Leading business trainer, Vision 8 Academy Chief Visionary Officer (CVO) Amintha Sugath De Silva received the prestigious ‘Best Trainer of the Year’ award at the Business World International Organisation (BWIO) awards held recently at Hotel Taj Samudra, Colombo.

The BWIO Awards recognise and reward exceptional individuals and organisations for their spirit of business acumen and entrepreneurship, and the outstanding contribution to the business world. The Business Awards celebrate business excellence as a platform that provides inspiration to businesses and sets benchmarks for best practices. 

Amintha was rewarded  by BWIO for conducting training concept ‘Customer Relationship Management and Cross Selling’ to over 10,000 professionals in a single year to Banks, Finance Companies, Insurance Companies, FMCG›s, Hospitals in Sri Lanka and the Maldives. 

Amintha is an ex-banker with working experience at Sri Lankan banks, Commercial Bank of Ceylon, Sanasa Development Bank and Dubai, UAE Banks, Middle East Bank, Emirates Bank, Emirates and NBD Bank. 

He was trained in this concept by McKinsey & Company of USA, during his association with Emirates NBD Bank, Dubai, UAE from 1998-2008.

BWIO aims to recognise the success and vitality of the global business sector empowering both the local and international business community. The awards are the most prestigious annual event of the organisation honouring outstanding performers. 

This unique annual awards program has been established specifically to acknowledge, encourage and celebrate excellence amongst businesses and the community by giving them the opportunity to gain valuable exposure and well-deserved recognition for their ambitions.

The BWIO awards are the highest honour within the Asia-Pacific region. The main goal of the Awards program is primarily to help the Sri Lankan business sector to grow and prosper.

Customer Relationship Management (CRM) is a broad approach for creating, maintaining and expanding customer relationships. CRM is the business strategy that aims to understand, anticipate, manage and personalise the needs of current and potential customers in an organisation and build loyalty.

Over the years, Vision 8 Academy (V8A) has taken several initiatives to address these concerns and initiated programs on how CRM can be used by the present day Dynamic Banking and Finance Company employees to provide a superior customer service, while enhancing the capability to cross-sell financial services/products to their customers. Vision 8 Academy is headed by Visionary Entrepreneur Tissa Jayaweera PhD.
