Participants’ interactivity

The training program is pretty much interactive with the trainers always seeking to find out how much the participants have learnt and also seeking their insights on the areas being covered. The nature of participants being that they come from different industries sees to it that there is much to learn among and between themselves and the trainers. The approach used by the trainers has seen the training become an insightful one in the areas covered which includes:

  • Marketing and Customer Service
  • Financial Management
  • Human Resources and Operations
  • Management
  • Business Planning

This is achieved through in-depth discussion of each topic discussed during the training. The encouragement by the trainers for participation by all sees the success of this a lot.  

Practical lessons

To complement the interactivity the practicality of the sessions is a feature that makes them even more special and a must attend for entrepreneurs. With laptops obtained by IFC available for the training sessions the participants are able to access the toolkit and follow the demonstrations by the trainers. The use of audio visual channels has made it a lot easy to follow the sessions and especially when it comes to access of the accounting tools available in the toolkit.

Networking among entrepreneurs

The need for networking among small business owners is fully satisfied through these training as they get to discuss a lot among themselves. It is amazing that they have even been able to conduct business within the time that they have been undertaking the training that started on the 17th of April 2012.

When is the next Training Workshop, there are no details of it. Yet I recently saw an advert on the back page of Nation newspaper, stating a date in October. The information is not upto date on this website and accessibility along with navigation is like going through a maze, trial and error to make your way around. With that how do you advocate creating efficient business cases with the TOOLKIT when this website itself has a lot to be desired of!! Please get the information and GUI and Indexing of data in order before you have SME's like us on your website.
