AGILE Inside.This has been a long time dream being made manifest. The name has changed or evolved over the years, the team, the strategy but never the intent. So, from “One Accord” through “Inception,” to where it is right now, the more things change, the more they remain the side. Two things come to mind consequently… This is a generation whose time has come and also, delay is not denial.
The season is upon us and LOVE is in the air. But, we must not forget the celebration of the achievements and contributions of those that have gone before, as well as those who are deserving of honour, even now.
