WEConnect International and Procter & Gamble have previously partnered in South Africa (2017 and 2019) to provide the Business Development Program (BDP), a 10-module capacity building training program, to a diverse range of women business owners registered with WEConnect International. The course was highly rated by the trainees – not only the relevance of the content, but also the expertise of the presenters and facilitators, many of whom were from the P&G leadership team.
In response to the current COVID-19 pandemic business environment in South Africa, WEConnect International and P&G have developed the virtual Business Development Program – South Africa 2020 to assist women business owners to rapidly rethink, restructure, and rebuild their businesses.
The program has three virtual components:
- TEN WEBINARS open to women-owned businesses registered with WEConnect International on priority topics facilitated by WEConnect International and led by P&G South Africa Function Heads and Subject Matter Experts. Join any or all of the webinars below at the registration link!
- STRUCTURED, VIRTUAL TRAINING MODULES for 25 selected participants led by P&G experts. Apply here by May 15.
- VIRTUAL CATEGORY/MARKET SECTOR-BASED COACHING groups led by P&G experts, available to current program participants and past alumni of the BDP program.
