UK grant to benefit PMB businesses

2007-11-22 00:00

The grant will be used to introduce the ProfitNet programme for small businesses to Pietermaritzburg, which has been chosen as the South African pilot site for the project. The programme will be launched this month and will run until June 2008.

Profitnet, which has been running very successfully in the UK for three years, is a Learning Networks programme that is designed to help business owners increase profitability and productivity, identify opportunities and current trends, gain practical competitive advantage, develop new products and services, improve skills and motivation and develop management skills, business planning, innovation and team working.

The scheme involves practical learning that is tailored to meet the needs of member companies.

There is no cost to participants. Local small business owners/directors who would like to be part of the programme can contact the local project manager Clare O'Neill on 033 260 5675.
