There will be a workshop on Wed 5 April from 2:30 5:00pm (school holidays).
These workshops are free to traders and will include awards and a short social after.
Date: Wed 5 April
Venue: Peak Academy, 1st Floor of the Triangle Square Building, 49 First Avenue, Fish Hoek. Gmap I will have a banner outside. Entrance is through the white gate next to Horton’s Bake shop and up the stairs. There is heaps of parking in the lot across the road. Many thanks to Peak Academy for hosting us!
We begin the workshop at 2:30 sharp. Doors will be open from 2pm for drop offs. If your child wants to come but you are at work, please give me a call and I will see if we can connect lifts.
The formal workshop will be about one hour with about 30 minutes for discussion and personal help afterwards.
At 4pm we will do the awards for the traders who participated between our last workshop in December and now.
From 4:30 there will be a social with a little party and some fun activities and we will be doing some trader interviews for the website for those who wish to participate.
Please collect children by 5pm.
Please contact me if you are at work and cannot transport children to this. I will do my best to assist and can take some kids home with me if you can only collect after work.
These are light, fun events but the improvement in performance after attending has been great. This workshop will concentrate on marketing and sales. We will explain the broader function of marketing, identification of consumer needs, the “Four P’s” and examine some pricing strategies. We will look at using the feedback from the summer trading to refine our products and maximize returns. There will be a bit more theory than usual as the experienced traders are ready to move forward, but I will have some activities out for the younger kids to keep them engaged. We will work through some free and paid online advertising strategies with details on how to refine target markets in order to maximize reach. There will also be a short segment on online safety for children. Parents are welcome to attend.
Any group of 5 or more can initiate a workshop to catch up – I particularly recommend everyone gets to the costing and pricing module. We can fit that in these holidays too if there is enough demand.
Please bring snacks and drinks to share.
Everyone is welcome at these events and as always all suggestions and assistance gratefully accepted. There is no charge for kids who are trading or planning to trade but donations are always welcome. For those attending who are not part of the PMM a R50 contribution is requested.
Any assistance with the event itself, refreshments, transport, sponsorship of prizes and certificates would be most gratefully accepted as this is a self funding NPO.
Please RSVP with a message to 0833840590 or a mail to firstname.lastname@example.org as spaces are limited.
