Whether you have a new business or one that has been operating for several years, many business owners struggle with understanding and applying essential business skills - forward planning, financial management, marketing and operational control.
This is why business skills training are a must for small business owners. Entrepreneurs usually start their business because they have a passion for the idea and a dream of what they want to achieve, but they usually don't have the same passion for the business management side of things.
Women Entrepreneurs of Saskatchewan offers a variety of business development seminars designed to teach women about different components of business and provide them with the tools to apply this information. Click below to view our upcoming Training Schedule, Let's Talk Business Sessions, Workshops and Webinars.
Descriptions of our Business Development Seminars:
Business Plan Development Workshop (6 week course)
Find out why every business owner needs a plan and how it will significantly increase your chances of success. A business plan is a critical tool for outlining the strategy and developing the tactics to manage your business. This document organizes the information derived from your research and explains how you will start and operate your business. This interactive six-part series is delivered one a week over six weeks and provides in-depth instruction on preparing each section of the business plan.
Topics include: Research and Exploration, Analysis and Evaluation, Introduction to Marketing and Pricing, Promotions and Marketing Plan, Operations Planning, Risk Analysis and Sales Forecasting and Financial Foundations. View the full details of the Business Plan Development Workshop.
One of the most crucial areas of your business is financial management and it is the one that most entrepreneurs struggle with, sometimes with dire consequences. Do you need help with understanding bookkeeping basics, financial statements and preparing cash flow projections? This seminar will take the mystery out of all of these and help you get a better handle on all things financial for your business.
It's not true that "if you build it, they will come"! Our Marketing Series will help you define your product or service from your customer's perspective and give you the tools to develop an effective marketing strategy around this perspective.
Human Resource Management Series
If your business has employees, then taking this seminar is critical to your success. We can help you navigate your way through the concepts and practical applications of the Recruitment, Retention and Compensation, Coaching, Discipline and Termination phases of being an employer.

"Women Entrepreneurs was a huge help in the start-up of our business. We had taken training through W.E. that consisted of their Financial and Marketing Series. As new entrepreneurs, and as young business women we had a huge learning curve, and W.E. gave us the tools and confidence needed to get a successful small business off the ground!" - Angela Klaassen & Karissa Ehalt, Imagine Wedding and Event Planning
