Introduction to Key Business Concepts Workshop

This workshop introduces the basic concepts of what a business is and does.

Learning Objectives

By the end of the workshop, the students should be able to demonstrate an understanding of:

  • Input - Output modelling
  • Cash to Cash cycle
  • Products & Markets processes
  • Generating Surplus

Workshop Duration

This workshop would normally take less than half a day. It is designed to precede other business and social enterprise workshops, to make them accessible to first-time business start-up students.

Please note that it may not be possible to achieve all the learning objectives in shorter versions of workshops.



CAN do

We provide learning materials for up to 16 trainees. If the venue does not have laptop and projector facilities these can be provided too. It would be helpful if the venue could provide a flipchart or whiteboard facilities.

You are asked to provide:

  • The venue
  • Catering or refreshments as required
  • The trainees
  • Marketing and publicity for the event. We may be able to help with this in some circumstances.
