The ESD training and mentoring was exceptional! It gave me a better knowledge on the benefits of ESD, which I was not aware of in the past. I managed to secure a 3-year contract with one of the mines to supply two Front End Loaders after this training and mentoring.

Through Prof. Christa's dedication and passion for Enterprise and Supplier Development we have learnt so much from her. The results of her expertise in her field have enabled Biovac to achieve the maximum points for ESD for many years consecutively. The Difference Makers also started managing our Socio- Economic Development initiatives.

Being mentored by TDM Mentors have been the best thing that has happened to me. I have learned and grown so much, both as a person and in my business. I found in my mentor a sort of “sharing partner” which was very beneficial to my business development.

The Enterprise and Supplier Development (ESD for SMMEs) is very detailed and covers topics that are not easily shared with entrepreneurs in other programmes. I have implemented the majority of the learnings in my business. For small businesses to successfully work with government and large enterprises, it is crucial to go through this training. The detail is about improving the strategy you will implement as an entrepreneur.

Prof. Christa's positive energy and thoughtful insight while engaging with our moderator and the audience was exceptional! On behalf of The Institute for Stakeholder Relations Southern Africa (iSRSA), we are truly grateful for your time!

The Enterprise and Supplier Development (ESD for SMMEs) session was a real eye-opener. Prof. Christa shared crucial details that are seldom shared about B-BBEE and how to use it for our benefit as SMMEs. It added a lot to my knowledge on B-BBEE and Preferential Procurement. The session is invaluable to helping SMMEs to know why and how B-BBEE is designed to effectively work for SMMEs when engaging with private sector clients.

This is what many female entrepreneurs need in their businesses. It is a network which is building others, where information is shared, and women support each other. The community shares opportunities. I loved the Workshops offered in the program. The learning of the importance of Reporting and Compliance was an eye opener in the way it was done. The same applies to the Marketing and other workshops.
