This workshop training is tailored towards
all employees approaching retirement shortly, or in a few yearsâ€™ time;
they will confront real economic issues after their years of employment
in their respective organizations. The course shows that retiring from
corporate employment needs not become a calamity. It also introduces
participants to post-retirement Entrepreneurship, as they are taken
through an orientation of â€œentrepreneurial personalityâ€ which, rather
than being characterized by a propensity for risk taking, will among
other things focus on one thing â€“ â€œopportunities maximization.â€ Â
Delegates will learn a number of
entrepreneurial logics and be made to dig deep into ideas - underlying a
product or service they could think of venturing into, prepare such
ideas, getting started, and keeping it going with commitment.
The workshop will also give the participants ways to:
Identify their talents and personal capabilities that they can utilize elsewhere
Restructure their lives
Implement a successful financial life plan
If desired, start and run own business and become successful entrepreneurs
Where needed, get new satisfying employment.

Who Should Attend
We recommend that employees attend this
workshop programme at least three years prior to retirement. By so
doing, they are afforded the luxury of time to do everything necessary
in good time.
Itâ€™s essential that female employees or
the partners of male employees attend before their Â pension age even if
they intend to work past this age.
If they donâ€™t, they risk losing lots of money to Â pension by failing to have paid sufficient national insurance contributions.
We do urge employers to allow partners,
other family members or a friend to accompany the retiree. This is
because retirement will affect all those they interact with. Whether
family or friends, our pre-retirement workshop course has various topics
that will interest everyone.
Our portfolio of more than 200 training courses are currently designed to address the current training needs of our clients incorporating latest trends and internationally accepted best practices, in each distinct subject area.
