Partnership agreement with KPMG Auditores e Consultores
(May 12, 2016) – PECB is honored to announce that it has signed a new partnership agreement with KPMG, to distribute PECB training courses in Mozambique. This partnership will ensure that the respective companies will give their contribution based on their expertise in offering and organizing PECB training courses. 
“We are very excited for this agreement, and we promise we will provide our full-time services and best efforts on behalf of this partnership,” said Eric Lachapelle, CEO of PECB. “We believe that working with KPMG is a great opportunity to provide our services for people in Mozambique, and extend our network of professionals. KPMG has demonstrated its commitment to building its presence in Mozambique, and that is very important for this agreement,” added Lachapelle. 
“KPMG Mozambique places great value on this partnership and sees this partnership as a significant ‘building block’ in developing the Mozambican business leaders of ‘tomorrow’. Historically, quality training courses in Mozambique has been reserved for a very few, but, with this partnership, we see an opportunity for the net to be cast wider and to now include professionals that previously may not have had the opportunity to participate in the caliber of courses as offered by KPMG. Given the language barrier, success with internationally accredited business courses has always been difficult for Mozambican business leaders to obtain, but, given these courses will be conducted in Portuguese, we see it as a removal of a major hurdle. With this partnership, KPMG Mozambique will be the first professional services firm licensed to provide internationally accredited courses in Portuguese; we are very excited about this!” Said Miguel Alvim, Advisory Managing Partner at KPMG Auditores e Consultores.
