ABV re-launched the Your Enterprise Scheme (YES) at a cocktail reception in Sydney CBD on 3 December 2014. Over 80 dignitaries, past YES facilitators, ABV volunteers and guests attended the event, organised by Australian Business Volunteers and the Australian Papua New Guinea Business Council – hosted by Westpac.
Your Enterprise Scheme is designed to raise the skills of business owners of micro, small and medium enterprises through five days of management workshops and four-weeks of face-to-face mentoring – facilitated by Australian volunteers with extensive experience in running small businesses. The event will showcase a recent pilot YES program delivered in Port Moresby in September-October 2014.
ABV also announced an ambitious plan to conduct 50 workshops across Papua New Guinea over the next three years, with the support of partners, sponsors and donations.
