CED, in conjunction with the Adult and Continuing Education Unit, Mesopotamia, will conduct the one-week CPED workshop for members

of the Evesham Development Organization (EDO) and other interested members of the community. It will focus on aspects of small business management, with the aim to equip participants to start and operate successful businesses.

The CPED workshop will be facilitated by business consultant Dougal James, and will run from 5 p.m. to 7 p.m., March 16-20 at the Evesham Learning Resource Centre.

It is expected that the training will help place participants in a better position to create wealth through self-employment. Participants are expected to, among other things, gain a better understanding of entrepreneurship, marketing, financial management, and human resource management skills for small businesses. They will also have a better understanding of the roles of the National Insurance Services and the SVG Bureau of Standards.

Earlier this month, 15 residents of Georgetown and surrounding areas took part in a CPED workshop, which CED hosted in conjunction with the Community Development Unit.
