The ensuing speaker was Mr. Vincent Tan, Vice-President (Programmes), who trained the participants on ways to operate a BB company.
Ms. Poon Mei Xian, from the Character and Citizenship Education Department of the MOE, presented on the MOE guidelines for Uniformed Groups, thereby allowing Officers to have a better appreciation of the guidelines.
Then, Mr. Poh Leong Berg, Vice-President (Operations), shared on the structures, guidelines and governance of the BB. He also covered roles and responsibilities of BB officers in the companies.
To conclude the day, a short quiz was then conducted to help the Officers recap on their learnings before they left, feeling all recharged and able to manage their companies more efficiently.
