InBusiness Seminars

Focusing on key areas of interest, such as digital media, effective networking and sales techniques – the InBusiness Series offers interactive seminars and workshops with leading experts, providing Chamber Members with the necessary knowledge, skills and confidence to go out and win more business! The objective is to help businesses improve their performance in key areas and kick their business up to the next level. The idea is to share knowledge, conduct open discussions, and hold question and answer sessions. Each workshop is a half day long (8:30-11:30 am) with clearly defined goals for maximum impact.

Next Generation Leaders’ Series

The Chamber is introducing a new series of breakfast or afternoon events to engage an audience of entrepreneurs and experienced managers who are looking to progress to the next stage in leadership. Being an entrepreneur, is often a balancing act. It’s as much about channeling all your energy into a bold idea as it is about knowing when and how to pivot where necessary. Some corporations are notable for attracting and retaining the best and brightest innovators and future leaders. What makes these companies so successful and attractive? How can you raise your profile within these organisations, and take advantage of the networks they offer to build your leadership potential? These breakfast events will give Next Generation of Leaders the new skills needed to make that transition. This Networking Event is of unparalleled value to the innovation and start-up community, and to the NEXT generation business leadership. Each event has a keynote speaker who will give insights into their career and their leadership style.

Namibia Business Journal

Watch for the upcoming issues of the Namibia Business Journal (NBJ), it is destined to have a fresh new focus, to provide thought-provoking and progressive pieces written by leading management thinkers, consultants and practitioners. We hope the NBJ provides practical insights and suggestions that you will be able to apply to your own organization or situation. Managers and entrepreneurs, alongside business students and educators, should find expert thoughts on topics such as leadership, marketing and strategy, among others in the NBJ. On this stretch, we hope to make it an even more interactive resource for our international audience of executives, corporate directors, managers, business academics and students.

The new NBJ will not publish articles focusing on current issues on a bi-monthly basis. Instead, it will offer feature content offering practical takeaways on management issues and research as well as exclusive NBJ Interviews and NBJ Insights offering unique analysis of management issues, current events and market trends.

At NBJ, we firmly believe a never-ending process of reflection and learning is the key to good leadership and management.” The new NBJ will serve as a hub for research with practical applications, expert views and compelling thought leadership. No longer tied to current affairs topics, the publication will be able to post timely feature content always targeted at improving the practice of management. The new focus should make the NBJ more flexible and nimble. We can publish relevant articles responding quickly to global events.

SME Coaching Scheme

The SME Coaching Scheme is an impact oriented program. It is focused on SMEs with potential and giving them business innovation coaching. Beneficiaries can receive up to 15 days of coaching (3 days at phase 1 and 12 days at phase 2). Although coaching can be given to any SME, the logic of the scheme itself and the evaluation is biased towards SME with high growth potential through innovation.

The scheme focuses on existing SMEs with growth potential, not start-ups. Firstly, these SMEs already have an ability to operate, rather than having to establish capacity from scratch. Secondly, these SMEs know their market, and will have established distribution channels, enabling them to focus on innovating the product or service itself, rather than having to establish entirely new capabilities. Thirdly, these SMEs can frequently fund themselves organically rather than rely on scheme to bear all associated costs.

Coaches help the beneficiaries to progress over the life cycle of their innovation, from idea to proof of concept, to first pilot application and finally upscaling and expansion. They will empower the SME to cope with challenges such as developing their strategy and organisation, identifying their market and improving ability to attract finance.

Coaching Services

The coaching approach is built on a philosophy of "sense and solve" -understanding the context of the company and empowering the management for handling similar challenges in the future on their own.

Based on this philosophy, two distinct coaching services are available:
  • Business development: focused on the identification, analysis and evaluation of potential business opportunities, the definition of business segments and the development of an effective marketing mix; and
  • Organisational Development: aimed at mobilizing the resources of the SME to ensure the efficiency and performance of the SME as an organisation
