Introduction of Programme

We are in the midst of challenging times for business across the board. With ever growing challenges, restrictions and fluctuations in the market, businesses must innovate and optimise their commercial activities in order to ensure a sustained growth in the month and years to come.
The emphasis on collaborative business models, business ecosystems and hybrid strategy is leading the charge in commercial innovation. Businesses must now rethink and remodel their strategic direction and tap into new channels for sustainable business growth and revenue generation.
The B2B | B2G Hybrid looks at the interactions between the public and private sector, exploring how to monetise and benefit from the tendering process and fundamentally use Government as a primary source of commercial development.

The purpose of Programme

The primary goal and purpose of this course is to equip participants with tools, techniques and methodologies to implement scalable business development for any organisation within the Start Up, SME and Enterprise space. We will teach how to effectively plan and implement creative business strategies, establish strategic direction and manage an integrated sales process. With a particular focus on Business to Government development, this course will demonstrate how to connect with public buyers and bring your solution to both local and international government bodies.
