Business Workshop

We had a nice business workshop last week, after one of zanzibits supporters from Holland, Jaak Aquarius, introduced a lesson on how to establish a profitable business, when the business idea workshop started.

The students divided into 4 groups and each group was facilitated by one trainer, every group was supposed to "think outside the box" to come up with four business ideas.
Then choose one that works best for the whole group and come up with a creative name and then to present the idea to the other groups.

Every group worked hard to make sure that they selected the best idea, everybody learned that for a person to establish a business he/she must understand Excels calculations, so that you can plan a budget and make a profit.

It was a big challenge and was difficult but,with help from Jaak, every group succeeded and came up with exact calculations.

Finally, the students presented their work and also improved their presentation skills because most of them were only reading from the screen instead of facing the audience.

It was a very interesting workshop and hopefully, everybody learned things that they could use for the rest of their lives.
