Highlights of the DICL Small Business Enterprises Workshop

CEO Domino Information Company LimitedThe Domino Information Company Limited (DICL) small business enterprises workshop has been more than a blessing to me personally, it presented me another opportunity to learn from much more experienced entrepreneurs and consultants and I say kudos to the DICL team for putting this together.

One thing was clear at the event;

….for any economy to develop, Micro, Small and Medium Scale Enterprises have to be supported and nurtured to grow, otherwise there will be no meaningful development for that economy.

The Small Business Enterprises workshop was very successful because of the quality of training and resource persons that delivered them.

Agenda for the 1st day of the event was as follows;

  • Planning Process
  • Previous year’s review of small business enterprises
  • Panel session on Finance and Human Resource Management

While I appreciated the presentation and past year’s review, I enjoyed the panel discussions most because it presented small business owners the opportunity to ask questions on issues that are bothered them most.

The panel discussion sessions featured 6 people; 3 for Finance and HR respectively:

Finance Panel discussion on financing your business plan had;

  1. Mr A. Sowunmi – Development Finance Directorate
  2. Mr Sonny Ekadayen – Bank of Industry
  3. Mr Sola Olubode – CEO, Money Com Micro Finance Bank

Small Business Enterprises

The panel discussion on HR management strategies for Small Business Enterprises had;

  1. Mr Emmanuel Etomi – Former, Head of Recruitment, Shell Nigeria
  2. Ms Aisha Maina – CEO, Aquarian Consult, Abuja
  3. Mr Dele Ajisebutu – CEO, Global Outsourcing Services Ltd

Small Business Enterprises

Both panel discussions were moderated by the CEO of Domino Information Company Limited, Mr Uzo Nduka.

It was a great event. We picked the brains of the discussants as much as we could and as always I learnt so much.

The workshop continues tomorrow, with the sole aim of helping all participants present to come up with at least the first draft of their business plans.

I intend to follow their guidelines to produce a business plan for an Internet start up idea currently being pursued by our team.

Trust me to post my experience after tomorrow’s session until then…. I have to go now.

If you would like to attend this event, then I suggest you call Onome on 08166263527 right away!

What’s the experience of being a Small Business Enterprises owner been like?

Special Invitation to Attend a Small Business Workshop Series

Uzo Nduka of Domino Information Company LimitedI urge you not to underestimate the importance of small business workshops, I strive to attend a number of workshops yearly especially if they are highly practical.

To this end, I wish to invite you to attend this highly practical and informative small business workshop organized by Domino Information Company Limited led by Uzo Nduka, a small business coach and strategist who has earned my respect!

Consider this….

On the 1st of January 2012 fuel subsidy was removed, workers went on strike, businesses were forced to shut down and many people went to the streets to protest. We are now in February and most micro, small and medium enterprise (MSME) operators are asking ‘’what next?’’. The ongoing banking sector reforms, Boko Haram and the cost of fuel are combining to make life difficult for MSMEs.

While we may never be able to know what is next, we can plan and prepare to adapt, to survive, to grow and to make profit in 2012.

The Domino Information Company Limited (DICL) team is very pleased to invite you to the 2012 Small Business Planning Workshop Series.

Date: 1st – 2nd March, 2012

Time: 8-30am to 4pm

Venue: Peninsula Hotel, Block 94, Plot 16, Beside Brass Motors, along Lekki-Epe expressway, Lagos.

Small Business

Please note that this Small Business workshop series is not your usual workshop and that you are not coming to receive a lecture from experts. It will be a hands-on and practical exercise and you will be working with peers and colleagues to create your own robust business plan for 2012.

Below are 3 Objectives driving the DICL Team

  1. It is time to run your business with precision and direction, spend 2days with us and have a business plan
  2. Show me a successful man, and I will show you a man with a plan, come get your 2012 Business Activity Plan
  3. Success in business is not by default, 2 days at this workshop will clearly show you the how, where and when.

Hear them: We promise that at the end of the workshop, every participant will leave the venue with their own 2012 Business Plan. A plan that will help you and your team remain focused on your business goals throughout the year.

DICL and her partner, Moneycom Micro Finance Bank, will provide the tools, technical expertise and other resources needed to achieve this. The Small Business Planning Workshop Series are backed by DICL money-back guarantee.
