Description

IF YOU ARE A YOUNG WOMAN–AGED 16 TO 21–WHO WOULD LIKE TO EXPLORE THE IDEA OF BEING YOUR OWN BOSS ONE DAY, THIS IS THE WORKSHOP FOR YOU!

Together we’ll explore what it really means to be a business owner, what core skills you’ll need to run your own business successfully, and the pathways that are available for you to get started.

WHO IS THE WORKSHOP FOR?

  • For young women aged 16-21.
  • You may be a high-school student thinking about choosing options for next year or evaluating further education choices.
  • You may be at college or university learning a skill you’d like to develop into your own business once you’re finished.
  • You may still be experimenting with work or education options and just want to learn more about small business ownership.

WHAT’S THE FORMAT?

  • A FREE 2 day workshop taught over the weekend of the 13th and 14th of October 2018 (10 am - 4 pm each day) for young women aged 16 to 21.
  • There will be classroom teaching, interactive activities, and video contributions from real women business owners to bring the teaching to life.
  • We’ll provide a course booklet for you to take away, and lunch and refreshments each day.
  • We’ll also provide opportunities for you to follow up with us to discuss next steps if you’re ready to start a business once we are done, so our support doesn’t end on Day 2.

DURING THE CAMP, WE’LL:

  • Get specific about the 3 different hats the business owner wears: the manager, the creator, the entrepreneur.
  • Investigate the concept of the Sales Funnel, and how interested prospects turn into die-hard fans.
  • Examine the marketing process: what it is, why and how it works, and how to lay the groundwork to successful strategies.
  • Consider the crucial role of customer service to the success of any business, and how often, it is the first thing you should think about before launch.
  • Hear from real female business owners, to find out how these 4 pillars have helped them develop a successful and stable business.
  • Throughout the weekend, we’ll also explore the different pathways you can take to start your own business, whether fresh out of high-school, via a university or vocational training, or after a few years of work experience.

AFTER THE CAMP, YOU’LL BE READY TO:

  • Choose high school options or make good further education choices to give you the best possible skills to move into business ownership.
  • See through the barriers to success which are often placed in front of young entrepreneurs.
  • Decide whether small business ownership is something you want to investigate further.
