A selection of comments and reviews from the over 170 student who took this course since launch in August 2020
"This course has been an eye opener. It generated real measurable leads that opened new doors for the work I do in the field of women empowerment. I used the learnings of the course to generate conversations that allowed me to take my work on an international scale. The best part? A lot of the work is setting the structures up and once they are up they just work seamlessly" — Tamar Goren, The Pleasure Journey
This course is for: / People with a business idea or early stage startups with close to zero or just a handful of clients. / For small and medium sized businesses (also known as SMEs) / For professional service providers (eg. lawyers, accountants, doctors, architects, website developers, etc). / For people who are struggling to get a foot in the door after a long time looking for economic opportunities.
This is not a course on closing sales or improving your negotiating skills. It is not a social media marketing strategy course nor a pricing your services and products course. It is also not a sales team management course.
Since launching in August 2020 over 3.800 people have taken the course and the feedback has been phenomenal, with entrepreneurs thanking how it changed their lives.
Yes and no. The course was developed around York Zucchi's global expertise in this subject (access to markets). He has done over 500 workshops, lecturing engagements, speaking events and webinars around this topic and helped SMEs in over 83 countries. He had worked with organisations and governments on developing SME support ecosystems and has learned a lot of what works and what doesn't for entrepreneurs. That knowledge is distilled into this course.
The course is designed to be accessible, free from jargon and highly practical. Just about every lesson is created with the aim to have an outcome at the end of the lesson that can be applied immediately to your business and start generating leads for you. The lessons teach you the theory, explain why and then show you - via video and text - how to implement that knowledge immediately to your advantage.
The course is designed so that all you really need is a tablet/laptop/computer (though a few students have actually done it via their phones... bless them!) and pen and paper. You won't be asked to buy anything or use any tool, software or app that requires any investment. You will learn to use technology to your advantage at no extra cost to you.
