Venue: Online

This is a programme on how all employees sure to approach retirement shortly or in a few years time must plan how they will confront real economic issues after their employment in the organisation. The course shows that retiring from corporate employment needs not become a calamity. 

It also introduces participants to post-retirement Entrepreneurship and they are taken through an orientation of “entrepreneurial personality” which, rather than be characterised by a propensity for risk taking, will, among other things, focus success on one thing – “opportunity focused.”  They will learn a number of entrepreneurial logics and make them to dig deep into ideas underlying a product or service they may think of producing, prepare the ideas, get started, and keep it going with commitment.

The training will also give the participants the ways to:

  1. identify their talents and personal capabilities they can utilise elsewhere
  2. restructure their lives
  3. implement a new financial life plan
  4. if desired, start and run own businesses and become successful entrepreneurs
  5. invest wisely
  6. where needed, get new satisfying employment.
