Testimonials from Previous Speaking Engagements
Thank YOU for joining us this weekend and for being such an essential element of the weekend. Your knowledge and skills are invaluable not only to our participants but Mphoko and myself as well.
We look forward to working with you in the future.“ ~ Sibulele Lusaseni and Mphoko Matsie, Cege Consulting Johannesburg
“This was a value-adding experience for Fetola and our workshop participants. Most of the businesses on our programme require funding for their businesses, and the use of a role-reversal to explain funding from the funder’s perspective was a real eye-opener to get the entrepreneurs thinking in practical terms. Both useful and informative”~ Amanda Dinan, Fetola
I learnt a lot, particularly on how to secure funding by having a proper business plan with a good evaluation of the situation. ~ Dr John Ikombele.
Dagmar’s Speaking Topics:
“Get Funded – How to Secure Funding in South Africa.”
Every year, more than R25 billion is available to entrepreneurs in South Africa. Unfortunately, most applications to the funding agencies are declined, because most people take a wrong approach to business planning and creation, and don’t understand what the funding institutions are looking for.
Organisations like, DTI, SEDA and IDC are there to assist entrepreneurs and the South African economy, but can’t do so if the business ventures are not viable.
In this presentation, Dagmar Breiling will help your audience gain a solid understanding of:
• The process of applying for loans and grants
• The requirements of programmes
• The key criteria of the different agencies
• How to adjust and refine your business plan and application
“Creating a Winning Business Plan.”
Creating a solid business plan is the best way to launch a new business project. Smart thinking leads to smart action, and this is what leads to great success. It’s not just about drawing up the document; it’s about the research you have to carry out and the tough questions you have to ask yourself. It’s about the creativity of your approach, and about the value, you are creating for your customers.
Dagmar Breiling deals with hundreds of clients and funding applications every month and has developed a sharp insight into the factors that determine which applications will be successful and which ones will fail. She will enlighten your audience on how to go about the process, tell them what the relevant funding agencies are looking for, and deliver critical insights for creating a winning business plan.
“Your Successful Business Idea”
This talk is aimed at teaching entrepreneurs how to determine their best, most profitable business idea. It’s surprising but true: Too many entrepreneurs want to start their business in an industry they don’t know very well, with something they are not even passionate about and often without even working out how they can earn money with their idea! Through her many years of focusing on the world of business and working with hundreds of entrepreneurs, Dagmar Breiling will deliver key insights into the factors of business success.
