Last network for 2019, With Sylvia Walker.

Topic: Balance for Better – getting the numbers right

Synopsis:

What’s the secret to having it all? It’s not abundant wealth, as we are told so often. It’s about balance in our lives and working with what we have. Understanding where money fits in, and knowing how to balance today with tomorrow, because decisions made today has a direct impact on our lives tomorrow. Some of the burning issues are:

– What are the distractions that keep us focused on today?
– How do we free up money to invest?
– Should we pay off debt first before investing?
– How much should we be investing?
– Where should we be investing?

Sylvia will discuss these, and any other issues raised, in a simple, straightforward way, cutting through the jargon and smoke and mirrors that is so prevalent today.

How to WIN at Buisness, our topic for October at Avontuur Business Club with Lindie Malan.

“How To WIN at Business” 

Your business is your “vehicle of choice” towards your desired future…

Some real questions all business owners should ask themselves…

How will my business look when it is done? Do I have an exit strategy? Will I be able to sell my business? Can we expand or will I be able to hand over and exit?

Are you exhausted by running your business, challenged by crisis management, cash flow issues and managing an ineffective team?

Lindie’s life purpose is to work with business owners to address these questions and other business challenges so that they can win at the game of business!


Lindie is an experienced entrepreneur, business owner, business coach and event speaker. Her 25-year journey in business includes involvement in a family business, a partnership and several successful start-up business ventures.”Being a business owner taught me a few hard lessons like perseverance, to focus and to understand the importance of building a business with real value. Giving up on myself, my goals and dreams has never been an option. I lead from the front and I am congruent in everything I teach and coach my clients!”Lindie’s love for business, her belief in the power of coaching and her drive to change the way entrepreneurs do business, led her to become an ActionCOACH business coach. She has coached more than 100 business owners in various industries on many levels towards achieving significant business results.

Understanding the cost of advertising, Business breakfast topic with Chrisitelle Lochner.

Understanding the cost of advertising:

Most of us have a love-hate relationship with advertising, because we have no clue which avenues are the best to choose from.

Between printed media, pay-per-click, direct marketing and vehicle or shop signage, it can be confusing to figure out which would be most valuable.

The aim of this talk is to help you to understand how to break down the cost of each of these types of advertising into a cost per impression, and help you to understand which are most likely to generate sales for your business now and over time

Business Breakfast with Jean Muir, this August at Avontuur.

Join us for our next Business Breakfast with Jean Muir who will be covering all things financial…
She will spend time giving you pointers in financial planning and how it ties into your business financials.
Specifically:
– Budgeting
– Paying me (the entrepreneur, you)
– How to safeguard my assets
– What’s this thing called risk cover
– Why we build relationships with financial advisors
 
 
Please bring a pen and paper, make sure you know how much you are currently earning. (If it varies, take the average of the last 6 months.)
Why come to meet Jean? She says ;
 
When I started as a young financial advisor, I had dreams to cure poverty and to assist everyone with their financial future. However, I was hard struck when I realised poverty is only part of our problems. Our health is a bigger issue.
 
I quickly learned that life throws us with curveballs we don’t expect. Most of us don’t believe it will happen to us and then we try and put our life together piece by piece.
 
My life mission is to assist my clients, family and friends by asking them the questions most of us don’t want to comprehend or think about.
 
I assist you with holistic financial tips, starting with how does a budget work, how we pay off debt and how we know our biggest asset is secured should we get the bad news.
 
If you would like tips on how your reality can be changed, how you can think about your business and personal finance this morning is for you.
 
I am looking forward to hosting you.’
Please note there is only a limited number of seats, as it is a seated networking event which includes breakfast. So, book your seat and invite someone with, who you know would like to take hold of their financial planning.

Last minute presentations, we give you the skills at Avontuur Business Club

Aletta Rochat is passionate about helping you speak like a professional. So many people are talented and hardworking. They miss out on opportunities because they lack confidence to speak up in meetings, or to present in front of others. As a result, their voice is not heard and often their superb ideas never see the light of day. In addition, we never seem to have enough time to prepare for our presentations. We know we could do better, but don’t know how.

Aletta is a Certified World Class Speaking Coach as well as a Distinguished Toastmaster. She has spoken and trained in 21 countries. She delivers keynotes, dynamic training and coaching. She is a master story-teller who captivates her audiences.

Last Minute Presentation Secrets is the template you need to speak confidently, even if you have NO time to prepare. You will leave this event empowered, knowing exactly how to speak and connect with your audience. This is what you need to move from anxiety to confidence!
