“Many business owners here in Lae like to think that they are a small business and so could not expand, thus they limit themselves growing their business and providing employment for the city population,” Mr Willmot said.He said during the workshop, participants were given tips on how they can be leaders rather than managers.

He said during the workshop, participants were given tips on how they can be leaders rather than managers.“We want all businessmen to be leaders, people who set the examples and the benchmark for others to follow. When you are a manager, you will always opt to stay within your operational budget, thus you limit yourself from expanding your client base and your own development in terms of skills and character,” Mr Willmot said.

He cited logistics and trucking giant Mapai Transport, saying, such was a success story that has set the benchmark for all businesses in Lae.

“We want to see more businesses follow Mapai’s success so that in the long run, our communities can benefit,” Mr Willmot said.

According to CPA PNG, they have hosted one workshop in Port Moresby where Mr Willmot was a speaker, and in August this year, he will be back to offer the business community of Lae another chance at improving their business and making the necessary improvements now rather than later.
