Vision Achiever Business Training:
Scotiabank recognizes the unique needs of small businesses. We are committed to helping our customers become better off and in doing so, we are constantly reviewing our offerings. Today’s world is fast paced and ever changing, resulting in our customers seeking options that better suit their needs and vision of where they want their businesses to go.
In deepening SBTT’s commitment to the promotion and development of small business, the Scotiabank Vision Achiever Programme was introduced locally. This initiative was developed with the entrepreneur in mind – to help build capacity – so that they can manage their operations more efficiently and effectively.
The Programme aims to inspire both personal and professional development, helping business owners learn how to grow and build more profitable businesses through mentorship and coaching.
Over the past two years, the Bank partnered with Action Coach; the world’s number one business coaching firm known to have helped thousands of companies achieve more profit and build stronger teams.
Vision Achiever Youth:
We believe investing in young people is a crucial component on the path to community prosperity. This commitment to young people was the catalyst that lead us to introduce the Scotiabank Vision Achiever Youth Programme in 2017, geared specifically towards helping young people realise their dreams of becoming entrepreneurs.
The Programme targets budding entrepreneurs between the ages of 15 and 19 and is aimed at providing the students with the competencies required for running a profitable business. Topics covered include goal setting, the importance of marketing and having a USP, knowing your numbers and the importance of financials and team building.
