This awards programme is open to all businesses and not only those in Roodepoort. Anyone associated with a successful business may nominate the business. This includes employees, suppliers, buyers, bankers, business agencies, attorneys, accountants etc. Public nominations are welcomed and encouraged.
Biz-Guru received the Bronze accolade in the Small Business of the Year category.
“The fact that we were nominated just 18 months after breaking away from the international franchise whose brand we traded on for years, is a huge compliment. Achieving Bronze shows how far our brand and business have come. It is very humbling to be recognised for the hard work and the change that we effect in the businesses that we work with. It has been an awesome journey!” says Anthea Vorster, founder of Biz-Guru.
Biz-Guru was started in 2008. Since then they have worked with hundreds of companies ranging from macro-sized to single person businesses, helping them to attain dramatic breakthroughs in sales, team building and change management.
The Biz-Guru approach to change management is possibly the secret to their success. Using a proprietary analysis tool to objectively and scientifically determine the net present position of both the business they are working with and individual people within it, Biz-Guru is able to quickly and accurately identify areas of development.
This results in a Growth Map that provides clarity, focus and direction. Biz-Guru then helps the business to achieve this designed growth in a matter of weeks by developing a business strategy which includes sales, BEE and skills development. Finally, Biz-Guru coaches the leadership team and drives the change, helping their clients to reach the agreed milestones on their Growth Map. This continuous process creates sustainable change and remarkable results for their clients.
