Who wants this developed? 48967 National Certificate: Business Advising Operations

Those of you who develop or purchase new programmes know that developing a new Qualification is an expensive process. Are there any companies that want to have this developed?Associates of mine have ONE company who wants this developed but they cannot afford the development costs alone. So if others come on board we can make this happen!Please contact Zelda or Helene at or More

Don't Ever Underestimate Experience

Posted on May 31, 2016 at 9:43 0 Comments

Taken from LinkedIn - An update from Mark Varner (Belt Press and Dewatering Equipment Rentals)

A ship engine failed, no one could fix it. Then they brought in a man with 40 yrs. on the job. He inspected the engine carefully, top to bottom. After looking things over, the guy reached into his bag and pulled out a small hammer. He gently tapped something. Instantly, the engine lurched into life. The engine was fixed! 7 Days later the owners got his bill for 10k. 'What?!' the…


Thank You Skills Universe

Posted on May 23, 2016 at 13:47 2 Comments

I thought that I understood the value of this platform, until last week. As Skills Universe error 500'd and then poof vanished, I realized that Skills Universe is an integral part of my business.

And all for Free.

So a big shout out to everyone that worked round the clock to get SU back up. I deeply appreciate everyone who works behind the scenes to make this all…


Stop Wasting Time!

When will companies or new Training Service providers realise that when wanting to go the Accreditation route there are NO SHORTCUTS. A few weeks ago I write a blog about people usually taking good care when it comes to buying their car but actually don’t seem to care about the quality of the Training Material OR bother going the route of getting an expert in to help with Accreditation.

I wish there were a really good English version of “Goedkoop is Duurkoop” (Penny wise/Pound…


Shopping Tips for Training Material

Posted on March 16, 2016 at 12:33 0 Comments

How do you decide to make a major purchase, such as a car,house or even clothing? You will most likely do the following:

  • Ensure you have the time to shop around
  • Narrow your choices down
  • Go to a reputable store
  • Understand what type of brand you are looking for. Will it be BMW or 1966 Volkswagen Beatle?
  • Know your budget. Are you going to go cheap and regret it later or spend a bit more now and have your product last?
  • Chat to some…

Differentiation - Another method of Learning and Instruction

Posted on March 10, 2016 at 13:00 2 Comments

We can write the best manuals in the world but the Facilitator still needs to have some structure in the classroom, and the Facilitator Guide can help a great deal here. I have been doing some research on various manners in which knowledge can be permanently transferred to adult learners. I came across Differentiated Instruction and looked into it. Some of the principles are known in our SA environment.

Although this methodology is used in the GET band,  I wonder if it cannot be used…

Morning Tass

Do you have any material for Internal Diplomacy and protocol?  I have had a request for facilitation but the client has no material and would like me to develop for them!  Not being a fan of reinventing the wheel and knowing your work, my first step is to contact you! 

Attached is a brief of what they would like to include on their course. 

Would you have any material to cover this?

What would be the cost for off the shelf or to develop specifically for them.  Not sure if there are any unit standards available, but they are not really needed. 

Many thanks


PS.  Please could you send me an email with info to
