DIZENGOFF GHANA – MOTOROLA SOLUTIONS Dizengoff Ghana’s communications Division organized two weeks of training for its customers as well as its staff. The two training sessions which lasted a week at a time took place at the Holiday Inn Hotel, Accra and ended on 30th May 2015. As part of the training, Dizengoff Ghana brought in a Motorola trainer from Danimex in Denmark who facilitated the practical training course in Motorola Solutions on Advanced Digital MotoTRBO systems. Johnni Bundgaard, the trainer, labeled Motorola’s two-way radios as the standard to which others aspire to get to in terms of their robustness, reliability, efficiency, effectiveness, and safety. According to the General Manager of the Communications Division, Mr. Patrick Attia, “Training our staff and customers is a very vital part of the work we do here at Dizengoff Ghana because our work is not done if the customer is not well resourced to effectively and efficiently communicate as he should.” He added that timely and vital communications were a strong driving force of all industries and that Motorola radios are designed with a robust mix of features to increase workforce efficiency, productivity, and safety. The participants of the two training sessions, who are employees of Oil companies, Mining Companies, Security agencies as well as Non-Governmental Organizations, expressed their satisfaction with the practical and very informative nature of the training. They were hopeful and confident of their renewed ability to perform better in their various fields. ELECTRO MECHANIC DIVISION Dizengoff Ghana exhibits at a solar energy fair Dizengoff’s Chromagen Solar Water Heaters were put on display at a Solar Energy Fair held at the National Theatre in Accra. The three-day fair attracted both individuals and businesses looking to explore the endless opportunities that solar energy has to offer. One of Ghana’s biggest television networks was there to interview businesses and visitors alike and spoke to Dizengoff Ghana’s PR Manager who spoke passionately about the need to supplement power with renewable energy sources whether in our homes, schools or workplaces in order to reduce the reliance on hydro-electric power. The solar energy fair comes at a time when Ghana is going through a power crisis and many Ghanaians are therefore looking to invest in such renewable energy sources.
