Our Team


We have a crop of Facilitators that are highly trained and very experienced in training and organisation transformation methodologies, some of whom were trained by UN-ILO Turin Centre, Italy as Training and Organizational Transformation Consultants, and by the Institute of Cultural Affairs, among others.

HAGENS is a new organisation with Directors from different organizations who have applied the ToP methodology in different establishments both in public and private organizations and community-based groups. They have experienced transformations both in their personal lives and organizations e.g. The late Post-master General of NIPOST, Alhaji Argungu, confessed to us in 2002 that this programme that we executed for them in 1992/93 enabled them to build their huge headquarters in Abuja without government subvention or loan from anywhere!
