“Mind Your Busi­ness” - A De­vel­op­ment Se­ries

The Star (St. Lucia) - - LOCAL -

The St. Lu­cia Youth Busi­ness Trust, in con­junc­tion with the Saint Lu­cia Cham­ber of Com­merce, In­dus­try and Agri­cul­ture, will soon host the “Mind Your Busi­ness” De­vel­op­ment Se­ries 2017. Specif­i­cally de­signed for mi­cro, small and medium sized en­ter­prises on the is­land the “Cost­ing and Pric­ing” mod­ule is highly ac­claimed as it high­lights im­por­tant, crit­i­cal and of­ten­times ig­nored prac­ti­cal mea­sures that can be ap­plied im­me­di­ately by par­tic­i­pants.

The “Mind Your Busi­ness” De­vel­op­ment Se­ries has been specif­i­cally de­signed to pro­vide crit­i­cal busi­ness man­age­ment skills and knowl­edge to small busi­ness. The pro­gramme, de­liv­ered by ex­pe­ri­enced and knowl­edge­able pro­fes­sion­als and ex­perts in their spe­cific field, gives prac­ti­cal guid­ance and skills that par­tic­i­pants can ap­ply im­me­di­ately in their busi­ness.

The ob­jec­tive of the de­vel­op­ment se­ries is to help SMEs im­prove their op­er­a­tions, and de­liver ef­fec­tive and high­im­pact job skills at a low cost. All fa­cil­i­ta­tors are them­selves own­ers and op­er­a­tors of SMEs. The fa­cil­i­ta­tors have agreed to sup­port this pro­gramme by as­sess­ing min­i­mal fees that are passed on to par­tic­i­pants. This en­sures that key skills and knowl­edge trans­ferred through the de­vel­op­ment se­ries re­mains af­ford­able for the young en­tre­pre­neur and the SMEs on the is­land.

“Cost­ing and Pric­ing” will be fa­cil­i­tated by Mr. Ben­jamin Me­nald, a pri­vate con­sul­tant with over 30 years of ex­ten­sive ex­pe­ri­ence in fi­nan­cial plan­ning anal­y­sis, strate­gic plan­ning and cost­ing and pric­ing, who con­tin­ues to give back to the com­mu­nity. The course will take place in June (26th and 27th) and July (3rd, 4th, 6th and 7th) at the Saint Lu­cia Cham­ber of Com­merce, In­dus­try and Agri­cul­ture’s con­fer­ence room.
