“We understand that Ms Magola is retiring from the bank and we would like to announce that we will specially honour her with a trophy during this year’s lake conference. ‘Aunt Annie’ has contributed a lot to the profession,” said Banda.
Magola said she was honoured that CIM will recognize her contributions to the marketing profession.
“When they start calling you ‘Aunt Annie’ then you should realize that maybe it’s time to pack and go!” joked Magola while accepting the invitation to attend the lake conference.
