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

Internal Auditing

How is an Internal Auditor different from an External Auditor?
Well that is certainly a question that can be debated at length. It’s almost a case of which came first, the chicken or the egg?

Perhaps it would just be easier to tell you what an Internal Auditor does that will benefit you as an SMME (Small, Medium, Micro, Enterprise) or a VSE (Very Small Enterprise)

An Internal Auditor’s main function is to prevent loss. There are typically many different types of loss, such as loss of Money, loss of Stock, loss of Time, loss of  Productivity,
loss of a sale, loss of a client, loss of a staff member
 and so on.
They all affect the bottom line!

What about making the best out of what the VAT man has to offer, by getting yourself VAT registered, even when you don’t really qualify so that you can take advantage of all the VAT breaks? It’s called, simply, managing your VAT.

Or ensuring that you use the correct supplier procurement policy, in order to ensure that you wring the last cent out of your VAT input to get the best value out of being a VAT vendor? Did you know that the VAT man actually pays you to collect money on his behalf?
Yes he does and if your VAT is correctly managed it could mean between 3 and 6% added to your bottom line!

Having the correct, documented Business Administration and HR procedures and processes in place, will often be all that is required to deal with most of the areas in which a loss can and does occur, especially if the procedures and/or processes are monitored.

Ensuring that are consequences if the procedures are not followed, is tantamount to removing unwarranted emotion out of the workplace and will increase productivity in ways that you never dreamed of.

Viljoen Consulting is an Internal Audit and Business Administration Specialist Company, wholly owned and run by Nikki Viljoen.

Nikki has more than 30 years of experience in this field, having spent a number of years in the Corporate World, both in the Financial and Retail Sectors.
