Skills seminar to be held

IQHAZA Leadership Centre will be hosting a skills development seminar at the Port Shepstone Civic Centre on 30 January, starting at 10am until 4pm.

Sanele Mkhize of Iqhaza said the aim of the seminar is to change the mindset of people when it comes to employment and creating jobs with their skills.

“We want to change the mindset of people, especially those who believe that you have to be employed to make a living. We are speaking more to graduates, professionals and matriculants who have acquired skills, whether its in school, university or at work,” said Mkhize.

He said people tend to relax once they find employment not knowing there is still growth ahead, especially by taking those skills they have acquired and starting their own business.

“For example, we have people who studied IT who are sitting at home waiting to be employed by some company. If qualified you can actually start fixing your neighbour’s computers at home and start earning an income, rather than wait to get a job,” he said.

At the seminar guests will talk about how they can change their lives by starting their own businesses.

“We have business owners - local and those from neighbouring cities - who will share their stories and give advice on how one changes one’s mindset.

Thobe Ndlovu, Thobethulani Trading owner, who is also in the property industry will be there, Cynthia Taylor, who owns a boutique and Scelo Mzimela of Durban, who is in the food industry and who is making it big and many others, will be there,” said Mkhize

The South Coast community is invited to attend the seminar. Tickets cost R100 before the day and R120 at the door.
