It’s one of those areas in business we’re all aware of, we all should espouse and one we’re pretty much in the dark about in terms of how to go about it in the most effective way! BEE or more specifically Broad Based Black Economic Empowerment (B-BBEE) Verification is a vital tool that helps you do business in South Africa, but for many it seems a minefield of misinformation and complicated legalisation.

Help is at hand! EconoBEE – SA’s leading Black Economic Empowerment consulting specialists – will be hosting a comprehensive conference on how to prepare for the B-BBEE verification process. This intensive yet easy to follow one day conference will help assist companies, corporates and government departments really understand B-BBEE.

During the conference delegates will be taken through issues like developing a BEE scorecard, how to get the best possible scorecard from your verification agency, how to prepare for verification and saving you time and money, the best way to appoint a verification agency and much more.

The recent Johannesburg and Cape Town conferences proved wonderfully successful demonstrating a full capacity audience in both cities. Thanks to the EconoBEE team, BEE material was discussed in an easy to digest and assimilate format. The extensive use of examples assisted delegates in relating the material to their own unique set of circumstances.

According to Tessa Kassel from Tessa Kassel Consulting, a Johannesburg delegate, “The Johannesburg EconoBEE conference was well worth the conference fee and time spent attending. I believe it was a critical business investment one cannot put a price to. The quality of the presentation was superior. The course material and take home items alone have provided me with a return on my capital investment. I will be able to use these items over and over again if I need to.”

“The subject matter of the conference is often perceived to be daunting, frightening and complex.  Attending these seminars has always proved the converse is true. I would recommend attending their seminars/workshops because business owners and entrepreneurs need to know that the BEE process does not mean to exclude them from meaningful participation in our vibrant economy”, continues Tessa.

“Verification can take ages if you haven’t properly prepared. It can also turn out that your scorecard is far lower than you expected!  Verification can be a pleasure or a pain depending on your understanding and approach.” Keith Levenstein, CEO, EconoBEE.
