also improved activity levels and has clearly surged our content creation by about 40% and increased activity levels of previously dormant members.

This year, our approach is to strengthen the relationship we have with the media houses, language institutions and generally work around education. There will be a lot of focus this year around Education and Awareness/Advocacy as we are currently working with the Teacher Education Reform Ghana to engage teachers within the country and with the US Embassy in Ghana to spread the word about the activities of Wikimedia and to set up a club directly at the embassy for these purposes.

Also our lines of activities and programs will be developed along the core functional areas of our organisation as aforementioned. The various metrics and objectives of each of our targeted functional areas is explained below:

Programs edit

GLAM & Content Creation

The GLAM & Content Creation Program of OFWA focuses on opportunities that translate directly into content that improve Wikimedia projects. These contents are targeted at projecting the culture, history, natural heritage, scenic landscape, architecture, monumental structures and artifacts of the country. They are often presented in audiovisual formats and are used to complement already existing articles or aid in the creation of new articles. This program will be targeted at directly improving content on Wikimedia Commons and Wikipedia.


  • The goal of this program is to create content that can be used to visualize articles from our country and (or) provide reference materials to improve the quality of articles that exist and newer ones through sources.
  • In the next 3 years we want to become the beacon for GLAM in the subregion and to position our organisation to be a key stakeholder within the GLAM space, since it is still a growing space.
  • We want to attain this goal through constant engagement and delivering projects in the GLAM field to showcase our capacity and ability to support such institutions.
  • It is the right time to delve into the concept of GLAM since its quite new and will provide us some credibility and an experienced label in the future when people become a lot more conversant with the phenom.
  • We are looking at achieving the goal in this first year after which we will draw a blueprint of the direction we want to go.


  • Wiki Loves Earth
  • Wiki Loves Festivals
  • Wiki Loves Africa
  • Ghana QR Project (Phase 2)

Wiki Loves Earth (WLE)

Wiki Loves Earth (WLE) is an annual international photographic competition targeted at taking pictures of local natural heritage and scenic landscape in their countries, and upload them to Wikimedia Commons. We will be participating in the 2020 campaign to provide photos that can help to better illustrate articles on and about Ghana.


  • Add more images about the local natural heritage and scenic landscape.
  • Improve articles by integrating these images in their related articles or creating articles for non-existing articles.
  • Recruit and train new editors through the various photo expeditions, upload sessions and edit-a-thons.
  • Engage existing editors to contribute to Commons and other sister projects.
  • Create awareness about the Wikimedia movement and its activities in Ghana and beyond.

Wiki Loves Festivals (WLF)

2020 will be the second year of running this campaign and this time around we are looking at roping our colleagues and allies from far and near. It is with this vision that we have created a project page for the campaign with particular interest of scaling the campaign to other countries that are interested. We believe this will create relevance as festivals are a part of every country’s culture and will bridge general gaps around culture on Wikipedia. Festivals are an expressive way to celebrate glorious and sorrowful heritage, culture and traditions. This is important because not all GLAM content exist within GLAM institutions, some are found on our streets, homes, villages and places we often don't look to when talking about GLAM. However still important to share telling the complete story of a particular culture or people. In our bid to promote culture and heritage, we want to continue to run this project in Ghana, first to cover the different types of festivals in Ghana, and hopefully get other countries on-board in 2020.


  • Add more images on Ghanaian culture and heritage through festivals.
  • Improve articles on Ghanaian festivals on English Wikipedia and create new articles or translation in the local language Wikipedias ( Twi and Ga).
  • Create awareness about Wikipedia and its sister projects as tools for promoting culture and heritage.
  • Engage the community of existing contributors in Ghana to use this as an opportunity to contribute.

Wiki Loves Africa (WLA)

We annually participate in the photo contest that projects the rich culture and heritage of the African people. We have participated in this campaign since its inception and contribute to the yearly theme through photowalks and expeditions. It has gradually become an opportunity to run awareness campaigns and to recruit towards our future projects. Our campaigns in the past have sourced more than a 100 unique uploaders who are not members of our community and through this campaign able to reach out to their expertise. Through this campaign, we also maintain our partnerships with photowalk groups and professional photography networks.


  • Add more images about the theme of the campaign.
  • Improve articles by integrating these images in their related articles or creating articles for non-existing articles.
  • Recruit and train new editors through the various photo expeditions, upload sessions and edit-a-thons.
  • Engage existing editors to contribute to Commons and other sister projects.
  • Create awareness about the Wikimedia movement and its activities.

Ghana QR Project (Phase 2)

In 2015, we secured a partnership with the Ghana Museums and Monuments Board under the Wiki Loves Monuments Campaign to capture pictures of all Castles and Monuments in Ghana. This partnership helped us cover almost all of such monuments and today has afforded us the opportunity to capture more than 90% of the list of monuments in Ghana as well as leading to the creation and illustration of articles (most of which are stubs). This feat led to our first Ghana QR Project in 2019 which yielded remarkable results, we are looking at completing our work around these national monuments in phase 2 in 2020.

The Ghana QR project is a mini GLAM project that will run for just 3 months, the project will include improving the articles of all the articles of colonial castles in Ghana to an appreciable level (at least normal article) on Wikipedia. QR codes of these articles will then be made and printed on a plaque posted at the entrance of all these national monuments. This we believe will first improve content about Ghanaian monuments as well as serve the millions of tourists per year who visit these sites.

We will also print leaflets or brochures and make pdf versions that can be obtained through a QR code on our website. This will be put at museum or monument locations to inform users about the project, show visitors to look out for the plaques, how to use the QR codes and a call to action for them to volunteer their own photos.


  • Improve the standard of current Ghanaian monument related articles on Wikipedia.
  • Properly illustrate articles that are lacking such photos that already exist on Commons.
  • Easily serve the millions of visitors or tourists that visit these site locations with comprehensive information about the monument.
  • Digitalise and preserve content about the Ghanaian National Monuments.

Collective Metrics:

  • Engage a total of 120 participants in all contests: these will include at least 20 at photowalks
  • Recruit at least 50 new volunteers.
  • Create over 1600 content pages.
  • Use at least 10% of the total images on Wikimedia projects.
  • Engage at least 20 new uploaders who are remote or from outside of the movement.

Wikip(m)edia in Education

These projects are primarily focussed on the application of Wikipedia and its sister projects in education. This involves activities centered around in-class assignments, clubs and societies and on campus events which inadvertently lead to contributions on Wikipedia and its sister projects through students, instructors, patrons, etc. within an academic setting.


  • The goal of this program is to present more opportunities within the education space in Ghana to ensure there are enough opportunities to create awareness and train more advocates within academia.
  • We wish to grow more club activities within this year. We wish to increase our club presence by at least 20%.
  • We intend to extend the activities of our regional hubs in schools and ensuring that our education programs receive local support to provide access to support and expertise.
  • This program is important to us to help debank the narrative and help improve the image of Wikimedia within academia in Ghana.
  • Its crucial for us to strengthen our existing partnerships and newly to be created partnerships with the university.


  • Summer Open School
  • WikiClubs “X” Activities (where X stands for the name of the university Ashesi, Lancaster and UASS)
  • Ghana Educators’ Forum

Summer Open School (SOS)

This was an event started in 2017 to train participants about the open movement and to encourage the contribution of participants (students) in at least one of the projects of their choice. It was also an open door for other Open Enthusiast/Contributors to learn about other Open Projects, they wish to contribute to. We also at the SOS train participants on the link between all these open projects and how work on one can benefit the rest. For example, convincing a school to start publishing with open access journals means we can freely begin to use such content on Wikipedia and even encourage the excitement around projects like WEP. This approach we believe interconnects and creates an overarching impact for our projects. We have annually run this event as a signature project and the one stop shop to promote cross-collaborations among the Open Movements, a subject that evolved from Wiki Indaba and projected to be the future of the Open Movement in Africa, especially because awareness is low and we believe it’s easier to convert an open enthusiast to join another open project. The event last year saw recruitments of more than 10 ambassadors who have gone back to their schools to host at least one event on their campuses or created partnerships to start hub in their regions. This project also opened doors to partnerships with several organisations such as tech-based organisation Soronko Academy, Lancaster University, OSM Community Ghana, Creative Commons Ghana, etc.


  • Extending the course of Wikimedia to all.
  • Increasing cross collaboration amongst the Open Movement in Ghana.
  • Recruit ambassador of Wikipedia and other sister projects to represent the affiliate in various regions where we are not yet present.
  • Improve content on Wikimedia projects.

WikiClub “X” Activities

These are campus-based club that was spearheaded by Open Foundation West Africa and has been fully registered under the schools' bylaws and operational on their respective campuses. These are intended to promote the Education project as well as other interventions within the movement with a close supervision by Open Foundation West Africa. These clubs serve as a continuous platform or medium to engage students all year round. These clubs are critical because the continue to support students that are churned from the Education Programs of their respective schools. Students have the opportunity to meet with the club to learn more about other Wikimedia projects and to be encouraged through contests and competitions run by the club on campus. Their normal activities also serve as a recruitment opportunity for even students who don't take part in the Wikipedia Education Program on campus yet have the interest to join the club. Due to the diversity of students in Ghana (usually covering students from a lot of other African countries) we believe that lessons learnt could be taken back to their respective countries, to support existing or start new communities.


  • Extending the course of Wikimedia to students.
  • Recruit and train new prospective editors.
  • Complement the activities of the Education Program by providing additional support to students.
  • Support new recruits all semesters of the year, since the Education Program only runs every other semester.

Ghana Educators Forum (GEF)

The Ghana Educators Forum is a novelty project that we are organising with one of our major educational partners, Transforming Teacher Education & Learning in Ghana (T-TEL). The idea is to bring together 20 to 40 teachers or educators to one space to discuss the current information and representation gaps on the internet and how Ghana can take advantage of education to correct that. This will also tackle the misconception that has been passed on from generation of teachers without any proper justification, “do not use Wikipedia”. We will at this forum educate these educators because when we get it right with them it will create the ease of acceptance and indirectly create ambassadors for Wikimedia. OFWA is ready to lead conversations around changing the misconceptions about Wikipedia and ensuring that these conversations don’t only end up in the classrooms of the teachers that attend the event but build momentum for a policy change around the use of platforms such as Wikipedia and general licenses around education texts.


  • Extending the course of Wikimedia to teachers.
  • Recruit and train new prospective editors or wikimedia organizers in the education setting.

Collective Metrics

  • Train about 100 participants for the entire program.
  • Train 50 new volunteers.
  • Create 400 content pages during the span of the program.
  • Reuse over 50 images in the course of the program.
  • Maintain at least 20 active people.
  • Get participants to at least extend one content on another Open project to a Wikimedia project

Tech and Community Support

This entails activities that train and recruit developers with the vision of creating a community and providing technical support services to the volunteer editing community. This program also targets unique solutions that targets technical local projects as well as movement wide projects that serve the African communities.

We are however significantly reducing the number of events under this project to only 2 a year from the previous 4 a year to make room for organic growth and to ensure we prioritize the countries that we visit.


  • Create a community of active developers across the continent.
  • Ensure participation of members in international campaigns that are essential to Wikimedia (Summer of Code (GSoC), Outreachy, etc.)
  • Create a solution to at least one of the major technical concerns from wider Africa community.
  • Participate in solving requests from the community wish list.
  • Organize developer communities for the benefit of local affiliate groups.


  • Involve 80 developers throughout the span of the program.
  • Train about 80 new developers on the continent.
  • Submit at least 50 patches and have about 50 merged.

Advocacy & Awareness

OFWA has a very strong online and offline media presence. This program seeks to employ the services of our Communications & Community Engagement Coordinator to strengthen our presence both offline and online, as well as leverage our current visibility to draw in more partners and volunteers for our movement. We acknowledge that the space we work in is dynamic and to thrive we need to be flexible and spontaneous to breed innovation. Our program tries to dynamically address arising situations and issues that deserve our attention and proactiveness to ensure growth and achieve the innovation we need to exist. This also intends to address the needs and the struggles of our community to ensure they are adequately supported and to deepen our visibility or presence.


  • The main goal is to create awareness about Wikimedia projects and help to change the narrative that exist about the platform.
  • Educate at least 30 people on Wikimedia tools and projects.
  • This goal will be attained through a mix of offline and online activities targeted at our prospective audiences. We are literally going to bring Wikimedia activities to the doorsteps of these group of people through engagement and provision of our resources that meet their specific needs or interests.
  • Its relevant to our work because readership is a segment of the audience Wikimedia serves and without them our projects will have no relevance. Readers are also prospective editors to our projects and the right kind of awareness strategy can lead them to a new found interest around our projects.
  • We believe that by the end of the year we may be able to exceed our goal of 30 on this program.


  • Wiki Contests and Debates (Inter- Schools Debate)
  • Online Thematic Campaigns
  • Kiwix Outreach Program
  • Ghana Media Forum
  • Wiki Session in Liberia

Wiki Contests and Debates

Over the past years, we have organised many writing contests which birthed newbies across the country, contributions from people within the West African sub region and diasporans. This has in effect brought into existence the creation of articles by diverse groups and on diverse people. We believe an adaption of monthly online writing contests with debate held in school will not only assist with advocacy but will surge the contributions of pupils in the country. These contests and debates, will help dominate the internet space and serve as a medium to transfer and exchange knowledge from moderators to contestants for a better appreciation of decolonising of the internet through local languages and media.

These contests will address issues with gaps around local languages being represented online, our partners from the University of Education, Winneba, Artland group in Kumasi and Ghana Bureau of Languages will furnish us with the expertise we need to ensure a sustaining impact. A debate will be organised at an inter-school level to bring together different institutions to help broaden the scope of knowledge sharing to improve Wikimedia activities as well as hold regular Wikipedia related competitions among schools to assess their level of competence and skills developed over the period.


  • Increasing the course of Wikimedia to students, researchers and linguists.
  • Encourage participation in wikimedia projects
  • Complement the activities of Wikimedia by providing educational contests to students.
  • Support new recruits all semester /term of the year, since the contests and debates will be held during the period.

Online Thematic Campaigns

As a growing community with extended wings across the globe, we often get connected with other affiliate groups and institutions to hold virtual activities to encourage global participation and gap bridging on content, female representation, historians, Afrofuturism, curators and many more. Some of these activities are that of the annual US celebration on Black History Month, African Union Day, as well as support for the Black Speculative And Arts Movement activities. These campaigns gravitate interest of these groups to contribute to bridging the knowledge gap. We however believe that holding these campaigns will not only draw people nigh to the community, but will extend the cause of the movement to regions and people who may not have an idea on how their support may strengthen the overall vision of wikimedia.


  • Encourage the participation of people remotely.
  • Recruit and train new prospective editors.
  • Project the adaptation of wikimedia as a capacity building tool.

Kiwix Outreach Program

As rural and developing communities continue to exist, we want to embark on a series of outreach programs for schools in deprived areas who lack access to the internet. This project seeks to pave the way to ensure a sustaining club since accessibility to offline readable materials are scarce. The program will adopt a strategy in penetrating the school system by introducing Wikimedia Education to teachers and administrators.


  • Extending access of Kiwix to students across the country.
  • Integrate Kiwix into school’s curriculum so as to increase usage time and adequate understanding of the resource
  • Complement the It is expected that access will lead to improved academic performance and better test scores.
  • Encourage editing and readership
  • It will also afford them the opportunity to use Kiwix in their lesson preparations and for research.

Ghana Media Forum (GMF)

The Ghana Media Forum is a novelty project co-organised by OFWA and the Media Foundation for West Africa (MFWA). The forum which is targeted at training and engaging media persons on the need to write more about our country to allow coverage about our country on the internet. Writing articles on Wikipedia is often a burdened task for volunteers as most content lack any or enough coverage to aid in the writing of articles. Partnering with a major stakeholder such as MFWA in the media setting implies that there is a strong support for our trainings and an automatic establishment of audience for participation. This project is a first step in creating awareness about the need for coverage and its importance in online visibility. We will also project Wikipedia as an online resource that can project our history and culture and entice media personnels to be contributors in their own plight.


  • Extending the course of Wikimedia to media personnel
  • Providing a capacity building framework for digital literacy and visibility
  • Creating awareness of Wikimedia and its activities to the media sector (prospective allies in information production)
  • Forging new partnerships and creating contents that augment the quality of articles from Ghana

Wiki Session in Liberia

Our quest to train and recruit volunteers for the movement in the past have been very fruitful. We have trained and supported more than 6 affiliates within the movement of which 3 have become user groups. We have identified an opportunity in Liberia where we have already trained about 3 individuals ready to lead Wikimedia Initiatives in Liberia. We deem this initiative crucial to starting a community there and one that complements our mandate to work within the West African sub-region. With the already remote trainings provided to the three individuals, we wish to provide in-person support toward their first Wikimedia training and to provide inputs on how to start and manage a community. We will also provide continuous support to after the event to establish a community and support its existence in order to help it thrive.

Objectives Extending the course of Wikimedia to those who have been left out Creating awareness of Wikimedia and its activities to newer communities or groups Forging new partnerships and creating contents that augment the quality of existing articles or provide new content from Liberia

Collective Metrics:

  • Involve at least 30 participants.
  • Recruit 30 new volunteers.
  • Create 70 content pages.
  • Re-use at least 10 images across Wikimedia projects.
  • Maintain at least 20 active people.
  • Improve the presence of Wikipedia in Ghana and extend to the West African subregion.

Organizational Development edit

Capacity Building and Community Development

The section consists of five different events/activities targeted at revising our work in the past year and building community and staff health. This encompasses all our events and activities aimed at building a solid community to ensure events, projects and interventions are carried out successfully. This will also include the training and development of volunteers with the requisite technical and project management skills to surge interest and increase retention. Our efforts and the opportunities created with the 2019 SAPG increased our presence in one additional region.


  • The goal of this priority area is to ensure that the needs and interest of the community are met. The goal is to enforce commitment, contributions and to ensure sustainability of our community.
  • In the next 3 to 5 years we want our strategies around this priority area to churn new community leaders or movement organizers.
  • This priority will be achieved through carefully crafted community engagement and communication strategies. It will also be achieved through consistent guidance on topical contributions and initiatives around Wikimedia projects.
  • Its relevant to our main goal of producing content and showcasing the benefits of our platforms.
  • By the end of the fiscal year We expect our membership to grow by 10% and about 10% increase in our active membership.


  • Monthly Community meetups in Accra, Kumasi & Ho
  • Quarterly Community meet-ups in Tarkwa, Cape Coast & Koforidua
  • Team Retreat & Strategic Planning
  • Wikimania participation (New Staff)
  • Chairpersons Meeting

Monthly Community Meetups

Our monthly meet-ups are intended to enable us to host regular meetups at our hubs in Accra, Kumasi, Ho and Tamale since these are now well established hubs and will be autonomous in running their activities. What we have realized is that recruited volunteers often contribute more when they attend activities or events, in this regard we have decided to organise monthly meet ups to contribute towards the thematic causes and to use the opportunity to constantly serve as a reminder to our members of their core commitment to maintain activeness of our membership. These regular meetups will ensure that at least once in a month new members and old members alike will get together to contribute on Wikimedia projects. These monthly meet-ups will be thematic such that at every month volunteers get the chance to meet, learn new things and also contribute to diverse topics (Language Sessions, Wikidata Sessions, Commons Sessions, etc.). These meet ups will help forge a healthy and sustainable community. It will also ensure that the capacity of old and new volunteers are enhanced within the movement.


  • Maintain the interest of members as well as new recruits.
  • Train new and old volunteers on basic editing tools.
  • Give members and new members the opportunity to contribute and network on a regular basis.
  • Create an active community for local language Wikipedias.
  • Create awareness about local language Wikipedias in Ghana.
  • Promote the readership and usage of Ghanaian languages online.

Quarterly Community Meetups

If you follow the trend of our activities from our previous SAPG, we used the quarterly meetups to organically grow newer hubs that we created As a follow up to some partnerships we have secured, we intend having hubs at a slow pace compared to the already developed ones. This year we are moving into 3 new regions in Ghana; Eastern Region, Central Region and Western Region. The quarterly meet-ups to help us to activate these communities, especially because they are out of our target region (outside Accra) and we deem them essential to increasing reach and ensuring penetration to the length and breadth of Ghana. This will provide a unique outreach opportunity in other parts of the country where we don’t primarily operate. We already have volunteers on the ground whom we trained and will be in charge of these communities under our close supervision as an extension of OFWA. The first meet up will be a training session and the subsequent two (2) will be edit-a-thons to provide an opportunity for the community to get a chance to contribute to Wikimedia projects. We will do this in the 3 new regions we are have gained partnerships in are looking forward to expand to.

Objectives Begin and maintain outreach of the movement in other parts of the country thereby giving volunteers in these areas the chance to contribute. Increase content about the new regions on Wikipedia. Create awareness about Wikipedia and its sister projects online. Recruit new volunteers from other parts of Ghana and give them the opportunity and platform to contribute to Wikipedia and its sister projects.

Collective Metrics

  • Involve 80 volunteers in the course of the project
  • Recruit at least 60 new volunteers.
  • Improve and create over 100 articles on 9 different topics/themes in Ghana.
  • Re-use at least 30 images across Wikimedia projects.
  • Translate at least 50 new contents across Wikimedia projects

Team Capacity Building and Strategic Planning

OFWA is very keen on maintaining a well rounded and staff strength that meets the needs of its community. This has been showcased in our quest to grow a team that reflects our priority or focus areas. We are also very keen on strengthening our teams cohesion and improving their abilities to suit our growing needs as an organisation. These goals we continue to achieve through capacity building opportunities and other opportunities that compliment this focus. Our community is not left out on this action and hence our carefully planned community engagement strategies and the annual general meeting to capture and ably address their needs.

Annual General Meeting (AGM)

This is our yearly meeting with the community and major stakeholders to highlight our achievements in the past year and discuss plans for the coming year. It is also an avenue to collect feedback from our stakeholders and community. Future voting for community representatives to the board will be held at this forum.

Team Retreat & Strategic Planning

The event focuses on team appraisal, meeting with the board to address issues within the organisation and to build the capacity of the team in areas where they fall short. It is also the only opportunity in the year to increase team spirit through team bonding and addressing feedback collected during the AGM with the hopes of coming up with strategies that take into consideration stakeholders and volunteer plights.

Wikimania participation (New Staff)

Providing an immersive opportunity for our staff within the larger Wikimedia movement. This will also be an opportunity to engage, share lessons from our projects and as well learn from other projects across the movement.

Chairpersons Meeting

As part of our investments to build the capacity of the personnel that manage and provide support to our organisation. We are excited to provide capacity building opportunity for our board to enhance their work. As a recent member of the Wikimedia Chairpersons Group, we believe the convening of such leaders in the community is instrumental to learning and also providing the forum for strategic discussions within the movement.


  • Ensure every community member has a sense of belonging and identity towards OFWA.
  • Gathering feedback from all stakeholders and considering these in planning towards the incoming year.
  • Invite target or prospective partners to learn about what we do.
  • Growing team spirit and bonding to improve productivity.
  • Drawing a strategic priorities and plan for the coming year.
