basis of a long-term relationship with our clients

of our clients were little known while others were
well-known. Most of our clients are still in the
process of becoming leaders in their niche. Well-known
clients often come to us because of our internationally
acclaimed methodology, which is as powerful as it
is unique. Other clients come to us simply because
they want to grow more quickly, and want a mentor
whose vision and values are aligned with their own.

discussed, this is a summary of my experience at
the EUg workshop dubbed "Helping Clients to
greatest challenge prior to this training was having
an appreciation of the value of this training for
our customers and as a result, being able to sell
it better on the value considering that we were
not getting the right numbers of clients interested
in the bank-funded programmes that are run by EUg.
Many of us even thought we were going to waste a
weekend away from our families or our other interests.
We were pleasantly surprised.
brief, the greatest benefit for us (but especially
me as a person) was in the following areas.
Better understanding of our SME market especially
our ability to understand causes of business failure,
behaviours of SMEs and various risk areas that would
help us make better appraisals.
* Various options of capital that go beyond just
looking to lend/borrow and how this helps us to
create better customers.
* Key Success Factors for entrepreneurs and how
businesses can use these to guide decision-making
* Last but not least, it gave us very very good
tips on how to be successful business people outside
the bank if and when we choose to move on at whatever
point in life. This was particularly very rewarding.
personally recommend that our colleagues take up
this opportunity especially considering that it
comes at no cost whatsoever (aside of one's time).

management was not linked to audit reports which
were mainly for tax purposes. Efforts have been
made to link management decisions to audit reports,
staff responsibilities written and given to staff,

Enterprise Uganda helped us in isolating the particular
competencies to utilize in business in our case:
Setting goals and planning; Persistence; Networking.
These particular three have been developed since
training. The company is now well known and we have
also gained approval from former competitors, who

ETW gave me confidence to walk into a bank and ask
for a loan, something I had dreaded and thought
myself incapable of doing. I was able to get an
unsecured loan because of my presentation, which
is something I learnt from the Entrepreneurship
Workshop. My business has now been boosted and is
doing very well. I had actually contemplated closing
it before the training. I am grateful for this opportunity
and hope that many more women can benefit from it".
Tugume , Managing Director, Scorpion Traders Ltd.
I attended the Entrepreneurship Training Workshop,
I have never looked back! Before the training I
was extremely stressed and even had no time for
my family and myself. I was always busy fire fighting
and this gave me no time to contemplate the future
of my company. I learnt many things at the workshop
and what I value most is the ability to create and
maintain systems. Systems have freed me and as a
result I am getting the best out of my employees,
my profits are going up, the work place is a happy
one and I now have time for my children and myself.
I have recommended the course to many of my friends
who have noted my positive change. I hope they too
can have the same opportunity that I had.”
training has improved my confidence as a Manager.
I take more calculated risks, market more and the
number of my corporate clients have increased".
