he Robin Hood Foundation’s Entrepreneurs 4 Africa Conference, which took place over two days at City Hill Church, was filled with positive insights.
Over 1000 aspirant and existing entrepreneurs were trained, inspired and mentored by top class speakers, trainers, and experienced business owners.
Headline sponsor, global supply chain and logistics solutions provider, CHEP, believes that anyone can be an entrepreneur and everyone should be given the opportunity.
“As a responsible business, serious about upliftment and transformation, we are honoured to have been a part of a community-led solution that addresses the difficulties of job creation and skills development,” said Nomathemba Mhlanga, senior sustainability manager of CHEP IMETA (India, Middle East, Turkey and Africa).
The free conference covered numerous topics, including: entrepreneurship and business idea generation, communication skills, customer service, marketing, networking and sales skills.
Delegates came from as far as Johannesburg and the Transkei and the overall feedback has been overwhelmingly positive.
Founder of The Robin Hood Foundation, Cindy Norcott, said, “It is our belief that many people in South Africa would make successful entrepreneurs if they had more knowledge, skills, a bigger network and access to more opportunities. We are so grateful to all our sponsors and community connectives for helping to make this educational conference such a success. To know that we have reached over 1000 delegates with this conference and equipped, upskilled, motivated and inspired them to grow their businesses or business ideas, is hugely rewarding.”
