Workshop: (Jhb) Contracts, Proposals & Tender Documents – The How To – 23rd July 2014

Brought to you by Viljoen Consulting, Sisibukula, Business Engage (formerly Women In Finance)

Understanding the ‘small print’ can often be the difference between signing your life away with no reward and my personal favorite, signing your life away for great rewards. Accessing and completing tenders remains a mysterious area for most small businesses. Learn ‘how to’ ensure that the contract you sign is fair and with your best interests at heart and learn ‘how to’ complete and submit a tender so that you can participate in a lucrative sector of business in South Africa.

Using the practical skills that you will learn and understand, here in this powerful one day workshop, will enable you to make the system work for you, instead of you working for the system.  This will ensure that you apply for the opportunities that are best suited for you.

Understanding the pitfalls and how to avoid them by understanding your rights as well as your obligations will assist you in getting the right contracts in place and negotiate the best deal for yourself.

•    Changing your mindset
