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).

Testimonials

  • I thought the course was extremely well presented. The presenters were enthusiastic and came across as very experienced and knowledgeable. I enjoyed the fact that it was presented in a cross-cultural environment which helped us to see things from each other’s perspective. The manner of presentation –the game- made the learning so easy and so much fun and yet what we learnt was so sound and useful. The practical was amazing for me – and not something I would ever have tried if I had not done the course. I was WAY out of my comfort zone. But it really taught me so much and grew me as a person as well as teaching me business skills.

  • For this course, I learn how to run a business and to save money, even to negotiation to the customer. Negotiate a good deal because when you run a business you have to know good and bad prices. This term is very good because we also know how to plan our business. Before you buy you have to plan first. Then when you finish to plan you start to buy material. Then you start your business. It is what I’m learn.

  • My name is Florence Kunkundiye and I would like to say what I have learned from this course. First of all I have learned that during the business, he/she has to record each of the movement that is happening during the business. During the business also, we have to use money well like saving in the bank without keeping it at home because the moment the whole money is home, it is possible to use it in a bad way and we never know what will come tomorrow or more future. To do a business, we have also to plan it well in terms of looking where he/she is going to put the business and use well the products how she/he make relationship with customers, use the price well so that customers are exchange money due to the value of the product, promotion is also important. As my conclusion, this course was so important to me because I have learned a lot from it.

  • 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.
