Start Your Own Business Programs
Many people starting up new businesses have expertise in their chosen profession but may lack the business knowledge to run a successful business. EMS Consulting Start Your Own Business Programs are designed to help people prepare to set up and/or run their businesses for growth. The programs introduce entrepreneurs and owner/managers to the tools required to become more competitive in a challenging environment and to develop a range of skills to help run a better business. The aim of the program is to help participants to understand the management hurdles that exist when establishing a business.
Management Development Programs
After the early stages of developing a business, owner/managers switch their focus from business survival to business growth and development. Key to this change in focus is developing their management and planning skills to provide a solid foundation for the development of the business. EMS Management Development Programs offer a combination of strategic business development workshops as well as one-to-one mentoring for the participants to concentrate on their business future.

EMS Consulting Women In Business Programs are designed to help overcome some of these issues through access to business information, confidence building, networking and personal development. The program introduces participants to the tools required to become more competitive in a challenging environment and to develop a range of skills to help run a better business. Ultimately, the objective of the program is to prepare women to set up and/or run their businesses for growth.
