What's we've been up to? Corporate Planning Consultancies!

I apologise for not having this blog updated for a while. We have been busy conducting Corporate Planning consultancies for two Government Departments were also in discussion and have secured informal agreements with two local companies, Datec Fiji and Vt-Solutions, to collaborate on consultancies in the area of business continuity planning (BCP).

We have developed our own Strategic Planning and Business Continuity Planning models in-house from our various experiences and value-add by using professionals from outside our business to assist with our consultancies.

In addition to this, I have also been busy with my trustee duties for Unit Trust of Fiji. For our unitholders, we had declared some dividends that were paid out over the last two weeks.

If you require any assistance with Strategic or Corporate Planning and Business Continuity Planning for your businesses, please email us on info@gilbert.com.fj for our proposal and fee quote or call us on (679) 3342719 or (679) 9921427.
