“My name is Haruna Barry. I am Councilor for Kudang Ward and vice-chairman of Janjanbureh Area Council in Central River Region South, The Gambia.”
How did you learn about Alison?
I came across an Alison post on Facebook.
What was your first course on Alison, and why did you choose it?
My first course with Alison was on Conflict Management. The reason I chose this was because I am heading up an institution with 200 staff so I think it necessary to have skills in conflict management. This allows me to help my institution to deliver on expectations and to deliver services to the people we serve.
How have Alison courses affected your career?
The course gave me a new insight on how to respond to conflicts both at home and in the workplace.
What’s your favourite way to relax from studying?
I play football or go for a long run.
Where are you working now?
I am working as vice-chairman of Janjanbureh Area Council.
What’s next for you, in terms of education or work?
I want to continue learning with Alison and, after my tenure in office, I want to work as an Alternative Dispute Resolution coordinator.
If you could learn a absolutely anything in the world from an Alison course, what would it be?
It would a course on Psychology.
What would you say to someone if they asked you about Alison? Would you recommend it and why?
In term of learning professional skills, Alison is the best place to be.
