Build the Community by empowering the Individual!

Our Passion is developing "Teachers of Fishermen!"


The Trainer is the natural Mentor

On this exciting 4-day course, we deal with the TASK and the PROCESS of empowering people to start or improve their own businesses.

The TASK is fairly simple. It involves learning how to assist emerging entrepreneurs as they work through the 8 simple workbooks that make up the Micro-MBA. Delegates hoping to be certificated, must complete all the workbooks prior to the first day of this course.

The PROCESS deals with the principles that are needed to bring people from a place of dependence to independence and interdependence. 

We aim to produce well-rounded Economic Development Practitioners!


Expected Outcomes of the Trainer-Mentor course

  1. Delegates must demonstrate that they are confident and competent to offer the Micro-MBA course to their clients.
  2. They must be able to assess objectively, whether their potential client has a viable business idea.
  3. They must be able to follow a simple structure which enables them to assist someone who is having difficulties in their business.
  4. They must show that they understand how to do all of the above, without making their clients dependent on them.


More than 6 400 Trainer-Mentors since 1991!

We have become the experts at what does NOT work in development! We have also found some essentials that demonstrably work very well.

Lessons that we have learned are shared honestly and transparently with delegates on this course.

You don't live long enough to make all the mistakes yourself. Come and benefit from our 30+ years of experience in this arena.
