The inspired 13 with Trainer Dananjaya Hettiarachchi at centre at the conclusion of the two-month Training of Trainers program


In its bid to optimise on the company’s human resource potential, Citizen’s Development Business Finance PLC (CDB) crafted a unique talent development initiative by forming a panel of trainers tasked with equipping the CDB Team with progressive tools designed to stimulate continuous personal and organisational development. 

Conducted by globally renowned corporate trainer, Human Resource Development Specialist and Thought Leader, the World’s Number One Public Speaker as conferred by Toastmasters International Dananjaya Hettiarachchi, the 13 selected trainers of CDB gained a well-rounded training and development program founded on Hettiarachchi’s globally famed Connect, Engage & Inspire motivational strategy. 

The panel encompassing members from CDB team selected from both Sales and Operations, gained immense inspiration through this penetrative training & development (T&D) initiative which instilled some of Hettiarachchi’s specialised training areas including the permeation of HR best practices and frameworks currently in use in some of the most modern organisations in Sri Lanka and South East Asia. The two-month program organised by the CDB T&D team saw five of the 13 trainers gain the title of Mastery in Training. These were Chamath Siriwardena, Dassana Chandrananda, Lalith Peiris, Garry Reith and Ruchira Udayanath. Romesh Colombage gained entry into the Leadership category, while the other Trainers gained kudos for Excellence in Training. 

In CDB’s quest to possess a world-class team built on a platform of excellence whose competencies are second to none, the entirety of the T&D calendar is founded on sharp incisive knowledge gain that forms a strong foundation for personal development and achieving the organisation’s visionary goals. This Training of Trainers program’s learning content is now set to be delivered to all new recruits during their induction and also used in sales training.
