Our intensive workstream to support businesses with Financial Management was a great success in Efate and Santo last year. So, we want to do it all again! The 4 day workshop program will be available to business license holders in Santo third week of November.
The program is run over a 3-month period. In the first week, clients attend four day long group workshops to learn all the basic skills, in the second month they attempt to implement these in their business with help from a finance coach, and in the third month, if they wish, they may attend some one-on-one coaching to get support with challenging parts of their implementation.
We encourage business owners, managers and/or supervisors of existing businesses that have been running for more than 3 years to apply. Click HERE to download an application form.
Please email this form to email@example.com or you can drop it off to Candyce Simeon, care of the Hotel Santo (VCCI’s temporary office location). Deadline for applications is on Friday, 3 November 2023.
Here’s our workshop schedule. Clients must attend each of these day long workshops.
