Are you a 6 but want to be a 4? – EconoBEE Newsletter – 25 August 2014

EconoBEE - BEE Points = Business

Dear [Name]

Are you a 6 but want to be a 4?
The higher your score the better your business opportunities. Too often you have undertaken the right broad-based activities but end up with 1 or 2
BEE levels below what you deserve. Maybe you did not document your activities correctly, maybe you did not keep a good enough record of your training, maybe you did not realise that a contribution could earn you ED or SED points, so you never claimed it. Maybe your trust is structured incorrectly. Maybe you haven’t asked every single supplier for their BEE certificate or have not calculated your procurement spend correctly.

We know to ask these questions and find an answer!

The Amended codes make it even more difficult to earn points. Our forthcoming series of seminars will help you understand what to do, how to look for the points, how to ensure you maximise your points and maximise your profits.

Look at our track record:
Established as a specialist B-BBEE Consultancy in 2005. Helped some of the largest SA companies to do the right activities and get the best score possible. In one case we had 12 consultants working for 7 consecutive days to find 0.23 points for one of our clients. When we did they improved from a level 5 to a level 4.

A giant multi-national had already been verified as level 7 before we were appointed. During our sales meeting they mentioned the name of a South African company that held a small number of shares in their business. We told the potential client that they should have been a 6 due to 2.3 points that should have been earned on ownership. We were appointed, and immediately asked for a re-verification for ownership. The re-verification indeed yielded a genuine level 6.

Our seminars are not only full of knowledge, but are presented in an easy to follow method, by the hugely experienced Keith Levenstein. It’s no surprise that of all the training sessions being offered in the market, Keith is the person often interviewed on Radio (most recently 702), TV (most recently CNBC Africa) quoted in Business Report,  Business Day, Engineering Weekly to name a few.

Join us in September 2014 for our Practical Implementation of the Amended Codes Seminar where we go through the BEE codes in tremendous detail, practically identifying opportunities to earn points and improve your level.
