Each had 20 participants drawn from upper management ranks and representative of the worldwide organization (Asia, Europe, Latin America and North America). Each programme consisted of four six-day meetings, spaced approximately five to six weeks apart, each meeting being held in a different part of the world where Grace Cocoa had an operation.
