Focus Areas

The private sector plays a critical role in building and strengthening economies. In order for the private sector to succeed, it’s important to make sure the institutions and systems that support it are working well.

This is where CESO comes in.

CESO focuses on both private sector development and strengthening institutions. Our Partnership Model is a multi-level approach that allows us to broaden and deepen our scope. Our partnership model operates at two levels:

1. Institutional partner level
2. Individual client level

We work with partners and clients to collaboratively determine their needs and the sequence of short-term assignments required to help them meet their goals. The model is both scalable and flexible, allowing us to adapt to the needs of our partners and their environments.

Tourism & Hospitality

From accomplished hoteliers and restaurateurs to senior tourism directors, CESO’s highly-skilled and experienced experts help support businesses navigate the competitive landscape of the sector.

Virtual Assignments

CESO strengthens our partners’ capacity through locally driven assignments delivered by CESO Advisors that provide training, mentoring and business and technical support. These advisory services may be delivered in country or remotely using the phone or the Internet, in what are known as virtual assignments.
