This is the basics workshop on Broad-Based Black Economic Empowerment (B-BBEE) that you have been missing!

BEESA has been in the business of providing B-BBEE consulting and training for over a decade. As a result, we have encountered most situations as they may relate to B-BBEE and its implementation. We have discovered a common challenge that many of those trying to implement B-BBEE are facing and that is that they have either never read the Codes of Good Practice or for those that have, many have found it to be a challenging read, further complicated by negative emotional sentiment and varying interpretive issues.

With this workshop, we simplify the B-BBEE Codes of Good Practice through an understandable presentation where we promote questions and discussion. We also cover many of the interpretive issues that are faced in real-world implementation along with ways that these can be dealt with.

This workshop is a must for anyone newly tasked with the implementation or management of B-BBEE in their business or those seeking a better understanding of the NEW B-BBEE Codes of Good Practice.
