Hello Nikki

I wonder if you remember me – a colleague from Business Masters.

I just wanted to drop you a line to tell you that I find value in your blog. I (like no doubt everyone else) get inundated with stuff to read, and it becomes a matter that one is forced to pick and choose what newsletters, blogs and sites one interacts with (or merely just reads). I just wanted to reach out with a friendly greeting to tell you that I actually have begun to read your blog regularly. Well done, and thank you for the effort you put into it. I don’t always agree with what you write, and seldom have the time to formulate a cogent counterargument, but it never fails to be thought provoking and thereby stimulates growth.

 

Thanks and Greetings

I have had the opportunity to work with Nikki Viljoen for a number of years, in my capacity as both Head of Enterprise Development at Standard Bank and CEO of Enterpriseroom.

In both situations, we called on Nikki to support the emerging enterprises we had brought onto our Enterprise Development  programmes. Nikki always worked very well with the enterprises and their owners, and is fastidious about making sure they understand, and properly tackle, the compliance, systems and administrative challenges businesses face.

We have also used Nikki’s training sessions and workshops as they provide useful, concise and practical tools to deal with issues facing start ups and SMMEs.

Importantly, Nikki is reliable and cares a great deal about her work and her clients.

Yours faithfully

Nikki and I met towards the end of 2008 during a formal network meeting.  We both attended these meetings for our respective businesses and got to know each other during these meetings and individual meetings between ourselves.

Nikki is well known among her peers and the businesses that participate in these network events.  Nikki and her business are respected by the business owners attending these meetings and her professional opinion were often asked and listened to.   Nikki is renowned for her professional service to her clients and most important her very honest manner she communicate to her clients what they need to know and do to make their business compliant.

My interactions with Nikki was not just business but I also got to know her as a friend and met with her socially as well.  Her character trait that truly impressed me is her compassion for people that truly need support in terms of emotional support and frank objective advice.

I consider Nikki a friend, a colleague and someone that will always be honest with anyone but not lose her compassion.  I will and have referred clients to Nikki with confidence and will carry on doing so.

TOURISM ENERPRISE PARTNERSHIP WORKING RELATIONSHIP WITH VILJOEN CONSULTING

The Tourism Enterprise Partnership (TEP) is a 13 year old Non-Profit Company (NPC) that utilises funding from Corporate South Africa and Government to facilitate the growth, development and sustainability of small tourism businesses in South Africa with the aim of Job Creation, Transformation and Sustainability.

Through knowledge gained over a number of years, TEP devised a strategy to improve the way in which we analyse our small tourism business clients. The aim was to thoroughly understand the individual businesses – its strengths, opportunities and weaknesses in order to create an impactful tailor-made development plan.

TEP identified Nikki Viljoen as a business analyst specialist and contracted Viljoen Consulting to assist us with the creation of a Development Needs Analysis (DNA) in 2011. Nikki’s development and alignment of relative questions and delivery, within sometimes unrealistic deadlines, was superb. Nikki not only has incredible knowledge regarding business operations, legalities, finances, etc. but also has excellent intuitive insight into the entrepreneur themselves.

Nikki is obviously passionate about people and business development and her strongest attribute is a no-nonsense attitude. She went above and beyond the contract in ensuring that we have the necessary understanding of how and why to conduct a successful needs analysis. Her guidance and advice has made a definite difference in TEP and her networking skills, and sharing those networks with TEP, is just another example of her dedication and passion.

TEP highly recommends working with Nikki and Viljoen Consulting and would make use of her services, without a doubt, if and when possible in the future.

Please feel free to contact me should you require more information.

Kind regards

Business Sophistication Assessments

There is no lack of SMMEs and/or Entrepreneurs with brilliant ideas for services and/or products.There is no lack of SMMEs and/or Entrepreneurs with an abundance of passion and heart.

What there is a lack of is SMMEs and/or Entrepreneurs with the knowledge and/or experience to run a business.
Does this mean that SMMEs and/or Entrepreneurs are stupid? Of course it doesn’t! It just means that they are not properly informed.
It means that they concentrate more on the sales than on the back office and this will ultimately mean that deliverables will not be met, staff troubles will sprout and they may even lose control of the financial aspect of the Company.
Small business owners and entrepreneurs are expected to grow the economy, yet it is these same small business owners and entrepreneurs who have to deal with the same red tape (and usually at the same cost) as the big corporate companies.
At the same time, very few small business owners and/or entrepreneurs know where to go to get the information that they need in order to run their businesses professionally and in so doing assure themselves of  sustainable development and growth in their businesses.
Viljoen Consulting CC has developed a holistic Assessment Questionnaire that covers all the need to know type issues that most SMME’s and/or Entrepreneurs would not even think of.
Issues such as Legislative requirements, to Occupational Health & Safety requirements, BEE requirements and Employment Equity requirements and the every present reality check on issues around the Labour Relations requirements are dealt with.
Putting this together with very practical questions that deal specifically with the Administration and Operational requirements of any sound business, this Assessment highlights all the possible problems that may be encountered by SMMEs and/or Entrepreneurs who traditionally have very little understanding of the nuts and bolts of how a business should be run.
Once highlighted, Viljoen Consulting CC gives practical solutions and suggestions to all the issues that need to be rectified.
detailed report is compiled for the Business Owner to use as a check list to correct and/or put practical policies, procedures and templates in place, which will build a strong foundation from which a sustainable business can be built.
Don’t be caught like an Ostrich with its head buried in the sand, because you know that things are not quite right, but don’t know where to start looking or even what you will find.
Be proactive and take charge of your business.
Take an hour and a half to two hours to have the Assessment done, find out what your problems are and then start working on the solutions provided – one at a time. Empower yourself and take charge of your business and watch it grow from strength to strength.
