Description

You may have graduated with an academic degree in commerce, business administration, or attended some business conferences - but if you do not have an entrepreneur’s mindset, you are more likely to run your business based on transactional books. When you start a business for the first time, the first thing in mind is outlining the steps you will be taking, which is good - but what makes a good guide if you do not have the experience yet? 

Learn more from a group of recognised outstanding entrepreneurs who nourished the right way of thinking. This workshop will give you what makes an entrepreneur excel in terms of planning, execution, preservation, and progression.
