The successful entrepreneurship program run by Growing Hands, is back for 2015. The program has been a success for two years. The organisers attribute the success as follows:

These training sessions are designed to increase your sales, improve your bottom line profitability, enhance your financial acumen and most importantly, position your business for growth. They will present winning ideas, deliver interactive training and provide coaching to assist you with practical and implementable business solutions.
