I am most delighted and wish to thank the Chairman of Council of the Botswana Institute of Bankers and, through you Mr Jaco Viljoen, the Managing Director of Capital Bank, and your fellow Council Members, for the invitation to be the Keynote Speaker at this 2017 Graduation and Awards Ceremony. At the onset, I congratulate the 2017 Graduants and Award Winners for this important milestone and achievement. I can imagine that there were many challenges on the way, including juggling one's studies with other social obligations, such as family and job obligations. As one motivational speaker said, "it is not your aptitude, but your attitude that determines your altitude". Congratulations to you all, Class of 2017!
