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

Small Business Start-up Workshops

Tired of fighting my way through endless Red Tape, and understanding the New Business owners often have no idea where to go or what to do when starting a new business, I have written and developed a Practical Guide to Starting a Business  workshop.

The workshop covers an array of topics and as I learn more about the business of running a business, so I add to the workshop.The workshop deals with the everyday issues that arise when starting a new business. It will save you time and energy as well as money. Time in that you don’t have to spend time in queues trying to get the correct documentation, or doing research on the internet or anywhere else for that matter, trying to find out what you have to do and where you have to go in order to do it.It starts off with the difference between a Sole Proprietor, a Close Corporation and a Company and how to register each of these entities.The workshop covers all the contractual issues that need to be looked at and how best to structure them as well as all the basic legal compliance issues that need to be dealt with.
It looks at all the written procedures that should to be implemented in terms of maintaining your compliance, your administrative needs, your operational needs and your Human Resources needs.
Failure to have these in place could mean the difference between running a financially healthy business and always having a problem with cash flow due to the number of fines that you have to pay.

Banking and how accounts should be controlled and maintained is vitally important to a small business as is controlling your income and expenses – this is discussed in detail with many helpful hints being part of the information that is given.
The day to day administrative requirements, from raising an invoice to making a payment, to how to file the paperwork/virtual documents are discussed and practical advice on how to streamline the Administration is given in order to minimize time taken on administration.
Too much time taken on admin will have a negative impact on productivity and your bottom line.

Practical advise is given on staffing and HR issues and how to manage your staff and keep your dealings with them inside the letter of law.
taff management and/or lack thereof is one of the easiest ways to fall foul of the Labour Department and often huge amounts of time and/or money is used, purely because of ignorance.  The workshop covers many of these issues and assists in insuring that staff requirements are met and correctly managed.

Security/Safety issues around not only the staff, but also the business is discussed with useful tips being given on how to control and maintain an acceptable level of safety without having to spend a great deal of money.

For those companies that have stock – stock loss is one of the quickest ways to lose your soul – stock control and maintenance forms an in depth discussion and again practical tips on the  how to are given.

In an age and in a country where fraud and theft are par for the course, Money Laundering is discussed openly and a few of the current scams  are highlighted in order to bring you up to date on how not to become a victim.

Please remember that the workshop is a  living document, that will be changed from time to time, updated and expanded upon as and when new information comes to light and/or when legislation changes.
