Thirty eight delegates from all sectors of the global cotton industry have successfully completed our annual training programme, Complete Cotton and they rated it top marks.
The training took place last month in Liverpool, UK, where 21 industry experts delivered a series of 21 training modules that covered the complexities of the cotton industry, from growing to spinning and everything else in between. Angela Rottenberry, a Contract Control Manager working in Singapore for Louis Dreyfus Commodities, was one of the delegates to benefit from the training:
“I wanted to learn more about the cotton industry as a whole and this training does that. The quality of the presentations are ‘super good’ and so is the group interaction. I would definitely recommend it and, no matter what you do in the industry, whether you are a spinner, a ginner or a trader, you will gain from doing the course.”
Another delegate to benefit wrote this on their feedback form: “Complete Cotton has REALLY exceeded all my expectations…a great life experience…vast knowledge and a solid set of friends to do business with, hopefully for a long time.”
During the training the delegates got the opportunity to network, socialise and take in the sights of Liverpool. They attended a number of specially sponsored events, including dinner at the Maritime Museum – at Liverpool’s UNESCO waterfront site, a trip to Anfield – home to Liverpool Football Club and a visit to Quarry Bank Mill – founded in 1784 and now restored as a fully working cotton mill and museum.
Speaking after the event, Kai Hughes, ICA Managing Director said: “Complete Cotton remains one of the industry’s major training programmes and over the years it has provided an excellent grounding for many of today’s key players in the cotton world. “This year’s course was another sell-out and with 100 per cent of the delegates rating the training as ‘excellent/good’ we can safely say that it was a great success. If you are involved in the cotton industry, in whatever shape or form, my advice is to sign up for next year’s course.”
