Internet cafe business 2010 workshops schedule

Ramon Thomas teaching Internet Cafe workshops in JohannesburgThis announcement is two years overdue. So I apologise to my loyal readers who have persisted in asking me about past Internet Cafe workshops. This is what you have been waiting for!

NETucation is South Africa’s leading experts on the Internet Cafe industry, and we are the only organisation to conduct training on how to set-up the Internet Cafe from scratch. These workshops are conducted only twice per annum because it is a very specialised course an curriculim we follow that is updated on annual basis to take all Internet and broadband trends into consideration.

Cybercafe workshops are design to help entrepreneurs with no knowledge of the Internet or small business enter this sector of the Internet industry.

We are proud to announce the 2010 workshop schedule in association with:

Yusuf Mahomedy regularly writes for The Star Workplace and HR Future on employment and jobs. He will teach all the basics of moving from employment to self-employed and running a business that employs people. He also co-presented the previous workshop with us in 2008. And we have also recruited Thuto Moshile, the owner of the largest network of Internet Cafes in the Vaal Triangle. While we focus on the Internet business strategies, computer hardware, networking equipment and software for time management, billing and point of sale solutions.

There will be an interactive Q&A section for all delegates irrespective of your background, skills or experience in this industry. So feel free to post comments below with all your questions before hand and we will answer them in detail. Also bring along any documentation like business plans or application forms for government funding.

What is this training worth to you? This workshops covers the following and more:

  • Small business basics
  • Bookkeeping, Tax, UIF, hiring employees
  • Government funding vs loans
  • Internet Cafe location planning
  • Computer Hardware renting or buying, technical support, becoming a reseller
  • Internet Cafe software, Point of Sales (POS), CRM sales software to track clients

You save hundreds of hours of research because we have done that already for you. You receive my recommendations on all hardware and other equipment from preferred suppliers; and what we go into detail on what Internet Service Providers to use because we have evaluated the options to gain the best price/performance ratios. Translated this could save you tends of thousands of Rand, which can be better spent on your own training and marketing. You can get going much quicker after this workshop, and you will have more confidence in the success of your new small business venture. We are here to help you have more freedom, more flexibility, more cash flow and create jobs while uplifting your communities, increasing Internet literacy in your region, and giving the people cheaper, faster and quicker access to the world through the Web, email, VOIP and online social networking.

  • Dear Ramon,

    I am alos interested in opening a cafe where I am staying. Would you book me in and will make the poayment by thrursday if that wont be let I hope??


    • The Gauteng Internet Cafe workshop has been postponed due to unforseen circumstances. The new date is Thursday, 18 March. Same venue: Sandton Library. This will allow me to give you a much better experience because I missed my flight back to Johannesburg on Sunday past. This mistake has put me under tremendous amount of pressure. Some invoices has been sent.

      And for anyone who’s booked and paid. If you are unable to make the new date, you can either request a refund or allow me to schedule a special training session just for you. The two delegates from Durban, I’m even willing to travel to Durban and do your training their to make it up you.
