It is so important to focus on the things that money can’t buy. I want to encourage you on this path of growth and development and ask that as you evolve, that you keep the core values that have made this company a thriving one”, said the Governor-General.
He highlighted the fact that the company has been supporting the Governor-General’s Achievement Awards programme since its inception. “We are very pleased that the Office of the Governor-General can associate with VMBS in acknowledging our community heroes”, noted Sir Patrick Allen.
