After consulting in various institutions and working closely with teams, Charissa realised that although institutions have Integrity as their core value, many employees do not understand what it means to apply this value in their everyday life. Charissa extensively researched this topic to see if it can be trained and has consequently written her own training course, developed material and has been very popular giving talks on Radio and TV on developing Integrity.
