Mall business owners in Ibadan, Oyo State, will convene at Mouve 21 Event Centre, today and tomorrow for the first phase of a four-day Micro, Small, and Medium Enterprises (MSME) Workshop organized by Sterling Bank Plc.

The second phase would hold at the same venue between September 28 to 29, 2016. The bank had organized similar workshops in Lagos, Port Harcourt, Kaduna and Onitsha with over 300 MSME operators trained, while members of the Lagos Chapter of the Nigerian Association of Small and Medium Enterprises (NASME) benefitted from the same programme last month.

According to the bank, the workshop is aimed at providing participants with the opportunity to fully appreciate the concept of entrepreneurship. “Participants will be well positioned to enhance their managerial capacity and well equipped to navigate the challenging operating environment”, the bank explained in the statement.

The training covers basic accounting skills, customer service and team building, sales and marketing, essentials of business plans and human resources management, among others.

The bank’s Group Head, Strategy and Communications, Shina Atilola, had earlier explained that the lender would be anchoring a series of workshops for small business operators in various states nationwide.

According to him, the financial institution came up with the workshop to support MSMEs in the country and enable them grow to become established institutions, given the potential role they play in economic development.

“SMEs remain the pillar of any growing economy and the operators in the sector must be well positioned and equipped for accelerated growth and positive impact on the economy,” he said.
