The Global Education Network (GEN) Certificate in Family Business Advising (CFBA) by the Family Firm Institute (FFI) is a certificate presented to individuals who have achieved comprehensive professional knowledge and gained significant expertise valuable to family business and family wealth clients.
According to the FFI, the Certificate in Family Business Advising is designed to increase awareness and exposure to concepts, skills and knowledge necessary to optimize effectiveness as family business advisors and consultants.
While commending Saba and other recipients, President of the Family Firm Institute, Judy Green, said “through completion of the certificate program, Abdullahi Jubril Saba has gained a deeper understanding of the needs of family-owned enterprises and the many roles family business and non-family members play.”
Saba is a proven leader who reached HR Director level in a leading telecommunications company with global operations. Having been thrust into a high-pressured leadership role at an early stage of his career, he honed his leadership development skills at HR Director level and acquired an uncommon understanding of business operations in the telecoms sector.
He is regarded as a very credible, business savvy HR Leader that can be relied upon to make optimal people decisions for the business. Based on this experience, Jubril joined Afrissance, an organisational development firm as a Practice Lead for the Leadership Development and Coaching practice where he is able to offer his experience, knowledge and skills in building leaders that will fuel the growth of the continent in the immediate future.
