Entrepreneur conference inspires

2016-08-02 06:00

THE Robin Hood Foundation’s Entrepreneurs 4 Africa Conference was held on 12 and 13 July at City Hill Church, Hillcrest. More than 700 aspirant and existing entrepreneurs were trained, inspired and mentored by speakers, trainers, and experienced business owners.

The free, two-day conference covered numerous topics, including business ethics, success stories, managing money, ideas generation, basics of bookkeeping, business plans, marketing on a budget, business legalities, pricing and costing, business etiquette, ethics, customer service, goal setting and motivation.

Delegates came from as far as Richard’s Bay and Ndwedwe and the overall feedback has been overwhelmingly positive.

Founder of The Robin Hood Foundation, Cindy Norcott, says: “It is our belief that many people in South Africa would make successful entrepreneurs if they had more knowledge, skills, a bigger network and access to more opportunities.
“We are grateful to our sponsors and community connectives for helping to make this educational conference such a success. To know that we have reached over 700 delegates with this conference and equipped, upskilled, motivated and inspired them to grow their businesses or business ideas is hugely rewarding.”
