Business Training

The training that we provide is a simulation based business skills development tool masquerading as a game that simulates real market conditions and business scenarios in the training room.
We are using a Business training course called “BEST” which stands for “Business Expenses Savings Training” which was developed by the South African Institute of Entrepreneurship (SAIE).

  • I have learnt the five steps of business, which are planning, purchasing, adding value selling and analysing. I have also learnt on advertising and that I need to do my business where more people pass and are able to view my products. I have benefited a lot from this training, because I will be able to plan well now, to know what type of customers I need to have and what I should spend and save.

  • Also I have learnt the importance of keeping records, and consulting when making decisions.

    Lucas –
  • Firstly I’d like to say WOW!

    In a space of a month I got to experience how it feels like running a business, I got to learn how to skillfully negotiate a good contract, keep records, know when to increase prices, know when to keep them at a  constant price and how to save. When I think of this course I then see how they made it relate to life as a whole especially the “life cards” but overall I should say it was a fun and exciting learning experience. I would now surely advise someone to take it, it will surely benefit them.

    Mmeli –
  • I learned about the Business Cycle.  There are 3 things that I understood during the training: Business capital, savings & home expenses budgeting. We have to budget and we have to put this into account when planning the customers, price & the place. With marketing I learnt that you should know the manufacturing price and the demand of your customers. The selling place can at home or in the market. But it is best at home when you are starting as you save on rent.In your business you have to persevere, to love your customers and also to fear God.  Also it is important that the business must help all the people. Every day you must keep the records and at the end do the analysis of your business.

    Gjylizare –
  • This training was a great help to me because I started a business before and it failed. So with Epic Solutions I learnt about the risk of business, and about “LifeCards” which taught things that happen in real life. Epic Solutions taught me a lot about planning and record-keeping. I realise that part of why my business failed before was because I was not doing those things. I also learnt that if things don’t work out then try an alternative. Really of you fail to plan then you plan to fail.

  • ·         The practical was very useful in helping to put into action what was learned.

    ·         There was a clear emphasis on understanding the business cycle as well as keeping records.

    ·         A clear notion of some variables that affect a business was introduced.

    ·         A lot was learned in a fun way and that really was the crown of the training course.

  • I have learnt that one have to make a budget for everything, keep personal money and business money separate. In order to run a good business you have to find the right place, advertise if possible, keep records for everything and see whether you are making a profit or not. I have enjoyed the course, it was fun and interesting. I think I have learned a lot and that will help me run a better business. Sometimes the business can’t go according to plan.
