Enhance the business skills and life experience of your employees
Change in business is constant and accelerating. New Opportunities need new approaches and new approaches need new perspectives.
But faced with the day-to-day routine, how do we acquire these new approaches and perspectives? We need “intra-preneurs” that think outside the box.
“Intra-preneurs” need to learn and experience entrepreneurial skills but these can be hard to find within the confines of a well-established organisation.
And the best way to learn to think outside your own box, is to experience the world from a radically different box – in a totally different environment.
WE2 builds social enterprise projects that bring the experience of the whole gamut of entrepreneur skills – strategy, marketing, sales, operations and finance – in the microcosm of a small project for a charity in the developing world – a radically different “box”!
And coincidentally what the developing world needs to develop, is business and commercial expertise and experience. Therefore, we have the exchange of business expertise for the life and practical experience of a project in Africa. The mission of WE2 is to bring these opportunities together to make a difference.
Unlike a “Business Game” this is a real world situation that delivers real value and social impact
Team building – that is more business oriented than just “building a raft”
A customised package to address your training and business needs
A complete program devised, managed and implemented
Past, present and some ideas for future projects here -
Young people in Uganda leave secondary school with good academic results. However, in a primarily rural community they do not have the vocational skills to become economically self-sufficient.
The charity would like to establish a vocational training centre to give students the life, technical and business skills to build their own businesses and so become self-sufficient. This facility needs to be commercially self-sustaining as income from donations is not predictable over the long term.
A feasibility study and budgetary model, making recommendations to the charity on the best approach.
Over a period of three months, the team spend a few hours a week
A two week field trip to the charity in Uganda
A two week period back in the UK
