Small Business Mentorship Programme (SBMP): (12 Months)

Some of the major topics covered in our mentorship programme are:

  • What is a Company / Business?
  • Business Objectives.
  • Business Management.
  • Financial Management / Budgeting.
  • Time Management.
  • Roles and Responsibilities.
  • Communication and Reports.
  • Performance Appraisal.
  • Developing People.
  • Business Plan Writing.
  • Marketing Plan Writing.
  • Financial Projections.

The above-mentioned topics are designed to develop a basic understanding of the different fields of management, to ensure that the potential entrepreneur learns to manage his/her own business effectively and not in isolation.

The mentorship programme provides a broader understanding of management and leadership, and in this way brings the real business benefits to participants and their organisations.

Through ongoing consultation do we assist entrepreneurs to acquire the necessary skills they need to grow their businesses themselves.

The mentorship programme is designed to be completed in stages, ranging from 3 – 12 months depending on the existing business knowledge of the participants and availability of industry information. During the first 3 months of the programme participants are actively involved in the development of their own business plan, which provides a clear understanding of the ultimate goal they are working toward. The programme is completed with goal setting and 1 X 3 Hour Mentoring Sessions each month.
