TRUSTED BY SOME OF SOUTH AFRICA'S BEST BUSINESSES

Over the last 15 years we have been privileged to build trusted partnerships with a wide range of businesses, from start-ups to listed companies

CREATING GROWTH THROUGH ACCREDITED AND CUSTOMIZED TRAINING

Almost every business owner knows that people are the most important asset and spend a great deal of emphasis on recruiting the ‘ideal’ candidate in order to build their talent base. Unfortunately, often the investment in people stops there.

Like most business owners, HR managers and Skills Development Facilitators, if you are having mixed feelings about training, the best place to start is with the topic most relevant to your employees: the knowledge and skills they need to do their job and add value to the business.

Business Made Simple’s in-depth accredited, customized and long term training solutions are based on our revolutionary straight forward approach towards people and business and provides a framework that supports the successful implementation of learning – from the owner and managers, to the junior members of the team.

  • “Working with Biz-Guru Group of companies has certainly paid off for me in the last 18months. When I started with Biz-Guru I was ready to close down my shops due to huge and continuous financial losses. I’m proud that at the end of this financial year I will be sitting on a small profit. Quite an achievement for a small business. I can therefore recommend executive coaching and mentoring to any small business owner.”

    Dr Gugu Gule, GG Boutique
  • “The most beneficial part for me was the knowledge, and steps we could use to make some positive changes.”

    Jennifer Gergis, Wink Promotions
  • “I would like to thank Business Made Simple for a beautifully presented session on Friday. The delegates have all been very complimentary and have all learned a lot. Please pass on our thanks to Michael as well!

    We look forward to working together with you in the future.”

    Robyn Brinckmann, Maragon Private School
  • “The most useful part was the knowledge and teaching to look inside myself – participating in activities in groups was very informative. Loved the dancing, clapping and exercise, wonderful!!”

    Elaine Vos, Nico Van Der Meulen Architects
  • “The greatest was seeing my staff take something out of the course and empowering me to think out of the box.”

    Paul Dreyer, Wink Promotions
  • “It most beneficial thing about the sales course was discovering the “incorrect” way of asking questions – especially in situations where one would be in a conversation with a client. The normal was of asking questions is not nearly enough in terms of setting required information from the client.”

    Nare Setati, Hamon SA
  • “The complete workshop in its own is as useful as it gets, whether for a new company or a company that has been with Biz-Guru Group of Companies for a while and just having a refresher course, all worth it. I enjoyed it very much, I realized how many “bad” habits I had fallen back to, yet also how many of them I had broken at the same time – job well done!

    I would recommend Biz-Guru Group of Companies to any company out there, from struggling ones right up to the companies that think they cannot do any better, believe me, Biz-Guru Group of Companies will show them a thing or two!”

    Shaun van Wyk, FloSolve
  • ” Truly thank you should come from me. You guys have helped me a lot, l have developed both professionally and personally.
    Thank you very much for hosting us as well …Food and drinks was good not forgetting the cake – brilliant.”

    Evans Nyajeka, Multitrade Distributors
