The five day Supplier Development boot camp brings together supply chain expertise, business development specialists and sessions on personal leadership. “With increased opportunities to sell to big business comes added responsibilities,” Nolu Tutani, MEDO Programme Manager explains. “Having all the governance in place is simply the ticket to the game, being black owned does not entitle the business to getting the sale. Running a sustainable and scalable enterprise takes great self-discipline and can result in a rewarding business supplying corporates and government”.
Supplier Development Programmes are customised for corporate and public sector clients.
See a few of our case studies:
Tsogo Sun Entrepreneurs
The Tsogo Sun Supplier Development programme is a customised programme for Sun1 Operators and Housekeeping Service Providers. The focus is on corporate governance, labour compliance and standardised systems implementation. Suggested by MEDO, this programme elevates the professionalism of these suppliers to have the capacity to deliver to big business.
BT Global Services
In 2014 MEDO assisted seven local entrepreneurs to enter the big league by completing the MEDO BT Supplier Development Boot camp. Sponsored by BT Global Services, the intensive week long boot camp had the entrepreneurs critically assessing their small businesses and rebuilding them as sustainable suppliers for large business.
The week culminated in a presentation event at which the entrepreneurs were introduced to BT executives and MEDO partners.
HRG Rennies Travel
Intensive Supply Chain analysis revealed opportunities for micro and and small businesses as suppliers to HRG Rennies Travel. These opportunities were made available to the beneficiaries of the Enterprise Development Programme, and the response was overwhelming. After completing the MEDO Supplier Development Bootcamp, the enterprises were introduced to HRG Rennies executives to pitch their businesses.
