The past week was hectic. After the hard work of preparing and facilitating the SME BusinessLink Seminar which took place on 12th May, I was invited to attend a four day Train-the Trainer workshop, which was organised by the Zimbabwe Agricultural Competitiveness Program. I must say it was an excellent and program, designed to equip us with techniques and approaches for better delivery of technical material for the purpose of providing market driven training to targeted commercial farmers and agro-business firms so as to enhance their competitiveness.
It was also a great opportunity to meet other consultants and professionals in business and entrepreneurship services. No doubt we will work together in order to support and help each other as we endeavour to improve our offerings to entrepreneurs and SME owners.
The BusinessLink Seminar has already produced some awesome results. I have been getting positive feedback from SMEs managed to agree to start doing business with each other. That’s one of the benefits of networking, you get to meet potential customers and trustworthy service providers.
