Vegpro are one of the leading horticultural companies in Kenya. Through VP Floriculture and VP Food they are at the forefront of fresh produce, flowers and logistics. Employing over ten thousand people on both their farms and in their pack houses, they realize the benefits of a happy and committed work force.

In January 2012 Vegpro partnered with Emerging Leaders to introduce Leadership Training for workers in their pack house. A hundred people from different areas of the pack house were invited to attend the three day training that was held in Nairobi.

Arete was asked to document this training as well as other areas of Vegpro’s engagement with their workforce.

A film was produced that documented the tangible benefits of the leadership training and a series of photographs were taken that have been used widely for Vegpros’s internal and external marketing.

The results of the initial training far exceeded everyone’s expectations.
As a result a year later, Emerging Leaders, in partnership with M&S, held another leadership workshop in Nairobi – this time for 400 people. These participants came from across the M&S supply chain.

Arete was asked to make a follow up film to the one they had made last year. The film was shown at the annual M&S Plan A Conference in London on June 13th and will be used by Emerging Leaders to promote their work
