Lynne Strauss

Head of the BEE Academy

Lynne is an accomplished BEE Consultant with over 6 years in the BEE Audit environment and 4 years as a Senior Analyst and B-BBEE Technical Consultant. Lynne now holds the position of BEE Training Manager as well as BEESA’s own internal Learning and Development Manager.

Skills Development has been identified as a Priority Element under the B-BBEE Codes of Good practice.

This, along with increased spend and the new EAP (Economically Active Population) targets, requires a business to place a lot more focus on Skills Development to achieve at least the sub-minimum requirement for each category in the element.

Failure to reach the new sub-minimum will result in an automatic drop in one BEE Level irrespective of overall scoring.

Join us in this workshop to obtain an in-depth understanding of all the changes relating to the Skills Development Element along with ways to maximise your score under the Amended B-BBEE Codes of Good Practice.
