Time: 9am – 12:00pm

It is no secret that many of the intended beneficiaries of B-BBEE are not accessing any gain from it, and barely know what the policy, and its potential benefits are. This workshop therefore aims to correct this showing these potential beneficiaries what the benefits of B-BBEE can be, and how to access them.

The Workshop
The format of the training covers the following topics:
  1. A brief introduction to B-BBEE and the seven elements of the scorecardHow B-BBEE affects different size enterprises
  2. What is Enterprise Development?
  3. Who qualifies as an ED Beneficiary?
  4. What are the benefits?
  5. How to position yourself as an ED Beneficiary
  6. How to position yourself as a supplier of goods and services
  7. Getting a scorecard

About the Facilitators - Enterpriseroom
Enterpriseroom focuses on three main activities:
  • Helping smaller companies improve their businesses by developing strategies to access B-BBEE benefits, and matching them to the needs of our larger corporate clients. We call them our “Enterprise Promotion Partners” (Small, black-owned companies can be both qualifying enterprise development beneficiaries and B-BBEE suppliers, which becomes a huge incentive for large corporates to procure from them, and assist them in reducing their operational costs).
  • Working with large corporations in developing strategies for improvement of their B-BBEE Scorecard, with special emphasis on Preferential Procurement and Enterprise Development
  • Training of small black owned businesses on the benefits presented by the Codes of Good Practice on B-BBEE, and coaching those businesses in repositioning themselves and approaching customers.
