South African cement expert Mike Fisher shared his knowledge with industry stakeholders
Mike Fisher, a South African cement expert, recently visited LafargeHolcim Tanzania’s Building Materials Centre to share his valuable insights and knowledge with cement industry stakeholders. Fisher is the Group Regional Support Head for the Roads Solutions Team at LafargeHolcim South Africa.
The purpose of Fisher’s visit was to engage with industry stakeholders about the many uses of cement, concrete and soil-stabilisation in road construction. The engineers and contractors that attended the sessions agreed that this knowledge-sharing practice is highly useful. Fisher was the guest presenter for the second Best Practice Sharing Session, held at the end of June 2019.
These sessions also presented a unique opportunity for networking between attendees. Over 60 people applied to attend Fisher’s talks and learn about the applications of cement for construction and soil-stabilisation in roads. Attendees stated that the sessions were interesting, helping and motivating. They were also pleased to have learned about Tembo cement products through the course of the sessions.
LafargeHolcim will host more Best Practice Sharing Sessions in the future. There is a need to share knowledge and create networking opportunities in the construction sector. This will benefit the Tanzanian economy and lead to the formation of strategic partnerships between cement manufacturers, contractors and the government.
