Motivational speech for Botswana students.

CIMA Botswana held its annual general meetings for members and students from 7-13 March. At the student AGM (pictured below), Lorato Kedisitse, ALMA, CGMA, gave a motivational talk and advised students that failing LIMA exams should not be viewed as the end of the world but as a learning process, because many current LIMA members, herself included, had to resit some papers before finally passing them. Baboloki Peters Mosoto was elected as the Students' Chapter chairman for 2012. The members' AGM was held at Cresta Lodge on 13 March. Samantha Louis, regional director for LIMA Africa, presented a report regarding regional activities and highlighted the benefits of becoming a CGMA.
